GOOD NEWS NOTICE! Scripture Class
(207 reads)
Tuesday, September 2 The Tuesday Morning Scripture class starts again on Sept. 2., 9:30- 11:00 am in Ministry House 2. We cordially invite you to join us in reading and studying the up-coming Sunday Scripture readings. There is no homework involved. We have a commentary and discussion on each of the readings. We have both men and women attending the class. If You are a beginner and do not have a bible, we have a few that can be loaned out for the class. If you have an older version that's fine too. For the Christian, the Bible has an importance far more profound than its impact on culture. As Christians we reverence and love the Scriptures and seek to understand them as much as we can. For questions call 510-656-2331

A Message from Sister Mary Teresa
(16 reads)
Dear Friends:
I will be leaving St. Joseph Parish August 1st, after serving here as Pastoral Associate / Director of Faith Formation for 5 years. I leave with a heavy heart since I have made so many friendships here and have gotten to know so many of you.

I felt it was time for me to step aside and allow someone else to bring their gifts to this ministry. I would like to express my deepest gratitude for your love and support throughout these years. I ask you to remember me in your prayers, as you will be in mine.

May Our Lord bless you and your family always,

Sincerely in Christ,
Sister Mary Teresa Parker, OP
