"Let the little ones come to me. . . . . And he took them in his arms and blessed them, laying his hands upon them."
Do I ever become discouraged by my weaknesses and hide from the Lord?
My Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer to You my entire heart, including the littlest, weakest parts. Increase my confidence in Your mercy and love for me.

St. Francis of Assisi Feast Day
Last Thursday, October 4th, our Parish community celebrated the Feast of Saint Francis. Our students gathered at the upper yard for a prayer service led by our Student Council and Father Doming. Parishioners and family members also came with their pets for the Blessing of the Animals. We saw lots of family pets including pictures of those who were not able to make it the blessing. What a great way to celebrate the feast day of the patron saint of the City of San Francisco, Saint Francis of Assisi!
