~ 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!

Saint of the Day

Bl. Miguel Pro: Saint of the Day for Monday, November 23, 2020

Born on January 13, 1891 in Guadalupe, Mexico, Miguel Agustin Pro Juarez was the eldest son of Miguel Pro and Josefa Juarez. Miguelito, as his doting family called him, was, from an early age, intensely spiritual and equally intense in hi mischievousness, frequently exasperating his family with his humor and practical jokes. As a child, he had a daring precociouness that sometimes went too far, tossing him into near-death accidents and illnesses. On regaining consciousness after one of ...

St. Cecilia: Saint of the Day for Sunday, November 22, 2020

In the fourth century a Greek religious romance on the Loves of Cecilia and Valerian was written in glorification of virginal life with the purpose of taking the place of then-popular sensual romances.

Consequently, until better evidence is produced, we must conclude that St. Cecilia was not known or venerated in Rome until about the time when Pope Gelasius (496) introduced her name into his Sacramentary.

Pope Francis, “Fratelli Tutti,” and the Universal Destination of Goods

In the wake of the publication of Pope Francis’ most recent encyclical letter Fratelli Tutti, there was a great deal of negative commentary regarding the pope’s attitude toward capitalism and private property. Many readers interpreted Francis to mean that the capitalist system is, in itself, exploitative and that the holding of private property is morally problematic. Like most who write in a prophetic mode, Pope Francis is indeed given to strong and challenging language, and therefore, it is easy enough to understand how he excites opposition. But it is most important to read what he says with care and to interpret it within the context of the long tradition of Catholic social teaching. First, in regard to capitalism, or what the Church prefers to call the “market economy,” the pope has this to say: “Business activity is essentially ‘a noble vocation, directed to producing wealth and improving our world’”…

El Papa Francisco, “Fratelli Tutti”, y el destino universal de los bienes

Tras la publicación de la carta encíclica más reciente del Papa Francisco, Fratelli Tutti, hubo muchos comentarios negativos sobre la actitud del Papa hacia el capitalismo y la propiedad privada. Muchos lectores interpretaron a Francisco como que el sistema capitalista es, en sí mismo, explotador y que la tenencia de la propiedad privada es moralmente problemática. Al igual que la mayoría de los que escriben en un modo profético, el Papa Francisco tiene una inclinación por el uso de un lenguaje fuerte y desafiante, y por lo tanto, es bastante fácil entender cómo suscita oposición. Pero lo más importante es leer lo que dice con cuidado e interpretarlo dentro del contexto de la larga tradición de la enseñanza social católica. En primer lugar, con respecto al capitalismo, o lo que la Iglesia prefiere llamar la “economía de mercado”, el Papa tiene esto que decir: “Es verdad que la actividad…

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…
