Pastor's Update


Fr. Arnold Zamora

February 26, 2021

Things you may want to know this week.

1.

Better days are here and we hope they keep coming. We are now in the red tier and more people are getting vaccinated. So, we are bringing back the Lenten Stations of the Cross in our church on all Fridays of Lent starting this Friday, March 5 at 6PM. It is also the first Friday of the month and we will have our Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament after the 8:30AM mass. The First Saturday is our Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. We consecrate ourselves and our parish to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

2.

This weekend we are launching our Archdiocesan Annual Appeal (AAA) 2021 with the theme “For the needy will never be forgotten; nor will the hope of the afflicted ever fade.” I will be preaching in all the masses. Here’s some good news: We have completed our AAA goal for 2020 and our goal for this 2021 has been reduced. This year, let us strive not just to reach our goal but to exceed it because the surplus money is given back to the parish for our own use.

3.

The Archdiocese of San Francisco has established a Mental Health Ministry with the hope that every parish can have its own Mental Health Ministry. This ministry is not intended to replace professional or clinical services and does not provide professional care. It is more of a spiritual companionship and a practical support for the patient and their families. To learn more about this, join the Online Zoom Meeting on Thursday, March 11th from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM. Please email Sr. Sheral at marsheral@gmail.com.

4

Another new month is starting this Monday. March is Women’s History Month. It is an annual declared month that highlights the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society. We recognize the contributions of the many women working in our parish serving in different committees and ministries.

WOMAN MEANS:
W - WONDERFUL MOTHER.
O - OUTSTANDING FRIEND.
M - MARVELOUS DAUGHTER.
A - ADORABLE SISTER.
N - NICEST GIFT TO MEN FROM GOD.

Rock the world ladies!
A salute to women!.

Fr. Arnold

FAZnotes


Fr. Arnold Zamora

(Father Arnold Zamora)

February 26, 2021

Dear parishioners and friends of St. Roberts,

Learn to make the most of life.
Lose no happy days.
Time can never bring back what was swept away.
Leave no tender words unsaid.
Do care while life lasts no matter how many times we fall.
We can live victoriously.
God's favor is on your side.

If we have reasons for caring for someone, then we are using our minds.
If we care for someone with no reason, then we are using our hearts.
Because everything looks so beautiful to you when your heart is beautiful...

Fr. Arnold
