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. For more information, please contact 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, email@example.com or call/text 510-504-4784.
Faith Formation Classes: All children are invited to participate in faith formation classes. Your child do not need to be in sacramental preparation to participate. Please fill out the Faith Formation Registration, here is the direct link: you can find it here on our website. Please complete the form and return it to Linda in the office.
Young adults: Young adults of our parish continue to meet Mondays around 7:30 p.m. For more information, please contact Richard Kearney at firstname.lastname@example.org
