Marriage

Engaged members of our parish, as soon as engaged (but at least six months in advance of your wedding), are invited to be prepared for the Sacrament with a priest of your choice. If you are a member of another parish, please contact the parish where you practice your faith for guidance about the preparation process.

Confirmation

Our teens, over a three-year period, are invited to reflect on the faith and what it means to be a disciple of Christ, so as to be fully-initiated in the Catholic faith.

Daily Masses

Monday thru Friday: 7am

Holy Days

Vigil: 7pm and Day: 7am, 6pm, 7:30pm (Español)

Anointing of the Sick

This Sacrament should be celebrated when someone is acutely ill, going in for surgery, etc; this Sacrament is also celebrated communally during the Church year. We also try, as Holy Communion ministers are available, to bring the Sacrament of Our Lord to our sick, and our homebound seniors.

Sacrament of Reconciliation: (Confessions)

Saturday at 3pm, until the last penitent. The priests are honored to celebrate the Sacrament of Penance at any time; please call for an appointment.

Baptism

Baptism is the initiation of the child into our community and the practice of our faith. Therefore, the Sacrament is celebrated when the parents have reflected on their willingness to live the faith, and commit to sharing our faith with their children. To help with this reflection, we invite them to participate in a preparation process.

A NEW Gloria ­

in a couple of weeks!!!

(And part of the introduction of the New Roman Missal, to be done at Advent!!!)

As you may recall, last year, St. Margaret Mary Parish was introduced to the news that a new English translation of our Mass was being prepared, and would involve significant change in the tone and vocabulary at Mass -- as the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops called it, "same faith, new words...." As part of this new beginning of our prayer of the Mass, an opportunity to reflect upon, and revitalize, our participation in the Mass, our Bishop has asked us to introduce the new Gloria in September. The General Instruction of the Roman Missal describes the Gloria as "a most ancient and venerable hymn by which the Church, gathered in the Holy Spirit, glorifies and entreats God the Father and the Lamb" (no. 53). Much of the text of the Gloria comes from Scripture: the first lines are derived from the Angels heralding the glad tidings of Christ's birth in Luke 2:14 ­ "Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests." The opening words ("Glory to God in the highest") also correspond to the Latin, "Gloria in excelsis Deo" ­ a phrase universally familiar from the popular Christmas carol, "Angels We Have Heard on High" (French carol from the 18th century). There are clearly substantial differences between the new liturgical text and the Gloria translation that we have been using. The current text reads, "peace to his people on earth," which the new text expands to "on earth peace to people of good will." It helps to know that some versions of the Bible render Luke 2:14 as "on earth peace, good will toward men." The new translation of the Gloria is a richer reference to the fact that the Messiah's coming brings the world a higher order of divine peace that only the incarnate Son of God can bestow. Those who live in accordance with God's will and receive His grace shall experience the fullness of this peace. Turning to the second sentence of the new Gloria, we notice something striking ­ the new translation recovers entire phrases that were left out of the current translation. Right now, we sing, "we worship you, we give you thanks, we praise you for your glory." However, the Latin text of the hymn offers five successive ways in which we should pay homage to God: "We praise you, we bless you, we adore you, we glorify you, we give you thanks for your great glory." In a general sense, it is true that these all convey the same idea of worshiping God. But liturgical prayer is enhanced by poetic repetition, and these five descriptions of worship do hold subtle distinctions. Together, they combine to express the extent to which it is our Christian duty to give "glory to God." The addition of "Only Begotten Son" recovers a key phrase from the Latin text ­ "Fili Unigenite." This is a venerable title of Jesus Christ speaks of the fact that the Son of God comes from the Father, yet is An eternal Diving Person of the Trinity. Unlike our current translation, the new text includes two lines (rather than one) that begin with "you take away the sins of the world," thereby reflecting the Latin text. By regaining this line and an additional "have mercy on us" in the next line, the new translation features a classic threefold structure of supplication: "have mercy on us... receive our prayer... have mercy on us." We also see this sort of structure in the Kyrie and Lamb of God.

