Almighty and Merciful God, we, your children who are in deep fear of what tomorrow might bring upon us are on bended knees, asking for your forgiveness and help at this time that our world is infested with coronavirus. Heavenly Father, please save us from this dreaded illness.
Mary, our beloved Mother, We fly to your patronage today as your beloved children. We ask you to intercede for us with your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, as you did at the wedding in Cana.
Pray for us, loving Mother, and gain for our world and our nation, and for all our families and loved ones, the protection of your holy angels, that we may be spared from the worst of this illness coronavirus.
For those already afflicted, we ask you to obtain the grace of healing and deliverance. Hear the cries of those who are vulnerable and fearful, wipe away their tears, and help them to trust.
In this time of trial and testing, teach all of us to love one another and to be patient and kind with one another.
Help us to be more close to Jesus, your Son, and our savior.
We come to you with confidence, our compassionate mother, knowing that you will always intercede for us your children. You are the health of the sick and the cause of our joy. Shelter us under the mantle of your protection; keep us in the embrace of your arms.

Dear Parish Family!

ALLELUIA! Happy Easter!  

Our Savior, Jesus Christ, has conquered death and everything that diminishes the Divine life in us and among us. His resurrection from the dead is not simply a fact of history to be retold at Easter. It is a mystery to be lived every day. As Christians, we are just as inspired by the presence of Jesus among us as those who first saw the empty tomb.

Like them, we know that Jesus is not found among the dead. He lives among us in the community gathered to celebrate the Eucharist. He lives in the Gospel proclaimed by word and deed. Through the Sacraments of the Church, he gathers disciples, heals the sick, reconciles sinners, and calls us to service. In the Church’s outreach, it is the hand of Jesus that lifts up the poor, feeds the hungry, shelters the homeless and visits the confined. In these ways, and many others, we give witness to the mystery of Jesus living among us. Indeed, we become the Body of Christ for the world.

This great Easter mystery cannot be lived in isolation. It requires the bonds of community to support us and to challenge us. Every Sunday the Church gathers as the Body of Christ at the table of God’s Word and celebration of the Eucharist, the source and summit of our life in Christ. We gather every Sunday as active participants in the life of our Resurrected Lord.

As parishioners and friends of The Catholic Communities of Saint Junipero Serra and Our Lady of the Snows, the Clergy, Staff, Finance Council members, Pastoral Council members, and Parish Leadership Team (PLT) and I invite you to be the Body of Christ for the world with us.

I wish you blessings in this Easter season and every day. I pray that our Risen Lord will be revealed to you in Word and Sacrament, in the love of family, friends, and Church, in the witness of charity and holiness of life.

I sincerely wish you, your family, and your loved ones, a very blessed Easter celebration today and every day!

Fr. Joachim

Staying Connected

Del Escritorio del Pastor

Querida Familia Parroquial:

¡ALELUYA! ¡Felices Pascuas!

Nuestro Salvador, Jesucristo, ha vencido la muerte y todo lo que menoscaba la vida Divina en nosotros y entre nosotros. Su resurrección de entre los muertos no es simplemente un hecho histórico que se vuelve a contar en Pascua. Es un misterio para vivir todos los días. Como cristianos, estamos tan inspirados por la presencia de Jesús entre nosotros como aquellos que vieron por primera vez la tumba vacía.

Como ellos, sabemos que Jesús no se encuentra entre los muertos. Vive entre nosotros en la comunidad reunida para celebrar la Eucaristía. Vive en el Evangelio proclamado de palabra y obra. A través de los sacramentos de la Iglesia, reúne discípulos, sana a los enfermos, reconcilia a los pecadores y nos llama al servicio. En el alcance de la Iglesia, es la mano de Jesús la que levanta a los pobres, alimenta a los hambrientos, protege a los desamparados y visita a los confinados. De esta forma, y ​​de muchas otras, damos testimonio del misterio de Jesús que vive entre nosotros. De hecho, nos convertimos en el Cuerpo de Cristo para el mundo.

Este gran misterio Pascual no se puede vivir de forma aislada. Requiere los lazos de la comunidad para apoyarnos y desafiarnos. Todos los domingos, la Iglesia se reúne como Cuerpo de Cristo en la mesa de la Palabra de Dios y la celebración de la Eucaristía, fuente y cumbre de nuestra vida en Cristo. Nos reunimos todos los domingos como participantes activos en la vida de nuestro Señor resucitado.

Como feligreses y amigos de Las Comunidades Católicas de San Junípero Serra y Nuestra Señora de las Nieves, el Clero, el Personal, los miembros del Consejo de Finanzas, los miembros del Consejo Pastoral, el Equipo de Liderazgo Parroquial (PLT) y yo los invitamos a ser el Cuerpo de Cristo  para el mundo.

Les deseo bendiciones en esta temporada de Pascua y todos los días. Oro para que nuestro Señor Resucitado se les revele en la Palabra y el Sacramento, en el amor de la familia, los amigos y la Iglesia, en el testimonio de caridad y santidad de vida.

¡Les deseo sinceramente a ustedes, a su familia y a sus seres queridos, una celebración de Pascua muy bendecida hoy y todos los días!
P. Joachim
