Rose Grimm update
My mom will have her first round of post-operation chemo tomorrow. Although this is the right time, we are uneasy about how this will hit her since she has not fully recovered from the surgery, and is very low energy. Please pray for the chemo to be both effective and gentle, and for her overall recovery. She is so grateful for your prayers, which have sustained her (and us) at this tough time!
I also must ask you for prayer for my beloved mother-in-law Betty Zepeda. As some of you know, in recent weeks she also was diagnosed with cancer, and had a large tumor removed last week. She is now recovering from the surgery and waiting to hear if she will need to have chemo. It would be a great mercy if she didn't. She is a very tough lady, but she is in her late 80s! Of your charity, please remember her healing in your prayers as well.
Thank you so much for your kindness and support. You are a true blessing to our family.
Holy Patroness of those in need, St. Rita, you were humble, pure and patient. Your pleadings with your divine Spouse are irresistible, so please obtain for me from our risen Jesus the request I make of you: for all Our Lady's intentions for Rose and Betty, especially, if it be God's will, speedy and complete healing. Be kind to me for the greater glory of God, and I shall honor you and sing your praises forever. Glorious St. Rita, you miraculously participated in the sorrowful passion of our Lord Jesus Christ. Obtain for me now the grace to suffer with resignation the troubles of this life, and protect me in all my needs. Amen.
Blessed Solanus Casey, pray for us.
Blessed John Henry Newman, pray for us.
The Woolsey and Hill Fires now out of control in the southern part of the Santa Barbara Region has forced thousands to flee with no end in sight. Highway closures have many stranded with nowhere to go and the immediate need for food and shelter will soon begin to become apparent. Two of our parishes have also evacuated and altho0ough no buildings have been reported lost, we all know that it will take several days to learn the full extent of any damage or injury.
Earlier this year the Thomas Fire which effected so many of our own family...Read more
It has been almost 8 years since the publication of our last parish directory, and with our parish celebrating our 100th Jubilee on February 2019, we thought there would be no better time than to publish a new parish directory. Lifetouch will be taking family pictures on November 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. In order to receive and be in the directory you will need to have your picture taken by Lifetouch on these dates. You will also get a free 8x10 print and there is no obligating to buy additional prints. We will take paper sign-ups...Read more
