SAINT OF THE DAY

St. Marianne Cope

St. Marianne Cope

St. Marianne Cope (1838–1918), also known as St. Marianne of Molokai, was a German-born American immigrant. She worked in a New York factory before entering the Sisters of the Third Order of Saint Francis in Syracuse. She spent her early years serving as a leader in health care and education. When the Hawaiian government was searching for a religious order to run a station for victims of leprosy, the Syracuse sisters volunteered immediately. Mother Marianne and six other sisters left for Hawaii in 1883. She devoted 35 years to caring for those afflicted with Hansen’s disease (leprosy) in Molokai, Hawaii. She also opened a hospital and a school for girls on the island of Maui, and took charge of the home St. Damien of Molokai established for men and boys. Mother Marianne changed life on Molokai by introducing cleanliness, dignity, and fun into the colony. Despite her direct contact with leprosy patients over many years, she was not afflicted by the disease, which some consider miraculous. She was canonized in 2012 and her feast day is January 23.

CELEBRATING 25 YEARS

This December our Church will celebrate its Silver Jubilee. To mark this special occasion in our parish history, we are asking for any photos that you might have of when our church was being constructed, our dedication ceremony, or any other events that took place over the years. We are planning to put together a collage of photos and a video timeline. Please bring the photos to the office or see Frances after Mass.

Our Lady of Guadalupe Church

Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church

MISSION STATEMENT

WE, THE CONGREGATION OF OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE CATHOLIC CHURCH, ROOTED IN A CARING COMMUNITY, ARE GUIDED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT TO GROW IN LOVE AND COMPASSION. BY EXTENDING THE HEART AND HANDS OF OUR LADY IN OUR DAILY LIVES, WE JOYFULLY COMMIT OURSELVES TO PROCLAIM THE GOSPEL, CELEBRATE OUR FAITH AND ACKNOWLEDGE OUR DIVERSITY AS GOD’S PRECIOUS GIFT. WE PLEDGE TO SERVE THE NEEDS AND CONCERNS OF EVERYONE AND WILL STRIVE TO BUILD GOD’S KINGDOM OF LOVE, JUSTICE AND PEACE THROUGH WORSHIP, EVANGELIZATION AND SERVICE.


As a precaution during what is becoming an especially tough flu season, the practice of drinking consecrated wine from a shared chalice is temporarily suspended. The Reception of Communion will be limited to consecrated hosts.

 In section 1377 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, it states: “Christ is present whole and entire in each of the species and whole and entire in each of their parts.” When receiving the Eucharist, we receive the fullness of the Body and Blood of Christ under the species of bread alone or wine alone. Communion is more complete when receiving both kinds, but receiving both is not required.

The Sign of Peace, which is often done with a handshake, and the practice of holding hands during the recitation of the “Our Father” will be left up to each individual. For those who prefer not to shake hands during the Sign of Peace, a simple smile or slight bow is acceptable. Please respect their choices.

If you are sick, please stay home and rest. You are automatically dispensed from your obligation to attend Mass due to illness.


Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen


Celebrating the Madonna Sodality of OLG’s
Woman of the Year

Laura Regan

Each year the Santa Rosa Diocesan Council of Catholic Women asks all Women’s Catholic Organizations belonging to the SRDCCW to submit the name of a woman they consider outstanding in their particular group/club, etc., to be honored with mass and a luncheon.
 Our Lady of Guadalupe Madonna Sodality voted for Laura Regan to be awarded this honor for 2017. Due to the fire tragedies, the luncheon date was rescheduled from September/ October to January 13th.
 After celebrating the Mass at St Apollinaris Church in Napa, the Most Reverend Bishop Robert F. Vasa presented a letter of congratulations certificate and a blessing by him.
At the luncheon, a short bio was read, and flowers and a glass “In Appreciation” cross was presented to her.
                           Congratulations Laura.


GOSPEL JANUARY21, 2018

Jesus

After John had been arrested,
Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming
the gospel of God:
"This is the time of fulfillment.
The kingdom of God is at hand.
Repent, and believe in the gospel."

As he passed by the Sea of Galilee,
he saw Simon and his brother Andrew
casting their nets into the sea;
they were fishermen.
Jesus said to them,
"Come after me, and I will
make you fishers of men."
Then they abandoned
their nets and followed him.
 He walked along a little farther
and saw James, the son of Zebedee,
and his brother John.
They too were in a boat
mending their nets.
Then he called them.
So they left their father
Zebedee in the boat
along with the hired men
and followed him.

Stop The Violence!

Verity was founded in 1974 in Sonoma County as a crisis line that men, women, or children who had been sexually assaulted could call. Over the past 38 years the organization has expanded its services to include Prevention/Education, and Crisis Intervention. That crisis line is still the only one of its kind in Sonoma County and operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Call (707) 545-7273 for help.
The local YWCA hot line is (707) 546-1234, also available 24/7.
