Pastoral Care at San Pedro
Beginning August 1, 2022, the Oblates of the Virgin Mary will provide pastoral care to the San Pedro Parish Community. They look forward to building on the foundation of faith which our beloved Fr. Pat left here over a whole generation of dedicated service.
Our Lady’s Birthday
Do you remember your mother’s birthday? I have not lived near my mother for several years, and a birthday visit isn’t possible, but I always call! Special days are always special, even if the circumstances are different. This week, we celebrate the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Our blessed Mother is so special that we celebrate her “birthday” three times a year: her Immaculate Conception (December 8), Nativity (September 8), and entrance into heaven (August 15). This day reminds us that God is good, and that he gives wonderful gifts, especially to the Mother of his Son.
It also reminds us to think of heaven and look forward to the resurrection of the body that Mary already shares with Jesus. The bishops of the United States *dispense* from the obligation to assist at Mass on most holy days that fall on a Saturday or Monday. Thus, the Assumption does not have an obligation this year, and San Pedro will not have the full Mass schedule for a holy day. However, in order to accommodate those who desire to come to Mass and are not otherwise able, a special Mass will be offered on Monday at 7 PM in the San Pedro chapel.

““Always be ready to give an explanation to anyone who asks you for a reason for your hope.””-1 Peter 3:15
““It is very important that we understand deeply how good God is, and not measure him by our own limitations or think that he tires of our wavering, weakness and negligence. Our God is not such. Let us think of him as he truly is, filled with goodness, mercy and compassion, and let us know him as the loving Father he is, who raises us when we have fallen, who never tires of forgiving us, and to whom we give great joy and honor when we seek forgiveness.””Venerable Bruno LanteriFounder of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary

“We did not follow cleverly devised myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we had been eyewitnesses of his majesty. For he received honor and glory from God the Father when that unique declaration came to him from the majestic glory, “This is my Son, my beloved, with whom I am well pleased.” We ourselves heard this voice come from heaven while we were with him on the holy mountain.” -2 Peter 1:16-18
