Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament Ministry

This invitation does not come directly from us but from God Himself...In Rev. 3:20, He says to us “Behold, I stand at the door and knock.  If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will enter…” and in 2 Chronicles 7:14,“If my people, humble themselves and pray, and seek my presence…I will hear them…and pardon their sins and revive their land.”  Can you imagine that “Revive their land”….and because it is God who is speaking to us, we can claim His promise.

We are truly blessed to have 24 hour Adoration on the first Friday of the month. In order to continue and accomplish this we need a minimum of three people to stay with Our Lord for one hour.  He cannot be left alone.  GOD is inviting you to come and be with Him.  Will you accept His invitation and sign up for one hour?  Let us come and Reverence Him and please Him, and like Lazarus said, “let us allow Him to awaken us”. Let us say YES LORD, YES LORD.  Speak to me your servant is listening.   For more information contact: Looking for a ministry head. contact the parish office.

Baptism – Spanish (Bautizos)

En el sacramento de Bautismo, Dios muestra su amor.  Mediante este sacramento, sus niños pasarán, de manera especial, a ser parte de la familia de la Iglesia.  En la preparación, ofrecida a ustedes por la comunidad parroquial, ha sido escrita para ayudarles a pensar sobre el importante paso que están tomando al hacer bautizar a su hijo/a.  También tiene por objeto ayudarles a reflexionar sobre el maravilloso amor que Dios quiere compartir con ustedes y con su hijo/a.  Esperamos que disfruten las ideas y el compartir y, sobre todo, esperamos que ustedes conozcan más profundamente como Dios los ama. Para más información comuníquese con: Octaviano y Irma Sánchez (760) 949-4963

 

Baptism-English

The English Baptism team explains the ritual of the Sacrament of Baptism and the role of the Christian parents and godparents.  The baptismal preparation is the second Saturday of the month (except during Lent). The very fact that you have asked to have your baby baptized shows that you recognize the importance of God in your life.  The Church recognizes the desire of Christian parents to share the life of Christ with their children.  Jesus Christ, like you, wants the best for your child.  Your child’s baptism is only the beginning of a new life in which you will grow closer to one another in the family and closer to God.  The Church welcomes your child into its midst with love and prayers for the future peace and happiness of your family in the years ahead. For more information contact: the office

 

Bereavement

Bereavement Ministry is a ministry that helps families of the deceased in the preparation of their love one’s funeral mass.  It tries to alleviate stress from the family by taking care of the liturgy preparation and funeral reception so that they are able to take care of other necessities.

We help the family of the deceased with mass services by asking family members if they would like to participate in the readings, taking of the gifts to the altar, and placing the pall on the casket which is a blessed cloth placed on the casket after the casket is sprinkled with holy water.  If the family members are not in any condition to do so, the bereavement ministry would be responsible in assigning these roles.

We offer the family of the deceased a reception in the hall if they wish. If the family member belongs to a ministry, we call those ministries to bring food. If they don’t, the family has to supply the food. We supply coffee, tea, lemonade, paper plates, napkins, plastic ware, and cups.  We have platters, bowls, trays, and containers to keep food warm or cold. All of these are set out just before the family guests arrive.

We have a staff that helps with setting up, preparations, and clean up. We offer this serve so that the family does not have to worry about it. We do not charge for this, but a donation is greatly appreciated to help pay for the supplies used.

The Bereavement Committee is made up of volunteer staff usually people that have gone through the same things. We do need people to help set the tables and chairs and put them away as the majority of us are too old to do this.   For more information contact: Jean Bitonti (760) 947-0633

Faith Formation EDGE Program- Jr. High

The program of EDGE is a Catholic middle school youth ministry for early adolescents in grades 6-8 who have received the Sacrament of Eucharist. It is designed to meet the catechetical, educational, spiritual, emotional and social needs of young adolescents.

Edge approaches catechesis to middle-school youth using a retreat model. Middle-school youth are removed from behind classroom desks and brought into a large-group environment for gathering activities, teachings and prayer. In small groups according to grade level, they break open the teachings and build solid, Christ-centered relationships that allow them to comfortably explore their Catholic faith and make it relevant to their everyday lives, in a rotation of Catechesis, Issues and Socials. This helps build safe relationships during some of the most formative years of a teen’s life.

