Pastor's Update

Fr. Arnold Zamora

December 3, 2021

Things you may want to know this week.


We had a wonderful meeting with the First Reconciliation parents from both the school and CCD families last Wednesday, December 1st in the church. Ms Joanne Bartolotti and Mr. Lawrence Kong-Ellisson took turns in presenting the evening’s agenda with the help of both Ms. Leslie Fong and Mrs. Joanne Nolan, our Second Grade teacher. After the meeting a parent from another religion approached me expressing the family’s desire for their daughter to fully embrace the Catholic faith. Another parent has also expressed that same desire so their children can participate fully in the sacraments of our Catholic Church. More than an evening of evangelization, it was also an evening of conversion.


This Wednesday, December 8, is the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception. It is a Day of Obligation and we have two masses at 8:30AM and 7:00PM.


The names of the deceased have been removed from the Church walls. The certificates are in a box at the Blessed Mother’s statue. Please take the certificates that you submitted names for, and remind your friends to come and take theirs. The box will remain at Mary’s statue until Dec 20. After that the remaining certificates will be shredded. Thanks again to Barbara Rudometkin for taking care of it.


Next Saturday, December 11, is our Women’s Guild hosted “Breakfast with Santa” that includes a full pancake breakfast, crafts, and a personal visit from Santa. The three seating times (8:00AM, 10:00AM & 12:00PM) have sold out! Speaking of Santa, thanks to Danny Murtagh for playing the role of Santa riding in the full-sized firetruck and taking pictures with the kids and also Cristina Piquitte for playing the role of Grinch being arrested and put into the police car.


Check out two Christmas Trees for the poor: “Adopt-A-Family Tree” and the “Little Church Giving Tree.” Pull a tag for the gift you wish to donate and make a family or a child happy this Christmas. Scroll down for more details.

Dear parishioners and friends of St. Roberts,

Welcome to a new month, the last of the year!

but it never travels faster than one day at a time.

Each day is a NEW opportunity to live our life to the fullest.

In each waking day, we will find scores of BLESSINGS and opportunities for POSITIVE change.
By GOD's amazing grace...

"When you pray for others, GOD listens to you, and blesses them.
When you are happy and feel blessed, remember, someone has prayed for you too....
Life is all about giving and receiving...
What ever comes around, goes around."

Have wonderful NEW DAY that is EVERYDAY!
Fr. Arnold
