Actualización española COVID-19
Following the instructions of Bishop Soto and Diocese guidance, in response to increasing COVID-19 cases and in collaboration with the latest Sacramento County Health Department guidelines, all indoor Masses have been suspended.  Bishop Soto has temporarily authorized the outdoor distribution of communion after the faithful have observed the celebration of Mass through livestreaming connections.

Of Great Importance, We Need Your Help and Cooperation

We have been blest to have the use of My Parish App (MPA) for free for an exceptionally long time now.  At the end of the year, we will be charged $59/ mo. to keep it going.  This is a tremendous app that has a wealth of information concerning our Catholic Faith and links to readings, reflections, and many other aspects of our faith that we should be aware of to develop a greater appreciation for this phenomenal gift we have been given.

It is also a critical form of communication for the parish to keep you informed of any changes in our parish schedules.  One of the many lessons we have learned during this pandemic, is our need to be able to communicate effectively with each other.  We expect many parishioners will not receive this email, or open it and will be upset because they were not aware of the changes we have had to incorporate to comply with Bishop Soto’s direction and the guidance of the diocese.  MPA helps us bridge that gap. 

Unfortunately, we only have 100 registered users of MPA.  We cannot urge you strongly enough to take just a moment to download this app.  In the end the download is simple and straightforward and will save all of us a lot of unnecessary grief. The awesome bonus is you will then have access to some of the most incredible resources of our Catholic Faith.  It is free to you, all you need to do is download it, test drive it for a month, and if it doesn’t work for you, you can remove it and you aren’t out anything. We are just asking you to give it a try, that’s all.

You can download the app through the app store on your smartphone or on your tablet.  You can also download it through this link https://myparishapp.com/

Many of you received a phone call/message from Dcn. Mark Holt through ParishSOFT Giving, in which he mentioned that we were celebrating Mass on the basketball courts behind the school.  Unfortunately, that was an old message created as we were rolling out our new online giving platform.  MPA allows us to notify you of that error and correct it more effectively than any other means of communication currently available to us.

Thank you for your cooperation and support of Holy Family.

Cause of Beatification and Canonization of Bishop Gallegos

Cardinal Prefect Angelo and Cardinal Amato from the Congregation of the Cause of Saints anticipates the process of submitting the Cause for Bishops in the fall of 2016.
Per Cardinal Amato, "the recognition of a miracle through the intercession of the Servant of God is required for Beatification.  I encourage you and all the parishioners of your respective communities to promote awareness of Bishop Gallegos and invoke his intercession.

 

Bishop Alphonse Gallegos, O.A.R.
Auxiliary Bishop of Sacramento, California
1931-1991

Born in Albuquerque, New Mexico, February 20, 1931, professed religious vows in the Order of Augustinian Recollects in 1951 and was ordained priest on May 24, 1958. He exercised his priestly ministry in New York, Kansas and in California and was consecrated Auxiliary Bishop of Sacramento on November 4, 1981.
He was full of life and always positive in everything he said and did.  His deteriorating eyesight was not a hindrance for him to bring light and life to others, because he did not see with the light of eyes but with the greatness of his heart.  He championed the cause of the poor and the marginalized, the migrants and the youth.  He defended the right of the unborn and tended to the sick and the aged.  He was always attentive and loving to all.  But above all he was a man of prayer, a loyal son of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

A vehicular accident on October 6, 1991 took the life of this gentle man, loving priest and caring bishop.

PRAYER
God our Father, in Bishop Aphonse Gallegos, you gave a light to your faithful people.  You made him pastor of the Church to feed your sheep with his words and to teach them by his example.  We pray that his life of holiness and service to the People of God by acknowledged and that this loyal son of Our Lady of Guadalupe be counted among the saints of your Kingdom.  We ask this blessing through Christ our Lord. Amen.

(personal intention)
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be
