There Are Many Propositions On The November Ballot!
The California Catholic Bishops have taken a position in favor of Proposition 47, The Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act. The initiative has wide reaching impact both fiscally and socially. The prison system in California and the nation is broken and does not address the root cause of serious crime. Learn more at www.cacatholic.org.

Car Needed
Can You Help?

We welcome Fr. Chris Varghese to our parish as a Parochial Vicar. Fr. Chris is a religious order priest and new to the United States. He needs a car to carry out his ministry in our parish. If you, or someone you know, has a car you would be willing to give Fr. Chris it would be a tremendous gift to him and his ministry. Fr. Chris is not a mechanic and does not have money for repairs, so a car would need to be in working order. If you have a car or an idea of how to help Fr. Chris, please call David at the Parish Office: 524-7421. Thank you.

An Autumn Message About Child Protection
Autumn means back to school for children and back to work for those who have been on vacation. Amidst the hustle and bustle of this season, let us all keep sight of the importance of keeping our children and young people safe from danger.
Training requirements to safeguard children have been established in parishes throughout the Diocese of Stockton. These training requirements help ensure that all children and youth experience a safe environment in all parish activities and events.
The Diocese of Stockton mandates that all people who work with children and youth in our parishes and schools must undergo child abuse prevention training through the guidelines established by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. This training includes being fingerprinted and background checked and completing an on-line training course entitled Shield the Vulnerable. If you are planning on helping or assisting in your child’s school, you are required to complete this training.
For training information, contact your local parish/school Safe Environment Coordinator.
For particular help and questions you may call: Linda Dillen, Manager of Benefits & Safe Environment for the Diocese of Stockton, at (209) 466-0636.
