The parish Social Justice Ministry is back up and running! In addition to our current ministries of the St. Vincent de Paul food pantry and Elizabeth House next door, we are now collaborating with the Faith in Action ministry already active at St. Columba’s Parish. We have begun to meet with them monthly over Zoom. We are also joining them in their in-person actions, like their Oakland Ceasefire Friday Night Walks. On Thursday the 27th we are meeting by Zoom from 7-8 pm to learn about other areas of focus. Please come! To get more information, please contact Courtenay at the parish office.
Devotional Groups: We hold devotional prayer on Zoom – Holy Rosary, Divine Mercy, Stations of the Cross, Litany of Loretto and Night Prayers held at 9:00 PM, around the time people try to get ready for sleep. The duration of the prayers will be around ten minutes. Night Prayers could help one to calm the mind, have a clear conscience, and help to obtain a calm and peaceful sleep. It is said, “a good laugh and a good sleep are the two best cures for many things.” If you are interested, please send an email to April, firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text 510-504-4784.
Spiritual Book Club: If you would like to join the book club, kindly contact the parish office or Father Augustine.

Broader Community Events
WINGS is a faith enhancement group that encourages spiritual growth through prayer, scripture study, spiritual exploration, life sharing and community. Women in all stages of life come together weekly to grow in their relationship with God and each other and learn to recognize their own spiritual gifts. Affirmed and strengthened by the support of their Christian sisters and the Holy Spirit, the women of WINGS can better share God’s love in the wider community of family, parish, neighborhood and world. Rather than being a service-oriented organization, the focus of WINGS is building up the Body of Christ by meeting its members’ spiritual needs. We usually meet at St. Theresa’s Parish but at this time are meeting virtually on Zoom. WINGS Winter 2022 brochure final for a copy of the current speakers program.
