A Message from our Pastor, Fr. Bobby

There are many things can divide us. Today we are reminded by St. Paul what it is that unites us: one Lord, one Faith one Baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. As Christians, we are free to disagree about things and even at times argue. We are not free to hate. Whatever tempts us to belittle, attack, and attempt to destroy others is not from God. Today once more we have to ask the Lord to give us the strength to follow Jesus in truth and love.

As some of you may have already heard, Fr. James Johnson will be transferred from the Mission to our formation house in Berkeley to bolster the community there. He has served here at OMSI for over seven years, and we are very grateful for his loving presence and service to our community. He will be moving north in early September.

Please pray for these novices who began their year of probation on July 18:

Br. McLean Bennett         Br.  Franco Chávez        Br. Brian Nwaokolo  

Br. Kriston Mary Gloria    Br.  Oscar Rodriguez    Br. Gabriel Conlon

Br. Jaico George                Br.  Isaac Webb            Br. Pablo Lopez

Br. Federico Viquez

This Sunday has been established by Pope Francis as World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly. We pray in gratitude for all those who have gone before us, especially for the faith and values we have learned through them. St. Joachim and St. Ann, pray for us! May the Lord bless you all!    Fr. Bobby
