Dear Parishioner and Friend of NDV,
We hope you will be able to join us on November 7, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. for the 70th Annual Bal de Paris. Bal de Paris 2020 will be held virtually, but this will not be another Zoom meeting.  This will be an interactive night of fun, surprises and live auction bidding on wonderful items and class art to benefit our school and church.
Consider becoming a Patron or Sponsor of the Bal. Our Patrons + Sponsors packages have special treats delivered straight to your door, including a French feast from Michael Mina, magnums of champagne, wine and Jules Verne themed Specialty Cocktail baskets to enjoy the Bal at home - in style!  Please reach out to Mila Meniktas at [email protected] for more information.
 
Tickets are on sale now!  If you act quickly you can take advantage of our special Early Bird pricing of $100 per household until October 9th.  Please note that tickets are per household and not per person this year, so for example, a family would need only one ticket to attend the Bal.
 
We look forward to seeing you!
Sunny Shapiro,  Bal de Paris Chairperson    
Sarah Currier, Principal  
Fr. Juan J. Gonzalez, S.M, Pastor

Adoration takes place on the first Friday of each month.

~ YOUNG FRENCH ADULTS! ~

Come and join a group of young adults living in the Bay Area! It is not always easy or exciting to go to mass in a foreign country, or to go alone, this group meets before the 10:30 am mass to attend mass together and then have lunch. 
 
Every two weeks, we plan a Bible Study group, where we can share thoughts on the Evangile of the upcoming Sunday's mass, while sharing dinner.
Everyone speaks French! French natives are welcome to join us! 
 
Rejoins nous !

What if....

"... I am unbaptized but want to grow spiritually in my life."
"... I have a different faith background but want to learn
what Catholics believe and why."
"... I am a baptized Catholic but never made my First Holy
Communion and/or Confirmation."

 

..... we would love to assist you in your faith journey through an exciting and deeply enriching process in the Catholic Church called the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.). RCIA is for those who are seeking a better relationship with God, who are looking for more information about Catholic Christianity, or who are seeking to grow in their spiritual or Sacramental life. The RCIA process welcomes the unbaptized person to the family of Jesus Christ. Sessions are informal and comfortable opportunities to explore the Catholic faith with presentations, discussions, and fellowship.

Explore the faith without obligation & contact Rev. Juan Gonzalez to learn more!

Sts. Isaac Jogues and Rene Goupil: Saint of the Day for Monday, October 19, 2020

In 1642 the Huron country was in great distress. Harvests were poor, sickness abounded, and clothing was scarce. Quebec was the only source of supplies, and Isaac Jogues was chosen to lead an expedition. It reached its objective safely and started back well supplied with goods for the mission, but the Iroquois, the bitter enemies of the Hurons, and fiercest of all Indian tribes, were on the war-path and ambushed the returning expedition. The story of the ill-treatment and torture of the ...

St. Luke: Saint of the Day for Sunday, October 18, 2020

Luke, the writer of the Gospel and the Acts of the Apostles, has been identified with St. Paul's "Luke, the beloved physician" (Colossians 4:14). We know few other facts about Luke's life from Scripture and from early Church historians. It is believed that Luke was born a Greek and a Gentile. In Colossians 10-14 speaks of those friends who are with him. He first mentions all those "of the circumcision" -- in other words, Jews -- and he does not include Luke in this ...

St. Ignatius of Antioch: Saint of the Day for Saturday, October 17, 2020

"I prefer death in Christ Jesus to power over the farthest limits of the earth. He who died in place of us is the one object of my quest. He who rose for our sakes is my one desire."

Four Principles for Catholics during Election Season

Every four years, Catholics face an intense dilemma in regard to the vote. There are ardently Catholic Democrats who wonder how their co-religionists could possibly choose a Republican candidate, and there are ardently Catholic Republicans who express precisely the opposite opinion. And both sides, typically, look with eagerness to their bishops and priests to resolve the tension. Each presidential election cycle, the Church endeavors to clarify the issue, usually to the satisfaction of very few. However, under the rubric of “once more unto the breach, dear friends,” let me try to provide some direction by articulating four basic principles. First, Catholic social teaching clearly goes beyond the split between Republican and Democrat, between liberal and conservative, and therefore corresponds perfectly with neither political camp. Anyone who says that either of our political parties perfectly, or even adequately, represents Catholic social thought is simply misinformed. Broadly speaking, the Democratic Party advocates…

Cuatro principios para los católicos durante la temporada electoral

Cada cuatro años, los católicos se enfrentan a un dilema intenso con respecto a la votación. Hay demócratas ardientemente católicos que se preguntan cómo otros católicos pueden elegir un candidato republicano, y hay republicanos ardientemente católicos que expresan precisamente la opinión opuesta. Y ambos lados, típicamente, miran con ansias a sus obispos y sacerdotes para resolver la tensión. Cada ciclo de elecciones presidenciales, la Iglesia se esfuerza por aclarar el tema, generalmente para la satisfacción de muy pocos. Sin embargo, bajo la rúbrica de “una vez más a la brecha, queridos amigos”, permítanme tratar de proporcionar alguna dirección mediante la articulación de cuatro principios básicos. Primero, la doctrina social de la Iglesia Católica va claramente más allá de la división entre republicano y demócrata, entre liberal y conservador, y por lo tanto no se corresponde perfectamente con ningún campo político. Cualquiera que diga que cualquiera de nuestros partidos políticos representa…

Acknowledging an Abyss; Finding a Bridge

One of the most remarkable differences between the social protests of the 1960’s and those of today is that the former were done in concert with, and often under the explicit leadership of, religious people. One has only to think of the crucially important role played by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King and so many of his colleagues and disciples in the civil rights demonstrations fifty and sixty years ago. But we don’t find today the same concert between those agitating for social change and the religious leadership. There are many reasons for this phenomenon. Perhaps the most important is simply that the number of people who subscribe to religion, especially in the ranks of the young, has precipitously dropped in our society. But I also think that there is something subtler at play as well, and I have to put on my philosopher’s hat to articulate it. In…
