Second Collection—This Weekend
The annual collection to support the retirement fund of the aged and infirm priests of the Diocese of Monterey will take place this weekend. The care of the older priests of the diocese has been admirable. Most are still well and active. Those who died have gone to heaven with dignity and with proper care. The commu- nity is thanked for its long-standing part in this ministry to the priests.


Catholic art calendars are now available for 2017. Please take one per family. Please pray for the benefactors who have supplied them to the parish. Baskets are placed by the calendars in case you wish to make a free-will offering toward the missions in the United States.

Much Appreciation and Gratitude

The Friars and staff wish to express their prayerful gratitude for the many varied gifts that have been received in the friary. Food, beverages, decorations and hosted gatherings have been abundant in our lives. May God give you His rich reward for your goodness. Many blessings in the New Year.

Bassinette for Life

The bassinette will be removed after this weekend. The parishioners and visitors are thanked for their marvel- ous generosity. It is a challenge for many single moth- ers in our day to care for their infants and children.

Need for Food After Christmas

Many agencies have cared for the needy leading up to Christmas. Now there will be a lull in support. If you have foodstuffs left over that you won’t use, then drop these non-perishable items in the hutch at the entrance of the church. We will get the food to the Five Cities’ Christian Women’s food distribution center. If you are interested in donating your time to the effort (1 or 2 afternoons per month), please call the rectory.
