Last weekend, many of our Parishioners made a pledge and initial payment for this years PSA Campaign “We Are One”, which helps support diocesan ministries in many ways. If you have not made yours, please prayerfully consider the amount of your pledge. Envelopes are found in the pews and may be dropped off in the reception office today! Together we are united in the Catholic faith knowing that through your generosity many people will be served. Thank you for your participation in the life of Santiago de Compostela and the Diocese of Orange.

My Dearest Parish Family,
God be with us always.
On behalf of our Parish Family and the families of the bereaved who participated at the Mass of Remembrance last Sunday; our sincere gratitude and appreciation to our Bereavement Ministers and all the other ministries who made the celebration meaningful, heartfelt and memorable. We also thank God and praise Him for providing us the opportunity to come together at the Eucharist and receive His grace of comfort, strength and hope. I hope we can include pictures here of this Annual Celebration.
To those who were present at the three Masses I presided, Saturday 5pm, Sunday 10:15 am and 12:00 pm; I would like to ask if they have been faithful to the commitment to practice charity by committing to pray for another person. I believe this is one way by which we can be intentional in our task of building our Parish Family-Community as one united by the faith, hope and love we profess. This something we should start to practice and to sustain every time we gather for the Lord’s Day.
We are moving fast towards the end of our Liturgical Year as we have two weekends to go before Christ the King followed by the First Sunday of Advent. We have however a number of potential grace filled moments when the First Class Relic of St. Pope John Paul II – the Great will visit us for Veneration. While it is laudable to pray from the heart sight unseen, our Mother Church allows us these moments when we can experience intimately, closely and meaningfully articles for veneration to inspire us to be better disciples and stewards of the Good News.
We are also beginning this Advent our participation the Dynamic Catholic Parish Initiative. May I suggest that we brush up on our books from the Dynamic Catholic like Rediscovering Jesus, Resisting Happiness and the Four Signs of A Dynamic Catholic. Doing this will helps us begin this journey with the Dynamic Catholic well prepared by having a similar perspective.
This is the Blessing and Challenge that we will be facing as a Parish Family this coming Liturgical Year. Once again may I remind us of what we recite from the heart during the Stewardship Prayer. During the Pilgrimage I am leading this will be the intention I will hold close to my heart. God bless and take care.
Love and prayers,
Fr. Thomas Paul K. Naval