The catechetical themes have a variety of topics to explore and teach to youth. This creative and experiential approach engages youth to understand Catholic teaching and form their Catholic identity. This is a very important time for these youth to build strong relationships with their parents.  It provides the opportunity for parents to participate as small group facilitators which builds on their relationship with their children.  For more information contact: Father Tomas 

 

Faith Formation Program- Growing in God

We are a faith formation program that includes sacramental classes and catechesis from Kindergarten through 6th grade.  Our children are shown the love of the Lord through our teachers, classes, and activities.  We enjoy parent involvement, crafts, and biblical based learning.  We plan our classes for enjoyment as much as learning about our faith.  Our goal is to help raise children to appreciate, understand, and enjoy their shared faith.   

The Elementary Program offered in English uses "Blest are We" series. The curriculum is divided into four parts: What Catholics believe, How Catholics Worship, How Catholics live and How Catholics pray. These three important elements of Catholic belief, God's word, and liturgical celebration are interwoven throughout each grade level of Blest are We. They are also taught as separate strands in each grade. This balanced approach ensures that children will come to know, love, and live the rich heritage of the faith we are proud to profess in Christ Jesus.

The doctrines taught in Blest are we are drawn from the four pillars of faith as presented in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. These important teachings are developmentally presented to help the children recognize that what we believe, how we worship, how we live, and how we pray make a difference in our lives. For more information contact: Laura Goodman (760) 244-5423

Lectors Ministry-English

As a lector, your ministry helps to facilitate the public prayer of the Church in the Liturgy of the Word.  This is a tremendous responsibility, but one which you do not need to take on by yourself.  There are other lectors who proclaim the Word in your parish; the ordained ministers and lay ecclesial ministers in your parish community are present to help form you so that you might better be able to carry out your ministry of proclamation and prayer.  You also belong to a church community that has called you forth and recognized that you have either the gift of public speaking or are a person of prayer – or perhaps both.  Through your continued participation in the Church’s liturgy, your involvement in workshops for lectors, your own preparation, and above all the willingness to grow in your relationship with God, you will hone your skills and gifts as a lector.  If you are interested, training is required.  For more information contact: Maggie Tappia

 

Lectors Ministry- Spanish (PROCLAMADORES DE LA PALABRA)

El proclamador de la palabra en la liturgia es como el profeta que lleva la Palabra de Dios al pueblo que se reúne para escucharla.  El profeta y el proclamador se distinguen porque el profeta suscitaba reverencia pero a veces era rechazado, pero el proclamador es un ministro de la palabra que tiene el respeto de su comunidad.  Aunque el homilista es quien interpreta para la asamblea el significado de las lecturas, el proclamador con su estilo, su comprensión del texto y su tono ofrece ya la primera interpretación de la Palabra de Dios a la asamblea que celebra.  El estilo de lectura por parte el proclamador, para que sea fiel al espíritu del texto y al significado que le da la Iglesia requiere muy cuidadosa preparación, la disposición apropiada y un gran esmero en transmitir el mensaje de las lecturas, no el propio.  Los ensayos del ministerio son el último lunes de cada mes a las 6:00 p.m. en la Iglesia.  Para mayor información comuníquese con: Elizabeth Ramirez 760-680-1739

Assists the parents in their reinforcing what is already being taught and lived in their home. Our classes are aged appropriate, characteristics of development stages, starting with God as creator of all and Jesus as the teacher of our way of life.  It presents the Bible as God’s Living Word. Flowing from this is the need for prayer and worship, the Sacraments, and the salvation history. As Jesus grew in wisdom and grace, so do we, His children.

Sacristan

The sacristans take care of the altar and prepare it for the next liturgies. They make sure that there is enough host and wine for the next liturgies.  They also make sure that supplies such as candles, incense, lighters, and altar cloths are available.  They advise the front office if any supplies are in need of replacement. Sacristan volunteers are needed for every Mass.  For more information contact:  Looking for a volunteer

Assist the Diocese in evaluating a staff or ministry volunteer's suitability to work with children, youth or the vulnerable adults.

Provide a system to respond to the victims and their families, as well as the accused.

Protect our Diocese, parish, clergy, employees, and volunteers as well as our children and young people.
