Dear Parishioners,

Some seven years ago I arrived at St. Robert’s after serious spinal surgery. I have experienced the friendship and support of Father Ring and my brother priests; the encouragement of our Irish Presentation Sisters; the affirmation of our Parish Staff; the dedication of our Parish School Principal and Faculty; the fidelity of our CCD teachers; the cheerfulness of our Parochial and Religious Education (CCD) kids; the devotion and good humor of our organizations (RENEW) and parishioners. Together you have put me back on my feet. Now I am asked to go to St. Raymond’s Parish in Menlo Park (another Parochial School; another CCD) I will succeed the Associate Pastor there, Fr. Ed. Bohnert-the new Pastor of St. Veronica's. I go to my new assignment with the confidence your love and prayers have given me. Sometime in September we’ll have a chance to say "Goodbye." For now;


Father Morris


Dear Parishioners,

Each year, on July 1st, new assignments take place for many priests here in the Archdiocese. New pastors or administrators are going to twelve parishes, and many associate pastors ("parochial vicars") such as myself will be re-assigned.

Like Fr. Morris, I have received a new assignment, and I will be moving to St. Veronica’s in South San Francisco.

I came here three years ago, and have found St. Robert’s to be a wonderful parish. I really do count myself blessed to have been here mainly because of you, the people of St. Robert’s.

A verse from the Bible frequently comes to mind when I consider God’s goodness to me:

"You give marvelous comrades to me,
the faithful who dwell in your land."

Well, the time has come to say goodbye to you "marvelous comrades" as I move to St. Veronica’s. I won’t be very far away, so I’m sure I’ll see some of you around town. And though I’ve loved being here, I am excited about my new assignment, having spent a year at St. Veronica’s when I was a seminarian on my "pastoral year" in 1992-93.

Fr. Morris and I expect to be back to attend St. Robert’s Parish Picnic on September 7, when many people who are away on vacation will be back in town. God bless you.

Fr. Mark Taheny



Once again we will have our annual contest for the Parish bulletin from a vacation church you worshiped at during the summer. The prize goes to the family who submits one from the farthest point from St. Robert’s. As you know, I enjoy seeing what is happening at other parishes, so bring them to me even if your vacation destination is the Russian River or Santa Cruz.

Father Ring



The 5:30 p.m. Mass is in need of ushers. Call Mike Salvato.
