Adoration For Lent

Jesus turned and saw them following Him and said to them,
“What are you looking for?” They said to him, “Rabbi, where
are you staying?” He said to them, “Come, and see.” So
they went and saw where He was stayiEucharistic Adorationng….” [John 1:38-
39] Did you know that Jesus is staying on a humble, little altar
in the Mercy Chapel? “COME AND SEE,” Jesus invites
you! Would you like to try a “taste” of an Adoration hour per
week during LENT? “TASTE and SEE the goodness of the
Lord.” [Psalm 34:9a] Make this your special Lenten offering
to Jesus.
If you cannot commit to a regular hour, how about being a
substitute? Call Nina & Larry Wagner at (831) 479-8597, or
email [email protected] to sign up. May our Good
God, Who cannot be outdone in generosity, reward you!

St Joseph, our Patron Saint


St Joseph


During March we celebrate
St. Joseph, our Patron
Saint. March is the heart of
Lent, and Joseph as The
spouse of Mary the mother


of Jesus and the legal father
of Jesus according to Jewish

law Joseph is a model of
humility and obedience
to God’s will. He followed
God’s instructions, given by
angels in dreams, and took
the pregnant Mary into his
home as his wife, protected
her and Jesus at the child’s
birth in Bethlehem through
the family’s sojourn in Egypt,
and provided for them as a
carpenter in Nazareth. This
feast, which was celebrated
locally as early as the ninth
century, became a universal
feast in the fifteenth century, when it was placed on the
liturgical calendar. Pope Pius IX named St. Joseph Patron
of the Universal Church in 1870; he is also the patron saint
of carpenters, the dying, and workers.
This year the feast of St. Joseph is celebrated on Monday
March 19th. This is a great time to reflect on St. Joseph, his
role as a father, and as a Patron Saint of our Church.

Two are better than one: They get a good wage for their toil.
If the one falls, the other will help the fallen one. But woe to
the solitary person! If that one should fall, there is no other
to help.