Pastoral Council Meeting ­ Summary

Date: Wednesday, July 27, 2011 Members Present: Lydia Bustos (Chair), Luis Caballero, Frank Carey, Nina Navarro, Marie Ramirez,, Manny Genato, Alise Recupero; Father Peter Bosque, Marianne Hacker.

Beginning with an opening prayer, the Council confirmed a schedule for the rotation of taking minutes at the meeting. In this way, every member shares in the responsibility, without burdening one particular member with the task of memorializing what is discussed, and then published in the bulletin. With the vice-chair position vacant (with the family moving from the area), a new appointee was needed. Manny Genato volunteered to fill the position, and thus serve with Lydia Bustos as chair, and to succeed her next year. The Council was advised of the benefit to the Diocese and the parish in offering the small house at the west end of the parish property to the Diocese of San Bernardino, note only as the legal owner (as they are now), but also as it being their responsibility. It was offered as a possible residence for retired or convalescing priests. The Diocese has shown interest and they have visited the property. Any decision is still pending. Plans for a parish festival in 2012 are going forward. Festival Committee will be invited to bring to the Council strategy and practical plans for discussion and review, such as rides, vendors, tickets, etc. A short history of the parish festival planning and our relationship with the School Board was discussed and presented to the Council for the benefit of newer members. All members will be sent a copy of the "Q and A" prepared by the Festival Committee by Fr. Bosque. The Ministry Faire, the unanimous recommendation from the ministry leadership gathering in January, was discussed. Various strategies were considered. In the end, the Council decided that the Faire would be held Sunday morning, beginning after the 7:30am Mass, providing greater visibility to the church and the programs here. (After the Saturday vigil Mass, the Central Avenue parking lot will be blocked off, so the entire area will be used for the ministry tables, with a driveway pass-through along the southside of the church so cars could go and park in the rear.) Tables would be set-up, and manned by all of the invited ministries -- the list for which would come from the developing parish ministry brochure. The children will be cared for in the plaza area between the parish offices and the school, with simple/quick games by our Youth Group, Confirmation candidates, etc. Then, after each Mass until 1:30-ish, the People of the parish would be invited after Mass to come and walk through the tables, picking-up information flyers and such. (There will be bulletin and pulpit announcements two or more weekends before the Ministry Faire date.) In subsequent Sunday Masses, the various ministry organizations would have an opportunity to extend a specific invitation for participation, with those organizations grouped by related function. It was anticipated that our ministry faire effort will be concluded within five weeks. The Council affirmed the goodness of one ministry contacting another to request assistance in any project. Peer-to-peer contact should be encouraged, with each organization (and parishioner) being in cooperation with each other in the service of all of our parish. At our next Council meeting: welcome and introduction of Fr. Vargas; ministry faire follow up; and review of the Parish Ministry brochure/pamphlet. Meeting closed with prayer.

Everyone is invited... Luau at St. Margaret Mary! Enjoy an evening of fun, sumptuous food, entertainment and dancing! (Sponsored by the Filipino Ministry of our parish!!)

Becoming/celebrating Catholic Faith...

The RCIA "Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults" is a faith formation process of inviting adults to consider celebrating and living as Catholic Christians. Responding to listening to the mystery of Christ proclaimed in God's Word (the Bible), and consciously and freely seeking Christ, adults are loving challenged to enter the way of faith and conversion as the Holy Spirit opens their hearts as Catholic Christians. With God's help, and the support of the parish, these our sisters and brothers will be strengthened spiritually during their consideration, and if they choose, their preparation to receive the sacraments of initiation fruitfully (Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist). The RCIA is as much for Catholics as it is for non-Catholics. The entire Church is called to evangelize the inquirers (the term for those who are baptized in other Christian traditions) and catechumen candidates (those who are not baptized). As stated in the General Instructions for Christian Initiation (no. 7), "The people of God, as represented by the local Church, should understand, and show by their concern, that the initiation of adults is the responsibility of all the baptized. Therefore, the community must always be fully-prepared in the pursuit of its apostolic vocation to give help to those who are searching for Christ." (Emphasis added.) In light of this vision, and challenge, ALL are welcome to participate in our RCIA faith formation sessions. Whether you are interested in being part of our team (as a catechist, or being a sponsor for someone considering our faith), or just to learn more about your faith, please call Nancy Keegan in the Faith Formation Office -- (909) 591-7400 ext.231, or email: [email protected] Our Sessions begin on Wednesday, September 14, 2011 at 7pm. And our sessions are held every Wednesday from 7pm­8:30pm in the Teen Education Center. Hope to see you there.

