27th Sunday in Ordinary Time - Respect Life Sunday - October 3-4, 2009

RESPECT LIFE – WE PRAY – God of compassion and patient love, be with all who are afraid and give them the courage of the Gospel of life.  Be with all mothers, especially those who are young or alone, beaten or addicted.  Heal their broken hearts and seal them with Your love.  Be with all children, those who are yet unborn, those who are tiny and frail. Cradle them in Your love. Be with all fathers, especially those who are young and confused, angry or afraid.  Give them strength and wisdom and heal them with Your love.  We ask this through Christ our Lord.  Amen                                                                                                        (Rev. James Moronery) 



Today’s second collection is for St. Victor’s Development Fund, which assists with the never-ending repairs and projects on the parish grounds.  Thank you for your support.

Jump Into Our Pool

Did you know that you can join the diocese of San Jose Pooled Income Fund?  You can earn a nice income, avoid capital gains taxes and nail down a tax deduction by doing this. When you no longer need the income, your gift can go directly to St. Victor’s Parish.

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



CM is looking for those who are interested in sharing their faith, time and talents with our students.  We are looking for teachers for the Wednesday program for 4th, 5th & 6th Sacrament and 5th Grade. Training will be done by the CM Office.  As always, there are guidelines that need to be followed. Please prayerfully consider this most important ministry. For more information, please leave a message for Anne in the CM Office @ 251-0165.



Our parishioners are asked to join other Catholics around the world from October 2nd-12th for an International Week of Prayer and Fasting.  Although we live in uncertain times, many graces are also flowing.  We appear to be surrounded by critical events that impact many families. The heavenly weapons to prevent disasters, wars and degeneration are the Eucharist and the Rosary.  Suggestions – pray the Rosary daily, recite the Divine Mercy Chaplet, attend daily Mass and/or a Holy Hour, fast (from food, TV, shopping), or hold a Prayer Service or Rosary at your home with a group. 

Join St. Victor’s Lay Carmelites for a ROSARY, in conjunction with America Needs Fatima, on Saturday, October 10th, at 12:00 noon at 2803 Glauser Dr.  Please see the flyer in this week’s Sunday Bulletin.



Friday Night BINGO - October 7th, November 6th and December 4th.  Please see today’s BINGO insert for all the details.
