The Catholic Communication Campaign Collection will support THE VALLEY CATHOLIC operating budget for the fiscal year.  The Diocese of San Jose benefits greatly from this newspaper, providing a great deal of news about our local Church as well as news of the national and universal Church. THE VALLEY CATHOLIC is the Bishop’s primary vehicle for communicating important Catholic news to the people of this Diocese. This newspaper operates with a very minimal staff that accomplishes multiple tasks and the newspaper itself is at limited pages and frequency.  It receives no subsidy and relies totally on funds from subscriptions and advertising sales. Any questions regarding subscriptions, please call the Rectory Office @ 251-7055.  Please be generous.  [For information regarding television, radio, newspapers, magazines and Internet programs supported by the Catholic Communications Campaign, please go to .



The children who recently received their First Holy Communion look to you and follow what you do before and after receiving the Eucharist.  They know this is a special and wonderful time and that folding their hands near their heart is a way of showing how special this sacrament is to them.  Because it is so new, sometimes they forget what they are supposed to do and they look to others around them to see what they are doing.  Help us model a respectful and reverent posture when receiving Communion, showing the children that we are aware of the awesome love God has shown in giving His Son to us through the Eucharist.


Don’t Forget Dad!

Father’s Day is rapidly approaching – Sunday, June 21st.  Father’s Day Spiritual Bouquet Cards are available on the tables as you leave Church today.  These cards are wonderful for remembering fathers everywhere – living or deceased – on Father’s Day and the remainder of June.  Please place the completed envelope in the collection basket or take it to the parish office by noon on Friday, June 19th.


PLEASE NOTE:  Beginning Sunday, June 21st, there will be NO Sunday 5:00 P.M. Mass during the summer.

This Mass will resume on September 13th.
