Dear Parishioners,

Thank you to all the men of the Parish who have helped to build a retaining wall in the middle school yard. Because of the storms, the hillside to the west was sliding and a major task resulted. Special thanks to Dan Murtaugh, Ron Mondfrans and Terry Smerdel, who made it possible to hold down the considerable cost of this project.

Congratulations to Father Thomas Moran, who was assigned to us for a few years as a priest in residence. He has been appointed Pastor of St. Charles in San Carlos. This reminds me to tell you that Fr. Padazinski continues to work on his Doctorate in Canon Law in Rome and that Father Tarantino is now the Pastor of St. Hilary’s in Tiburon.

In the very near future, we hope to begin work on the back wall of the sanctuary of our church. As you can see in the model that is displayed in the vestibule of the Church, eight windows will be installed - four to each side of the marble. If you would like to have a window dedicated in memory of someone you love, please contact me. We are asking $2,500 as a donation for each window. We will use the $5,000 that was pledged above our Parish goal for the Annual Appeal to dedicate two of the windows in honor of the Sisters of St. Francis, who first staffed our Parish school and in honor of the Sisters of the Presentation, who continue to serve our Parish. If you would like to make a donation of any amount of $100 or more toward the construction of the new wall in memory of someone or in thanksgiving for God’s blessing to your family, please send a check to the Parish specifying the name to be listed on the memorial plaque that will be placed on the side wall of the sanctuary. The total cost of the project will be in the area of $65,000.

Our second annual contest for the parish bulleting from the furthest away parish begins again. Last year, Germany was the place with Malta second. A prize will be given - symbolic!

Fr. Vincent Ring



We have heard the Lord’s command, "Love your neighbor as yourself." In our linked and limited world, loving our neighbor has global implications. In faith, we know our neighbors live in Rwanda and Sudan, in East Timor and China, in Bosnia and Central America, as well as across our country and next door. Baptism, confirmation and continuing participation in the body of Christ calls us to action for "the least among us" without regard for boundaries or borders.



Seton Medical Center is offering two eight-week sessions for individuals who have recently experienced the death of a loved one. The first series begins June 23, second series on September 1. For further information call (650) 991-6828.

Drop it either in the collection basket, in the mail, or at the Parish office. We will mail a New Parishioner Packet with information about the Parish, its organizations and groups.



If you have someone in your family or a close friend, or a neighbor who is interested in becoming a Catholic, or if you know adults who were baptized and have not received First Communion or Confirmation, why not invite them to our R.C.I.A.? Unbaptized adults are welcome also. This program will begin in September. We are accepting candidates throughout the coming months. Spread the word. Leave names and phone numbers with the Parish Office. Rusty Duffey will make contact with applicants.



As a gift of love to fathers and grandfathers still with us and those in heaven, Novena cards may be found in the vestibule of the Church. Any donations received wil be for obtaining new white vestments.
