Please pray for the repose of the soul of Fr. Michael Bell - faithful shepherd to the Latin Mass community in the Southern half of the Diocese of Monterey, and good friend to our own Chaplain Fr. Nicholas Milich. Fr. Bell passes away last night due to complications from a stroke suffered a few weeks ago. He died peacefully just before midnight Saturday, with a recording of Gregorian chant in the background. Funeral arrangements are pending.

Requiem aeternam dona ei, Domine.
Et lux perpetua luceat ei.

JMJ Home Christmas Outreach 2014 Thank You

Dear Parishioners,

Please forgive me for the delay in getting the information from our Jesus Mary Joseph Home gift delivery. This year I had to stay home with our newborn Gregory James, so I sent Matt with the gifts. He was accompanied by our daughters, Tracey Lawrence with  her daughters, Lexi Zenk,  Kelly Clawson and her girls. Matt remarked, "that home is such a treasure, I wish more of the Latin Mass community could experience it and join us on the delivery next year!".

On that note , next year I hope to start the gift gathering a bit earlier and remind any of those interested on joining us to come along for a brief visit.
Thank you for all your generosity and love.
