Dia de los Muertos

I am making an altar today to honor our missioners who have gone before us in celebration of dia de los muertos. Visit this website to learn more about this holiday: http://www.diadelosmuertos.us/

Mission Sunday...Oct. 19th

This Sunday we celebrate World Mission Sunday. Read Pope Benedict's Mission Sunday message here.

We'll be heading down to Arroyo Grande to celebrate Mission Sunday with the folks at St. Patrick's parish. Fr. Dennis Cleary, Fr. Bill Boteler and I will be preaching on mission at all the masses and Kris, Marie and the Affiliates will be on hand after the masses to talk about mission and sign people up for the Maryknoll Magazine. Come by and see our Century of Mission Display.

Also, in the afternoon at 3pm, we'll be hosting a Mass and Dinner to thank our supporters in the area. If you're in the area and want to join us, call Kris at 510-276-5021.

The most exciting thing about this trip and one of the reasons why we're heading down there is that a new Maryknoll Affiliate Chapter has been formed in the San Luis Obispo area. To find out more about this group, contact David or Paula Schaffner at paulasway@gmail.com.
