We have an elderly gentleman in our parish who is in need of transportation to the doctor on a regular basis. If you can assist in any way, please call the Rectory Office at (650) 583-4131. Thank you!
In today’s second reading, St. Paul provides a wonderful one-sentence summary of Christian stewardship: Out of love, place yourselves at one another’s service.

“Stewardship by the Book” by Sharon Huekel

Dear Friends,

I want to say thank you to Father Caverte for his 8 years of service to Mater Dolorosa Church. Good luck to you on your retirement as you move on to Epiphany Parish in San Francisco.

Another thank you to the Sisters of St. Paul of Chartres who worked in our school for the past 2 years. Best of luck as you journey home to the Philippines.

Finally, thank you Bill Ruggiero for being our Parish Administrator this past year. I wish you well in your future endeavors.

As we say goodbye to these five people, we will be saying hello to some new people who will be coming here to help in the coming months! I will keep you posted.

Happy Fourth of July!

Father Brian



Due to popular demand, on Labor Day, Monday, September 3rd, we will switch the weekly daily Mass (Monday through Saturday) back to 8:00 a.m.

Please note the date and time!


Thought for the Week

Out of the mouth of babes. . . .

The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. The nun made a note and posted it on the tray of apples: “Take only ONE. God is watching.”

Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies. A child had written a note, “Take all you want, God is watching the apples.”


WANTED: More singers, musicians, and instrumentalists at both the 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 Noon Sunday Masses. We are also looking for children to build up our Children’s Choir on the first Sunday of the month at the 10:00 a.m. Mass. Additionally, we are looking for a Cantor at the 5:00 p.m. Saturday evening Mass and for an Organist at the 8:00 a.m. Sunday Mass. If interested in helping out in any of these music ministries, please call the Rectory. Our Sunday Liturgy is only as good as the people who choose to serve.

Thank you for thinking about serving in any of these wonderful music ministries!


Our Rectory Office will be closed on Wednesday, July 4th. Please have a happy and safe Independence Day!
