Reclaiming Christ's Mission Together

imageOver the next few months, we will be involved in conducting our Reclaiming Christ's Mission Together Capital Campaign here at St Francis of Assisi Parish. In order to fully explain the magnitude of this endeavor, we will be hosting educational receptions designed to raise awareness about this project and to provide families with opportunities to ask questions. Invitations to attend a reception were recently mailed to all registered parishioners. The dates of the next reception is September 30th at 6:30 PM in the John Paul II center. I would like to see every parishioner attend one of these receptions. This is YOUR parish, and I am asking YOU to get involved. Thank you for your consideration and support of this historic endeavor! You will hear more about the campaign in the coming weeks.

Rev. Ismael Gutierrez, Parochial Administrator

Thank You from Respect Life Ministry

Respect Life Committee thanks the parishioners for taking the walk through the Journey of Life. We want to thank Father Ismael for suggesting that our committee create the video which was shown as Father's homily. It celebrated St. Francis and reverence for God's creation highlighting how Catholics effect this respect for Life through the Sacraments. Parishioners can bring unwrapped baby gifts to church on Sundays in October to continue the Respect Life theme. They will be offered to St. Vincent de Paul and Birthright families.

Diocese of Oakland Capital Campaign – Reclaiming Christ's Mission Together

“As a diocesan faith family, we celebrate the recent appointment of our fifth Bishop, the Most Reverend Michael Barber. After much thought, prayer, and consultation with his priests and other advisors, Bishop Barber has made the decision to lead the faithful in an ambitious endeavor to provide the means for the Diocese to strengthen and stabilize the Diocese's long-term financial footing, increase funding for parish projects and needs, and to demonstrate sound stewardship over the gifts the Diocese has already received.

The faithful of the Diocese are being invited to join Bishop Barber in the Reclaiming Christ's Mission Together Campaign. The funds raised in this first-ever diocesan wide campaign will generate the financial means needed to further our mission throughout the East Bay, and secure a solid financial foundation for our future.  Through this effort, we can renew, strengthen, sustain and expand ministries to those who are most in need, building a foundation for a continued vibrancy in the local Church for generations to come.

We know this is an ambitious undertaking, however, we believe it is attainable through the
support of all members of our diocesan family. As stated by Bishop Barber: "If we are filled with the Holy Spirit as we minister, as we bring our message, our people will respond."

St. Francis of Assisi Church will be hosting several receptions for parishioners to come and learn all about this important effort and how it will benefit the Diocese and our own parish. More information will be provided over the next several weeks.
