Stained Glass

Ascension of the Lord - May 23-24, 2009

The golden gates are lifted up, the doors are opened wide the King of Glory is gone up, unto His Father’s side.


“You who dwell in liberty bought by their passing recall: it is your son, your daughter, your father, your mother, your brother or sister buried here.  Pause for a moment, forgetting your business and occupation to offer a prayer, a praise, a tear.”      V. S. Owens

PRAYER FOR MEMORIAL DAY: Lord Jesus Christ, today we honor the memory of those men and women who gave their all for the cause of freedom.  They worked, fought and died for the heritage of freedom, brotherhood and honor that they have passed on to us.  Help us to recall that You gave up Your life for the true freedom of all human beings.  Teach us the meaning of peace and the real battle that must take place in ourselves before it will be won in families and nations.  Make us keep Your memory in our celebration of communion and pray for the peace and freedom in today’s world. Amen.

A Charitable Trust Can Increase Your Income!

The IRS allows you to use a charitable trust to increase your income and reduce your taxes.  The trust is especially useful for highly appreciated assets (real estate or securities).  The trust can also be used to help loved ones with income after you have gone, but keep the principal from being spent unwisely.

If you want to know more about this, the Diocese can provide free assistance.  Call Robert Serventi @ 983-0168, or write to him at: The Chancery, 1150 North First Street, Suite 100 , San Jose , CA 95112-4966 .


Vacation Bible Camp (VBC) will be held on July 6th-10th.  We are in need of a lot of volunteers to be able to have this special program for our children.  If you are able to help or have any questions, please call the Parish Office @ 251-7055. 



You are invited to come to the meeting next Sunday, May 31st, from 2:30-4:30 P.M. in the small room of the parish center for information regarding this pilgrimage ( Venice , Bled, Opatia, Plitvice Lakes , Medjugorge, Dubrovnik , Split and Zagreb ). For any further questions, please contact Father Lim @ 928-1633.
