Advent Giving Tree
Welcome Kits For Refugees

    Refugees often flee their homes at a moment’s notice. They arrive at our airport with few belongings, a difficult past, and high hopes for the future. With your help
this Advent Season, we as a community can meet the tangible needs of newly arriving refugee families by building “Welcome Kits”. These kits provide the basic household items needed for their new start in a place of safety.
    Our Advent Giving Tree can be found in the narthex of the church. You are welcome to take an ornament, which contains a list of items needed to build a “Welcome Kit” , off the tree. Unless specified, items on the list may be used, but must be clean and in good condition. Collect the items on the list, pack them in a sturdy box or large plastic bin, and return them to the parish office by Sunday, December 18.
    These Welcome Kits for Refugees will be given to World Relief Modesto, a non-profit agency providing services to refugees—victims of war and persecution around the world—who are being placed in Stanislaus County. Your generosity and prayers are greatly appreciated.
Children’s Liturgy Of The Word
will be offered for children ages 4-9, beginning Sunday, November 27 at the 10 AM Mass. Liturgy of the Word with Children offers an experience for the children to hear the Scriptures in words they understand and to share their own understanding of God’s word.
After the Introductory Rites, the presider invites any children wishing to participate to join the leader and proceed to the worship space set aside for them. They return after the Prayer of the Faithful to celebrate the Liturgy of the Eucharist with the entire community.
For more information contact Joyce Teixeira.
Faith: The Next Generation – Pass It On!
Boldly go where many have gone before and help pass on the Good News of Jesus Christ and our Catholic faith! This fall, there are about 400 children and young people, grades 1 through 12, attending classes to learn more about Jesus and their Catholic faith. At this time, there are still classes which have no teacher or teacher’s assistant. You can help by becoming a catechist. As you nurture the faith of our young, you will learn and grow as well! As one long-time catechist put it, “I learn so much from the children!” We provide you with training, materials, and support. Classes are offered Sunday mornings and Monday afternoons. If interested or for more information,  contact
Melinda Miramontes or Joyce Teixeira at 524-7421.

Our Lady of Guadalupe

Most Reverend Stephen E. Blaire, Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Stockton, invites the community to the 36th annual diocesan celebration in honor of Our Lady of Guadalupe on Sunday, December 4th, 2016.

Mass is at 2:15 PM under the overpass on the parking lot of Sutter and Washington Streets.
Please join Bishop Blaire at this encounter of faith where we call upon Our Lady of Guadalupe to pray for us and ask her intercession for our brothers and sisters who suffer daily especially the effects of poverty and violence. For information contact the Office of Hispanic Ministry at (209) 466-0636.

Junior High Catechist Needed!

NEVER leave any valuable items in your car that can be seen. If you’re going to leave something in the trunk or other areas that are out of sight, place them there before you arrive. There are people who watch and wait for any opportunity to break into cars. Our security cameras are good, but they can’t stop a break-in. Also, please don’t leave bicycles parked without locking them. Purses, bags, and backpacks should never be left unattended-even while going to communion. Sadly, there are people who look for opportunities. Don’t be a victim!

THE PRECEPTS
5 “You shall help to provide for the needs of the Church" means that the faithful are obliged to assist with the material needs of the Church, each according to his own ability.
