Pastor's Update


Fr. Arnold Zamora

January 27, 2023

Things you may want to know this week.

1.

Catholic School Week (CSW) starts this Sunday at the 9:30a.m. Mass. The CSW 2023 theme is “Catholic Schools: Faith. Excellence. Service.” Our St Robert School students are coming to Mass in uniform. Visit the Scholastic Book Fair in Hennessy Hall after the Mass. As Dr. Sullivan would say, “It’s time to celebrate the beauty of St. Robert School and Catholic Education."

2.

Our monthly Grief Support Meeting will be held on Thursday, February 2, 2023, at 9:15a.m., in the Convent. The meeting is open to all who are grieving the loss of a loved one. For more information, please email: Judy Kerrigan at srconsolationmin@att.net

3.

Friday, February 3rd, is the School Fun Run. Each grade takes turns running from 8:10a.m. to 2:00p.m. Come and watch our students run for fun. The main parking lot will not be available to those who are attending Mass which will be followed by our First Friday devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament that ends with a Benediction at 9:45a.m. Friday is also the Feast of Saint Blaise, when we have the Blessing of the Throat.

4.

Saturday, February 4th, is our Crab Dinner. The price is $70 per person. If you don’t like crab, we would still love to see you there. We have another dinner option for you. Let’s enjoy the evening!

5.

We will celebrate Scout Sunday on February 5, 2023. We ask all Scouts in the parish to wear their uniform when they go to the 9:30a.m. mass. If you like to participate in the mass please contact Kathie Laupati at klaupati@srbears.org

6.

Here is a fun evening for all the men of our parish! This Monday, February 6, is the first Men’s Club meeting of the year. Doors open at 6:00p.m.

7.

We have formally started a Stewardship Council at St. Robert’s with a meeting last Tuesday evening. Florian Romero, Director of Stewardship of the Archdiocese, Cecile Sabater and Ricky Inting gave an orientation on what Stewardship is all about and the role of a Stewardship Council in the parish. Present in the meeting were Monica Castillo, Gerard and Karen Arquero, Joe Fenech, Jay Morena, and Edita Cruz. We are still looking for committed members who could help usher our parish into a future of wholehearted response to God, which nothing less than the recognition that everything we have and everything we are is a gift from God.

8.

Archbishop Cordileone recently appointed me to serve as a member of the College of Consultors of the Archdiocese and on the board of the Capital Assets Support Corporation (CASC). The College of Consultors acts in accord with Canon Law, and advises the Bishop on major decisions affecting the archdiocese. Its members also serve on the Council of Priests or Presbyteral Council. Please pray for me to grow in my pastoral zeal as these new roles mean more responsibilities and meetings to attend.

9.

The memorial of St. Josephine Bakhita, February 8, has been designated as the first International Day of Prayer and Awareness against Human Trafficking. You are all invited to a Human Trafficking Rosary and Speaker Webinar on Wednesday, February 8, 2023, at 6:00p.m. to invoke her aide in bringing awareness to the evil of Human Trafficking, and to intercede for the victims and survivors of human trafficking. Link to register at sfarch.org/event/josephine/

10.

Our beloved and longtime parishioner Barbara Rudometkin is moving for good to Oklahoma to be with her sister. We will miss her dearly as we thank her for generously sharing her time, talent, and treasure with St. Robert’s as a Lector, Eucharistic Minister, Minister to the Sick and Homebound, head of the Collection counters, the Grown-ups and other ministries in which she was actively involved. She was a best example of a good Steward living the Stewardship way of life. She promised to visit us once in a while.

11.

We’ve received word from Sr. Patricia that Sr. Vianney is now in her final days, and is about to return to the Father. Please offer some prayers for her.

Fr. Arnold

Fr. Arnold Zamora

(Father Arnold Zamora)

January 27, 2023

Dear St. Robert’s parishioners and friends,

January is almost over!

Life is passing by so fast, so do not waste time by being angry, stressed, unhappy, or worried.

A wise man once asked GOD:

What is the meaning of life?

GOD replied: Life itself has no meaning.

It is an opportunity given for you to give life meaning.


God bless your family, and have a meaningful day!

Fr. Arnold


Synod

2021 thru 2023

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).
