Thank you for  your continued support!  


Our Second Collection this Sunday is for Peter's Pence. Please be as generous as possible. Thank-you. 

     Dear Friends,


It has come to my attention that some checks from our Sunday Collections have not been deposited in the bank, nor recorded into our computers.  In addition, some parishioners were told that they would receive Marriage Blessings, Mass Intentions, Sacramental Certificates, Sunday Envelopes, and other matters of Church business without any follow-up.  If this has been the case, please call the Rectory Office with your requests and be assured that I will meet your needs in any way that I can.  Most of these issues have been resolved, but I would like to hear from you if you have any unfulfilled requests.


Should you have any questions regarding this matter, do not hesitate to call the Rectory Office.  Please be sure to direct any concerns to our Parish Office, during office hours, and speak with an active member of our staff.  Any conversations regarding church business that may have taken place outside of this office, I ask you to please disregard.  I will be happy to assist you with any issues you may have, in the strictest confidence.


I am working hard to straighten out our data entry and financial records, and I am confident that it will soon be resolved!  I am always happy to hear suggestions from our parishioners, so please call us or stop by the rectory:  your call or visit would be most welcome.


I’m sorry that I have to write you a letter like this, but I told you, from the very beginning, I wanted to be completely honest with you.  I’m sorry that this has even happened.  Together, let us continue to build the City of God in our small section of South City.


Have a great week and a great summer!

Help Us Recycle


The Society of St. Vincent de Paul has started a program to recycle small appliances—stereos, speakers , computers, monitors, printers, TVs, DVDs, VCRs, microwaves, small kitchen appliances, etc., whether they are working or not.  Do something good for the environment and save yourself the cost of paying dumping fees.  Items can be brought to stores conveniently located in Daly City, SSF, San Mateo, Redwood City, or call (650) 871-6844 to arrange a pick-up.  All proceeds from the recycling program benefit the needy in San Mateo County.


     Boosting Mater Dolorosa’s school enrollment is a #1 priority in my book.  I want to promote the positive new environment at the school, and our best marketing tool is our current students and parents.

     To show you how serious we are at boosting enrollment, I have authorized our new principal, Sister Teresita, to offer a $1,000.00 tuition credit to any parent of an existing MD student, for each new student that enrolls and is accepted in MD for the 2006/2007 school year as a result of your recommendation.

     Mater Dolorosa is second to none in educating our children and developing their spiritual awareness.  Our classes have the best teacher to student ratio, which means more one-on-one time.

     Through this Sunday Bulletin, I will keep you informed of our progress and I will post the names of the parents and students who receive the $1,000.00 tuition credit, and how many credits they receive.

     We have a great school here at MD, and with your continued involvement, we will continue to build it up for many years to come.  Now let’s see just who can get out there and promote Mater Dolorosa School. 

     This tuition credit policy will run from June 24th to August 28th, the first day of school

                       Good luck to all!—Father Brian.
