PARISH PICNIC
With regret, due to all the requirements 
to prevent the spread of the COVID 19 virus,
THE PARISH PICNIC will not be held this year.
 
Due to the requirements to prevent the spread of COVID 19, SOS (South Oakland Shelter) made the decision that churches will not host the temporarily homeless until October 31.  Through that time they will be sheltering people in hotels.  We will have a conversation with SOS in August to see how we might help in ways other than hosting our guests in our hall.
 
 
This would be a good time to study the 2018 USCCB document on Racism:

Fr. Jeff was supposed to take one final trip to Malta to assist the friars in their chapter and election of new leadership.  COVID-19 has made international travel impossible.  He will be assisting at their Chapter via ZOOM during the week of July 20-24.
Fr. Jeff will be gone this week, taking a little R and R.
Tuesday through Saturday (July 7-11)
