Pastor's Update


Fr. Arnold Zamora

April 16, 2021

Things you may want to know this week.

1.

Happy Feast Day! Tomorrow is the feast day of the patron of our parish, St. Robert de Turlande. Most people and even long-time parishioners think that our parish is named after St. Robert Bellarmine who is a better-known saint than Saint Robert de Turlande. Our patron, St. Robert de Turlande was a French Catholic priest and professed member of the Order of Saint Benedictine (O.S.B.) He is best known for the establishment of the Benedictine convent of La Chaise-Dieu (“Home of God”) and for his total commitment to the poor. St. Robert de Turlande, pray for us.

2.

Deacon Rusty Duffey showed me yesterday the only image of St. Robert de Turlande that we have. It is a stained glass located by the old St. Mary’s chapel to the right side of the church. The image shows St. Robert holding a church as he is officially called Saint Robert de Turlande of the House of God. Check the area and you will also see the stained-glass images of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Saint Joseph, Saint Francis and St. Patrick.

3.

Parishioner Puchi Carreon de Ricco pointed out to me the missing fingers of the Sacred Heart of Jesus statue and the chopped ring finger of the statue of the Blessed Mother in the little shrines inside the church. Hopefully, we can find somebody to fix this.
Thanks to Tony Reid for fixing our church front doors by replacing and tightening the screws. There are more little things in the church that need to be fixed and we are addressing them one by one.

4.

We welcome the newest member of our Catholic church who will be baptized tomorrow here at our church: James Alan Paping and Joseph Kirk Paping. Congratulations to their parents Charles and Erika Paping.

5.

Thanks Early this week, The State of California judicial rulings lifted all capacity limits on worship services, but continues to strongly recommend that houses of worship follow guidelines of the tier of the county in which they are located. The Archbishop sent a text message to all the priests telling us to continue to adhere to the safety protocols of the Archdiocese with one modification: base the number of people inside according to the 6 foot rule, rather an absolute number of percentage capacity. That is, each household should be 6 feet apart.

Fr. Arnold

Dear parishioners and friends of St. Roberts,

Life is never about how bravely we struggle.

Oftentimes, it can be about how willingly we surrender and allow God to embrace us just as we are.

Do remember that every new day offers a New Journey to Live.

Always Wake Up with a Thankful Heart & receive every Blessing with a Smile.


Blessings,
Fr. Arnold