Convertise/celebrando la Fe Católica...

RICA ""Rito de la Iniciación Cristiana de Adultos" es un proceso de formación de la fe que invita a adultos a que consideren la posibilidad de celebrar y vivir como Cristianos Católicos. Respondiendo al llamado del misterio de Cristo en la Palabra de Dios (la Biblia), y consciente y libremente buscan a Dios vivo y emprenden el camino de la fe y la conversión mientras el Espíritu Santo abre sus corazones como Cristianos Católicos. Con la ayuda de Dios y el apoyo de la parroquia, nuestros hermanos y hermanas serán fortalecidos espiritualmente y si así lo desea su preparación para recibir los Sacramentos de la iniciación fructífera (Bautismo, Confirmación y Eucaristía). RICA es tanto para los Católicos como para los No-Católicos. Toda la Iglesia está llamada a evangelizar a los Inquisidores (el termino para aquellos quienes están bautizados en otras tradiciones Cristianas) y catecúmenos (aquellos que no están bautizados). Como se indica en la Iniciación Cristiana, Introducción General (no. 7), "El pueblo de Dios, representado por la Iglesia local, debe entender y demostrar con su preocupación que la iniciación de los adultos es responsabilidad de todos los bautizados. Por lo tanto, la comunidad siempre ha de estar completamente preparado en la búsqueda de su vocación apostólica a dar asistencia a los que buscan a Cristo". A luz de esta visión y reto, TODOS están bienvenidos a participar en nuestras sesiones de formación de la fe, RICA. Si estás interesado/a en formar parte del equipo (como catequista, o ser un patrocinador de alguien que está considerando nuestra fe) o simplemente para aprender más acerca de tu fe, por favor llame a Maricela Cervantes en la oficina parroquial (909) 591-7400 x221, o por correo electrónico: [email protected] Nuestras sesiones comenzarán el miércoles, 14 de septiembre de 2011 a las 7pm. Y nuestras sesiones tendrán lugar cada miércoles de 7-8:30pm en el Teen Center. Esperamos contar con su presencia.

What a great experience for twelve young people from our parish to travel to the 2011 World Youth Day events. We joined thousands of young people from around the world to gather in Madrid, Spain, for the 26th World Youth Day, a great festival of faith, and by far one of the largest gatherings of youth ever. This year's WYD theme was "Planted and built up in Jesus Christ, firm in the faith" (cf. Col 2:7). In his message, the Holy Father underscored the importance of passing on to today's generation of young people "solid points of reference" that can help them make positive choices on which they can build their lives. This message and the many other encounters our group had with God and the Holy Spirit was amazing and very impactful on all of our lives. As young pilgrims we were able to share our faith and be reacquainted with the Gospel. Also, we received the blessings of being with many different cultures. This interaction was inspiring to us because we know we played a part, like all pilgrims, in spreading peace, tolerance and love throughout the world from our participation.

Bringing Teens Closer to Christ through Prayer, Friendship, and Fun

All events are in the teen center on Sundays after the 5:00pm youth Mass and end at 8:30pm.

NEW PARTICIPANT PARENT ORIENTATION

Thursday, September 29th 7-8pm

Dear Confirmation Parents, Your son or daughter is about to start the wonderful journey toward receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation. This is an exceptional time in your child's life where they will be given a special grace during the Sacrament of Confirmation that will set them apart for a mission to share their faith and love for our lord Jesus Christ. Here at St. Margaret Mary's we would like to encourage you to embrace this time in your child's life. It is inspiring to be an integral part of this experience, but in all ways, parents are the first teachers of their child. By actively participating in the journey of confirmation you enable your child to have a greater awareness of the joys and challenges of their faith. I anticipate a wonderful year celebrating our faith and the joys that come with journeying through confirmation. Joe Chiuppi, Confirmation Coordinator

Parents only
