Ascension   May 28, 2017

Matthew 28:20
And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age 
New Revised Standard Version, copyright 1989, by the National Council of the Churches of Christ in the United States.

The message on Ascension Sunday in the Gospel is, to me, beyond what I can put into words alone.  Time, space, eternity, God in us, with us.... It brings back memories of my childhood when I would lie on the grass and stare into the sky, day or night, and wonder how it all "is", how it all fits together.  

God is beyond our understanding, but the promises of Jesus and the commandment to love as we are loved gives us hope each and every day.  Blessings abound and surround us!

Our Kairos team will be working this weekend in the prison.  Let us all pray for them and their ministry.

So you can't go to Tijuana this summer to help build houses...?  You can still be a part of the "team" by donating funds to help them buy their building supplies and the materials needed for the programs for women and children. Jump on board!!!

During these summer months, Saint Vincent de Paul continues to be the saving hands and hearts to many of our community who are in need of the basics of life.  Please continue to donate food and funds to them so that we all support this incredible outreach of our parish.

Music Ministry

Dear Music Ministers!
YES, we have rehearsal tonight, thursday at 7:30 pm. 

Confirmation Mass is this Sunday, May 28th at 2 pm.
          Please come to sing this Mass at 2 pm Sunday.  If you have to choose only one Mass this weekend, I prefer that you come to confirmation!
          We need full choir and "orchestra"!  Call time for choir is 1:15 pm that day.

Our Summer break from rehearsals begins next week.  Music will be in dropbox each week, the Music Ministry Update will be mailed to you each week.  Come sing at Mass this summer whenever you are in town.
Happy Sunny Summer to all! Most importantly, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your incredible dedication and service to our community all year long.  You are truly blessed and I could not want a better team of musicians to work with!  Hugs and thanks - Kathleen

Important - Note on the church copies of Spirit and Song - they need to be returned to the choir room after Mass.  Please do not take them home, so that they are available for all musicians to use at Mass.

During the summer - music ministers please meet 30 minutes before Mass.
Link to Spirit and Song List for this weekend.
You may download and print your own music to prepare for the weekend in our  DropBox .  Email me if you have difficulties accessing our music.
