Things you may want to know this week.


It's Summer Time! Last Tuesday, June 21st, was the First Day of Summer known as Solstice Summer. It is the longest day and the shortest night of the calendar year. By "longest day," we mean the longest period of sunlight hours. Summer time means summer vacation. But wherever you are, be sure to take God with you, and don't forget to attend Sunday Mass - your obligation to God and his church. all Warriors fans! WE WON! Yes, I said "we" - we deserve a pat on the back since we were there for them, win or lose. Draymond Green calls his fellow players brothers - not teammates - making them family. We are all part of St. Robert's family, and when we treat each other as family, there will always be success. Now that you don't have to stress over a 7th game of the NBA Finals, you can actually enjoy listening to the special choir that GP, our music director, has put together for the 5:00p.m. Mass this Sunday.


Today is the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus which takes precedence over the Solemnity of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist that is traditionally celebrated on June 24th. It was celebrated yesterday, instead. The Funeral Mass of our longtime parishioner, John Valdez, who was one of our Lectors and a member of Saint Vincent de Paul for the past 35 years, was celebrated today. The Funeral Mass of another longtime parishioner, Mary Bourne, who did a lot of volunteer work in the parish as liturgical minister, collection counter, office receptionist and many more is on Monday, June 27, at 11 a.m. She was considered the "mother of Deacons" as she was so involved with the Deacon ministry like attending their retreats and other activities. Eternal Rest grant unto John and Mary!


Today, June 24, 2022, the U.S. Supreme Court Overturns Roe and Casey sending abortion back to states. Archbishop Cordileone writes: "It finally happened. After fifty years of patient marching, organizing and discussing, serving pregnant women in crisis, and voting, the Supreme Court has ruled our Constitution does not contain the right to kill the unborn. Missouri's Attorney General just announced that abortion is illegal there except for "medical emergency." More states will follow. Be kind to one another and to those who disagree now."

Our Grownups will have their "Spring into Summer Luncheon'' this coming Sunday, June 26th following the 11:30 a.m. Mass at the Hennessy Hall. Everyone who signed up, and gave a $15 donation will be treated to a delicious Chicken Cordon Bleu luncheon. Thanks to the group's leader, Bob Lockwood, and his working committee for putting this together.


The Northern California Renewal Coalition (Charismatic Movement) is sponsoring a day of prayer, praise and worship, and healing service tomorrow at St. Mary's Cathedral-Patrol Hall. Speakers are Fr. Aris Martin, Fr. Ben Rosado and Bro. Bo Sanchez.


Dada Gallagher, our neighbor (her house is literally behind the rectory) and once the president of St. Robert's Fil-Am ministry, celebrated her 80th Birthday last Saturday at Westin Hotel. Part of the celebration was a money dance, and the money collected was split between St. Roberts and Our Lady of Mercy, Dada's other parish. St. Robert was richer that day by $310. Thanks Dada, and belated Happy 80th Birthday!


Shout-outs! Thanks to Sandy Mangold for donating beautiful cruets for the wine and water to be used in our celebration of the Eucharist. Sr. Sheral is having a private Retreat at Mercy Center and she will be visiting us this weekend. She is actually attending the funeral this morning. Make sure you go to mass this weekend and say hello to her. Fr. Boie celebrates his birthday this Tuesday. He arrives Monday evening from his vacation in the Philippines. Happy Birthday Fr. Boie and welcome back!

Fr. Arnold

Dear parishioners and friends of St. Roberts,

Whatever the weather will be today, let your heart sing.
Let your spirit soar.

For there is so much in life to be grateful for --
There's the warmth of sunshine;
The coolness of the rain,
The quiet of evening when day is done;
and dearest of all,
the love of family & friends.

Wishing you the gentle joys of daily life,
the warm contentment of home,
the loving presence of family and friends & God's unfailing love.

Fr. Arnold

What is a synod?

A synod is a council of the Church, usually convened to decide an issue of doctrine, administration or application. The word synod is from the Greek sinodos (s???d??) meaning “assembly” or “meeting” and is similar to the Latin concilium meaning “council”. Sometimes the phrase “general synod” or “general council” refers to an ecumenical council, like the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965).
