From the Pastor's Desk
Dear Parishioners,
Confirmation: Our 70 candidates along with four
others from neighboring parishes were confirmed by
Bishop Robert McElroy last Sunday at a prayerful
and joyful celebration of the Eucharist. In my thankyou speech at the end, as usual, I invited those confirmed to not only practice the faith but also share it
in a way the community can see and be inspired by.
When these young men and women spend time and
energy on academics, sports, entertainment, etc.,
some attention needs to be given to faith, which in
the Catholic Church we practice in private as well as
in a very public way, by joining together in prayer
and deeds of service. This has been our tradition for
over 2000 years. Parents, teachers, parishioners,
clergy, and others need to work together to encourage these young men and women to grow in the life
of the Spirit.
I would like to thank Karen Guglielmoni, our Faith
Formation Coordinator; the dedicated catechists:
David & Maria Collins, Liz Hornick & Vicki Dimitroff, Mary & Melissa Martin, Pat Murray, Pamela
Silva & Sara Theisen, Sandi Zicke & Pamela
Lucero, Christine & Patrick Lucy, and the youth
retreat team led by Patrick Lucy. They have done a
fabulous job again. Kudos to them!
Lent: This Wednesday--- Ash Wednesday--- we
start the season of holiness and wholeness. Ashes
will be placed on our foreheads with the words:
“Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall
return.” Powerful and hard words, indeed! And yet,
it’s the truth about our lives. The reminder of our
mortality can help us live more deeply and lovingly.
One thing that can happen in Lent for us is that we
may gain a perspective on life and see a bit more
clearly what matters and what does not---in the long
run. Let’s do something extra in Lent. Maybe, join
the daily Mass, if possible. Attend the weekend
Mass regularly. Give to those in need. Join us for the
Stations of the Cross. Spend some time daily in
prayer. Explore how we can become better human
beings and better Christians.
Archbishop’s Annual Appeal (AAA): Last weekend we launched the month-long campaign for AAA.
I preached at all the Masses and invited everyone to
participate in this noble and necessary project of raising $46,900. We assist the Archbishop as he carries
out his mission and ministries in the Archdiocese
spread over three counties. Parishioners, faith formation families, school families, visitors, various organizations within our parish! I invite all of you--each one of you---to participate in this appeal and donate so that we can complete it within a month. I will
be placing the donors’ names in the bulletin as a way
of thanking you for your generosity.
Lenten Mini-Retreat: Saturday March 03, 2012.
This is something new. It’s planned to make it as easy
and convenient as possible for many parishioners and
school/faith formation families to participate as part
of our Lenten holy practices. It will start with the 8:30
a.m. Mass celebrated by Father Bernie Bush, S.J., a
well-known and popular retreat preacher from El Retiro, Los Altos. After coffee and donuts, Fr. Bush will
give the first session around 9:30. After a break, there
will be a second session. Retreat will close with lunch
around 12:30 p.m. The cost: FREE. Come one, come
Word of God: This Sunday’s gospel gives us the
healing story of the paralytic who is lowered down
through the roof! An interesting way to bring this
poor man in contact with Jesus! Isn’t it true that we
all need others to bring us to Jesus because for some
reason or another we are unable to get to him on our
own. We need others to walk with us and share our
thoughts and anxieties, our faith and wisdom. We
have to hang together or we’ll hang separately!
Think about it: Somebody has said there are only
two kinds of people in the world. There are those who
wake up in the morning and say, "Good morning,
Lord ," and there are those who wake up in the morning and say, "Good Lord, it's morning."
Your Friend and Pastor,
Father Charles Puthota
