Dear Parishioners,

As was announced at the Masses last weekend, on Saturday, July 18, Mr. Odon Cuevas, the grandfather of Father Alberto, died after a long and full life. As Christians, we face death with an entirely different perspective because Jesus died, was raised, and has promised to prepare places for us and take us to himself. With St. Paul, we know that “Death is swallowed up in victory” and has lost its “sting” because of the victory of Jesus (1 Corinthians 15:55-57). Yet, even though we face death with hope and inner peace, we rightly grieve at the loss of those we love. Tears shed are a tribute to our family members and friends who have died. Please join with me in praying for Father Alberto and his family at this time of their grief.

With great pleasure, I want to announce that we have hired a new Director of Religious Education for our parish. Please see the separate announcement which gives some information about Doctor Marc Gonzalez. We are blessed to have a man of deep faith with the commitment, training and experience to help build on the wonderful legacy of religious education that this parish has enjoyed under the leadership of our prior DRE, Dana Couso, and our RE staff and catechists. Let me take this opportunity to express my commendation and admiration for our Religious Education staff who have served in these past months while the Director’s position was vacant. They carried extra heavy burdens and we can be proud of the job they did. THANK YOU!

Please put the dates of our Parish BBQ, September 18-20, in your calendars. In the coming days you should receive a letter from me with our BBQ raffle tickets. The raffle is a key component of the BBQ, so exercise your “inner salesman or saleswoman” and “cast your nets” far and wide among family, friends, co-workers and acquaintances to sell as many books as you can. Please contact the Pastoral Center for additional books of tickets.

May Jesus, who fed the hungry multitude, nourish our spirits! May Mary, our Lady of Perpetual Help, pray for us!

Fr. Craig
