TENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME | JUNE 5, 2016
A MESSAGE FROM OUR PASTOR, FATHER DAN
ARE YOU NEW TO OUR PARISH? WELCOME, WELCOME! Thank you
for coming. We love to have new people join us. We are delighted to have you with us!
ARE YOU A LONG-TIME PARISHIONER? You are very important to
“I’VE RECENTLY COME BACK TO MASS” or “I moved into the area
and I like this parish.” I have the pleasure of hearing things like
this. Doesn’t it feel great to have folks coming home to Jesus
and his family here in our parishes! Isn’t it great when you hear
of a loved one finding their way home! When I chat with folks
coming back to one of our three parishes I hear them compliment, among other things: the warmth of the people and staff,
the music, and sometimes even the homilies – and more! Helping those disconnected find their way home to a warm welcome in our parishes, and helping those already connected take the next step in a deeper relationship with Jesus is at the heart of my Pastor’s Vision.
GREAT BOOK: JOSHUA: A PARABLE FOR TODAY, by Joseph Grizone. This is a charming and
short book of fiction that can help us get to know Jesus. I loved it. An easy and interesting
read. Often assigned at Catholic High Schools.
RECOMMENDED WEBSITE: USCCB DAILY READINGS www.usccb.org/bible. There you will
find the Mass Bible readings for the day in both written and audio form. If you choose, you
can also listen to a 4-minute reflection on them. (USCCB = United States Conference of
MY MAY 29 HOMILY THOUGHT: Jesus is at our side and in our hearts, and he gives us renewed strength in the Eucharist – his own body and blood -- so that we can handle the
challenges of our times.
FIND YOUR LIFE BY GIVING IT TO GOD! Living for God is the way to happiness. Even greater
happiness comes, and we make an even bigger difference for the better, when we discover what the unique plan is that Jesus has for our life. What is Jesus dream for your life?
CALIFORNIA BIG PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY is this Tuesday. “Holy Spirit, please guide all those
involved in the presidential selection process -- giving them an abundance of wisdom
SPORTS UPDATE – My IPhone tells me that after a three game losing streak our Sox are in
extra Innings and leading 5-3 (5/29/16). And we are still in first place. “Free Tom Brady!”
you!-- Fr Dan
God bless you!
NEW POLISH PRIEST: Welcome Fr. Mariusz! On July 1, Fr. Mariusz Lis, of the Society of Christ,
will be assigned by Cardinal Sean to our collaborative as a Parochial Vicar. He will have
responsibilities in all three parishes, but will be especially focused on St. John the Baptist,
especially the Polish speaking Community. He will be living at Immaculate Conception.
He is in his 40s. I will continue as Pastor of all three parishes, and I will continue my regular
presence at St. John the Baptist. Having just served in Brazil, his English is not yet perfect,
but he knows a fair amount already and the rest will come with time. I am delighted to
have him! – Fr. Dan

POPE FRANCIS ON CLIMATE CHANGE: (From his
Encyclical on the Environment that came out a
year ago.) “A very solid scientific consensus
indicates that we are
presently witnessing a
disturbing warming of the
climatic system. Once we
start to think about the kind
of world we are leaving to
future generations, we look
at things differently. The
world we have received
also belongs to those who
will follow us.”
