Why Do Catholics Do That?

What is Ash Wednesday?

      Ash Wednesday is the beginning of LENT. We receive ashes on our foreheads as a sign that we are entering a time of PENANCE. The ashes remind us of our mortality and call us to repentance. The Priest says either “Remember, man, that you are dust, and unto dust you shall return,” or “Repent and believe in the Gospel.”
      Both of these sayings remind us of how precious time is and how we should use that precious time to grow closer to God. ASH – A Single Heart for GOD!

Annual Catholic Appeal

     On March 2-3, we will once again have the opportunity to be Christ to others. The Appeal is solely dedicated to the social mission of the Church here in Northern California.
     Together as Catholics, the Appeal is a way we can all give through the Church to help our sisters and brothers in a powerful way. Each of our gifts, no matter the amount, really do make a difference in someone's life.
    Please prayerfully consider what you can give this year
