We have successfully launched our newest form of communication, My Parish App. As a special gift to each parish from the Diocese of Orange for their 40th Anniversary, we have personalized our own app to fit the needs of our parishioners. The more features we explore, the more excited we become to bring you this powerful tool. You will receive notifications on your smart phones for upcoming events, be able to access our parish calendar, even send an email to any of the staff or clergy. You can also tailor the app to keep track of your Confession and Mass Schedules. Click on the image to download your app today, and select Santiago de Compostela as you parish. Lets stay connected!
17 September 2017
My Dearest Parish Family,
God be with us always. A Blessed and Happy Catechetical Sunday to all our Catechists present and past. We are all grateful for your generous gift of your time, knowledge and talents to nurture, enrich and strengthen the faith life of our parish through the different stages of Religious and Spiritual Formation.
By the time you read this, my nephew Wataru will now be married to his fiancé Naoko. Yes, I am in Japan attending their wedding and spending precious time with my eldest sister, Elizabeth, and her growing family. It has been more than three decades when I last had the opportunity to be with them at length.
My mother always told us “charity begins at home,” so earlier this year I asked permission from Bishop Vann to attend the wedding and to be with their family for 10 days. I was also granted permission to spend time with my father, who will be turning 82 on September 25th.
While engaging in this, I will be away from my spiritual family – the parish family of Santiago de Compostela. I will miss you all! However, I will keep you in my prayers and I trust in God that things will be under control in the Parish.
September is the “hyper-drive” month of our parish’s last quarter in terms of the activities in religious education and other formation programs such as; Bible Study in English and Spanish, Ignatian Spirituality, CMF, etc. of pastoral life and discipleship. These activities also provide us ample opportunities for growth in our spiritual life, discipleship, stewardship and relationship with God.
We are also in the last month of preparation for our Festival Santiago – an opportunity to build our fellowship and do our part to raise funds in support of our parish family. We are grateful to all those who have been good stewards in sharing their gifts for the success of this parish event. It is only when we live in an intentional spirit of dynamic charity that we can have an experience of the Kingdom of God being present among us. Forgiveness is the perfect expression of this charity as the Gospel of this weekend reminds us. God bless and take care.
Love and prayers,
