Flores de Mayo – We dedicate one mass each Sunday of May with a procession of children to offer flowers to our Blessed Mother.

Saturday, December 18, 2021 StJoseph-Catholic-Church-Fremont-Simbang_Gabi The Filipino Community invites you to join us for our annual Simbang Gabi (Dawn Mass) on Saturday, December 18. As we prepare for the coming of Christmas and our TFCSJ “Simbang Gabi” event on Saturday, December 18, we are excited to invite you and your families to some meaningful and fun-filled activities as part of our fund raising program. In light of the spirit of giving this holiday season, TFCSJ will donate a portion of the following fund raising activities to Sr. John Marie’s Pantry and share the holiday spirit to children from the less-fortunate families of a chosen charitable organization. In the past, we supported St. Joseph the Worker Parish in Tala, Caloocan, Philippines, Sisters of Mary in Caloocan, Philipines, etc….

Star for a Christmas Meal: TFCSJ will set up a table (or you can purchase from us via email) to sell Christmas stars for a donation of $3 (Blue), $5 (Red) or $10 (Gold). Each star will have your name on it and will be hung on the Christmas Tree by the choir area. Each star donation will represent a Christmas meal ticket for a child from our adopted parish. Help us fill the tree with the stars!

We need volunteers before & after each of the masses. Your children are welcome to participate! Please let us know asap if you are interested. With the generous support of people like you, our families can help make a difference and share the spirit of Christmas with these children. At the same time, our children will experience a part of the Filipino culture and tradition, and celebrate the joy of giving this Christmas season.
Thank you again, and we look forward to your continued support.
