5th Sunday of Lent
Next Sunday is Palm Sunday and the
beginning of Holy Week. The blessing
and distribution of palms will take place
at all weekend Masses with the outdoor
blessing of palms and procession at the
10:30 a.m. Mass. The reading of the
Lord’s Passion according to Matthew
will take place at all Masses.
Please note that there are no Confessions on Holy Saturday,
The Parish Office will be closed on Good Friday, April
17 and also on Easter Monday, April 21.
Thank you to all who participated in the Lenten miniretreat
sponsored by the Women of St. Timothy on Saturday,
March 29. I hope those who attended will have
much to reflect on and share with others through the rest
of Lent and beyond.
There is still time to return your 2014 Annual Catholic
Appeal pledge. Envelopes are still available in church
and in the parish office.
The Chrism Mass will take place at Good Shepherd in
Mira Mesa this Thursday, April 10 at 4:00 p.m. At this
annual liturgy the Sacred Chrism, the Oil of the Catechumens,
and the Oil of the Sick will be blessed by Bishop
Flores and then distributed for use throughout the Diocese
of San Diego.
Yours in the Lord,
Fr. Fernando Ramirez, Pastor
