Things you may want to know this week.

1.

LIFE MATTERS! A deanery is a cluster of parishes within the same area, and we belong to the North San Mateo Deanery consisting of All Souls Parish (SSF), Mater Dolorosa(SSF), St. Bruno(SB), St. Dunstan(Millbrae), St. Robert(SB) and St. Veronica(SSF), with Fr. Roland Dolorosa, pastor of Mater Dolorosa, as our dean. Yesterday, the priests of our deanery had a zoom meeting to discuss our priests’ spiritual and physical life, living conditions, and arrangements, as part of updating the Policy Handbook of the Archdiocese

2.

LIFE MATTERS! The First Reconciliation of the second batch from our CCD and School will take place this Saturday, September 26, 2020, at 10AM. Spiritual life absolutely matters because the spirit is the principle of life, and without it the body is lifeless. They are looking forward to receiving their First Communion so as to receive Jesus - the Way, the Truth and the Life.

3.

LIFE MATTERS! The 40 Days for Life Campaign began on September 23, praying the rosary around the world at Planned Parenthood locations. To participate, go ONLINE at 40daysforlife.com/redwoodcity or contact Mary Nunnery at mary.nunnery@hotmail.com.

4.

LIFE MATTERS! “If I have a thousand lives, I will offer them for God!” These are the dying words of the first Filipino saint, San Lorenzo Ruiz (St. Lawrence) whose feast is celebrated by the universal church every September 28. Our Fil-Am (Filipino-American) Ministry led by Al Reyes has been praying the novena and will be displaying San Lorenzo’s statue in our church this Sunday to honor this great martyr of the church.

5.

LIFE MATTERS! Happy Birthday to our vice School principal Mrs. Brijit Lopez who is celebrating her birthday this Sunday, and belated Happy Birthday to parishioner Linda Kenyon who celebrated her birthday last Tuesday, September 22. Life indeed is a gift from God and that’s the great reason to be thankful each day. There is no stage in life that does not contain lessons. As long as you follow your heart and never stop learning, you’ll grow…. not older, but wiser every day!.

Fr. Arnold

(Father Arnold Zamora)

September 25, 2020

Dear Parishioners and Friends of St. Roberts,

Each morning is a miracle of life and hope, another chance to try out our plans and to correct our mistakes, another moment to forgive, to say sorry, to say thank you, to express our care and our love.

Live life at its safest way.
Observe signs and signals.
When you are about to lose your TEMPER, remember these wise words:
"Anyone who ANGERS you, CONQUERS you."
Just Smile, life is beautiful.

GOD blesses you today and everyday!
Bless your heart for all the ways you have been kind.
Bless your hands for giving help without even thinking twice.
Bless your thoughts for knowing just the perfect thing to do.
Your good heart is a gift of love from GOD
Your humble heart & kindness surely GOD will reward.

May God bless us always!

Fr. Arnold

Sr. Sheral Marshall

Our Irish Sisters of the Presentation have retired from St.Roberts after almost 50 years of service. They have moved to Texas.

Please read our goodbye.

Our Presentation Sisters have left mid-September for San Antonio, Texas where several of their Sisters reside. They are the only ones this far west so they have been welcomed with open arms and happy to be nearer to each other.
