Mater Dolorosa Catholic Church
Fifth Sunday of Easter
May 6, 2007 - Bulletin

I will praise your name forever, My king and my God.

Psalm 145


THEME OF OUR LITURGY -
How much closer can we come to John’s vision of a true Christian community in our lives today?

First Reading:
Acts 14:21-27 Paul and Barnabas reported how God had opened the door of faith to the Gentiles.

Second Reading: Revelation 21:1-5a God’s dwelling is with the human race.

Gospel: John 13:31-33a, 34-35 This is how all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.

Our Second Collection this Sunday is for the support of our Parish School. Our Second Collection next Sunday is for our Parish School.

Thank you!


AS A PARISH COMMUNITY
We pray for all the sick in our parish, especially: Maureen Dan, Jack Devine, Florence Farrow, Joe Hanna, Lory Manzano, and Luz P. Valdez.

May God bless them.


Please note that ALL second collections that are not special collections will go towards the support of our Parish School, REGARDLESS OF HOW THE ENVELOPE IS MARKED. In other words, if the offering envelope is designated for the Parish Improvement Fund, the money donated will go to the school. This will be the case until December 23, 2007. All second collection Parish Envelopes for 2008 will be clearly marked PARISH SCHOOL. Thank you for your cooperation.

Since Sister Teresita is on medical leave, I have had to hire an Interim Principal to finish out the school year. Her name is Eileen Vigo. Eileen was Principal at Sacred Heart Grade School in San Francisco for four years. Let us all extend to Eileen Vigo a big Mater Dolorosa welcome.  

Have a great week!

Estate Planning Seminar at Mater Dolorosa
May 12, 2007, 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Parish Hall

Get answers to your questions at the Estate Planning Seminar. What is the difference between a will and a living trust? What is the best way to hold property? Can you avoid estate taxes? Can you bypass capital gains tax? Are there pros and cons of Conservatorship? Do you know about life support systems and your rights? Answers to these questions and many more, will be heard at this seminar. Separate sessions will be held for single and married people. The session you choose could help you create or tighten up an estate plan, be it a simple will or a complex living trust. You will hear how sound estate planning can save taxes, avoid probate, increase lifetime income, avoid needless medical expense, and prevent family misunderstandings. Attorneys Laurence P. Dugoni and Daniel Brown will be the presenters. The seminar is free, but reservations are appreciated and can be made by calling 650-583-4131.


The First Annual Northern California Lay Convocation will take place at St. Mary’s Cathedral on Saturday, June 2nd. Click on to www.Norcallayconvocation.org for information. The Convocation is limited to 250 people, so register early.
The Portuguese Community of South San Francisco will be celebrating their annual Santo Cristo Mass on Sunday, May 13th, at 10:00 a.m. If you didn’t attend last year, you might want to come this year. The ceremony is quite impressive.

For the summer months, we will not have a 5:00 p.m. Sunday Mass. Our last 5:00 p.m. Sunday Mass will be on May 20th and we will resume on September 9, 2007.
