Dear Parishioners,

The Parish golf tournament sponsored by the Men’s Club was a great success. Thank you to all who worked so hard to make it possible. The dinner after the tournament was the best ever.

First Communion for 130 children takes place this Saturday and next Saturday. Congratulations to the children and thank you to their teachers in the school and in the Religious Education Program who have worked so hard to help the parents prepare their children for this important step in their Christian life. So often we can forget that on the day of a child’s baptism the parents promise to do all within their power to pass the Faith on to the child.

We are getting close to fulfilling our assessment for the Annual Appeal of the Archbishop ($69,000). Any money we receive above the assessment will be returned to the Parish. We will use it to help with the renovation of the wall in the sanctuary. All those who have not yet contributed should receive a letter from me this weekend asking you to join the four hundred plus families who have already given. If you are not on the Parish mailing list, please phone the Parish Office for information about the Appeal.

Fr. Ring

We pray for the ill: Blake Interdonato, IIlar Schoenstein, Don Landers, Tony Coogan, Koret Koelman, Terry McLeod, Adela Florez, Ana Cosgaya, Peter Capodonicco, Rosemary McHale, Arthur Candia, Margarita Velez, and Sandra Dill.

We pray for the repose of the souls of Larry Grech, father of Carmen Huddleston’s; and Georgia Elkington and Mrs. Lena Rosso. We offer our sympathy to their families.

For the children who come to the Lord’s Table for the first time, for their parents and teachers. May they be filled with joy and the Holy Spirit.

We pray...That the Holy Spirit will grant every mother the grace she needs to live out this most holy calling.

a program for couples in troubled marriages

is starting another session on June 12-14 1998 at the Vallombrosa Retreat Center. A team of three couples and a Catholic priest present the weekend and the six follow-up sessions over the next 90 days; all couples who have mentally or physically packed their bags are welcome. Don’t let your marriage and family slip away without giving this program a chance. Thousands of couples have been able to rediscover and return to the sacred covenant and sacramental promise and have restored the family. Call Ed and Peg Gleason at (415) 221-4269 for more information or brochures.
