The Mission Dinner Community gathers to fellowship, enjoy a great meal and raise funds for global poverty causes, primarily supporting our sister Dominican parish, Santa Maria de Guadalupe in Mexicali, but also occasionally raising funds for other compelling causes. We take the summer off. The next dinner will be on Sunday, October 18, 2015 from 6-8pm in the Parish Hall. We will have a visit from Father Miguel Rolland, pastor of our sister parish and a parishioner leader Dona Maria Teresa Bastidas. Please come and show our guests a warm welcome! You may read Father Miguel’s most recent letter in the News and Events Section. You may contact Sharon Henthorn-Iwane at 510-527-5035 or Carolyn Tune in the church office on Mondays and Tuesdays.
Parishioners are invited to join the Small Christian Community on Fridays, immediately following the 8:00 a.m. Mass, in the parish office Conference Room for coffee and group discussion of the following Sunday readings. Please contact the parish office for more information.
