October 8-9, 2016

Thanks to the many volunteers who will be involved with the South Oakland Shelter in the days ahead, especially to those for whom this is the first time. It takes a lot to step outside our familiar routines. I know that you will find yourselves enriched by this experience.

Next Saturday, October 15 at 3:00 pm the Knights of Columbus invite you to pray the rosary in honor of Our Lady of Fatima. In case of rain, we'll move inside. Come and bring members of your family with you.

From the Archdiocese, regard adult confirmations: "there will be a change in the Celebration of Adult Confirmation at the Cathedral this year. Usually the celebration takes place on the feast of Christ the King. However, because the Synod is taking place the same weekend, this year the celebration will take place November 6 at 11:00 a.m." I mention this because I occasionally encounter parishioners who have not yet been confirmed. Please contact me if you would like to avail yourself of the opportunity to receive this sacrament.

Finally, our small but devoted "Forty Days for Life" group continue to meet at Evergreen Road to pray. You are invited to come; we can use the parking lot north of the access road by Tapestry Banquet. Please park along the southern border of the lot.
