Things you may want to know this week.


A warm CONGRATULATION to JUDY and GARY DeMartini on their Golden Wedding anniversary today. Fifty years of love, commitment, and companionship is an extraordinary achievement. Their journey together is an inspiration to us all and a reminder of the beauty and power of a loving partnership. Congratulations, and have a lovely day!


Four of our parishioners who are members of our St. Vincent de Paul Society are the recipients of the "2023 Ozanam Awards" to be held at St. Patrick's Seminary in Menlo Park tomorrow, September 30, 2023. Mary Nunnery and Sandy Mangold are the recipients of this year's Vincentian Zeal Award. While Carlo and Marie Noce are the recipients of the Monsieur Bailly Conference Award. The event will start with a mass at 10:30a.m. followed by a luncheon and the awarding ceremony. Congratulations, good and faithful servants!


This Sunday, October 1, is observed as Respect Life Sunday. As Catholics, we are called to cherish, defend, and protect those who are most vulnerable, from conception to natural death. Put a few minutes aside and pray the Rosary in this month of Rosary.

Dear St. Robert’s parishioners and friends,

When you touch someone's life, it is a privilege.
When you touch someone's heart, it is a blessing
When you touch someone's mind, it is an honor.
When you touch someone's soul, it is a triumph.
When you touch someone's spirit, it is a miracle.

Have a blessed day!
-Fr. Arnold

What is a synod?

A synod is a council of the Church, usually convened to decide an issue of doctrine, administration or application. The word synod is from the Greek sinodos (s???d??) meaning “assembly” or “meeting” and is similar to the Latin concilium meaning “council”. Sometimes the phrase “general synod” or “general council” refers to an ecumenical council, like the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965).
