It’s not too late to register for Confirmation. Please return the following forms to the Parish Office during normal office hours (8am-5pm). For questions please call our DRE, Aina Yates at 646-0307 or our Youth Minister, Brian Campos at 646-4338 x 102.
This afternoon, we had our first class with our 2nd year Youth Confirmation Candidates. This was a special meeting because we asked them to come with at least one parent. We talked about the importance of parents sharing their faith with their children, because research has shown that it is parent involvement in the religious upbringing of their children that determines whether or not their child will be a person of faith or not.
Two weeks from now, we will have our Confirmation/Youth Ministry fall kick-off event, our 3rd Annual Holy Spirit Olympics. This will be the first Confirmation class for our Year I candidates and will be the second class for our Year II candidates. You don’t have to be in Confirmation to attend though, it’s open to all of our young people from the 7th-12th grade, so come to the church on Sunday September 22, 2013 from 4-6pm to compete in our games for the honor of God the Holy Spirit!
It’s also not too late to sign-up for Confirmation. Youth Confirmation is open to all young people in high school. Please fill out the forms and return it to the Parish Office during normal office hours.
For questions regarding Confirmation please call our DRE, Aina Yates at 646-0307 or our Youth Minister, Brian Campos at 646-4338 x 102.

Happy Solemnity of St. Augustine!!! (Solemnity, because we are an Augustinian parish)
St. Augustine is often called the greatest of the Doctors of the Church, because he gave us so much wisdom and insight in our relationship with God. One of the many things he taught the church by the example of his own life is man’s never ending thirst for God, so beautifully summed up in this famous quotation of his, “You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you!”
One of the things I always try to remind our youth is that even if you feel like you’re far away from God and that you’ve done all of these things that you feel as though you don’t deserve His love, just look at the life of St. Augustine. His life is a testament that God never gives up on us, and that if we open our hearts to Him, there is no limit to what good things He can do with us.
If you haven’t had the chance to read some of his writings, consider making a resolution today to start.
This weekend at our parish, we will be celebrating this Solemnity at all of our Sunday Liturgies. So please join us in celebrating this great saint and in imploring for his intercession.
St. Augustine, pray for us! Blessed be God, in His angels and in His saints!
