  •        THE ROSARY

    The 15 Promises of Our Lady to Those Who Recite the Rosary

    6. Whoever shall recite the Rosary devoutly, applying himself to the consideration of its Sacred Mysteries, shall never be conquered by misfortune. God will not chastise him in His justice, he shall not perish by an un-provided death; if he be just he shall remain in the grace of God, and become worthy of eternal life.
     
    7. Whoever shall have a true devotion for the Rosary shall not die without the Sacraments of the Church.
     
    8. Those who are faithful in reciting the Rosary shall have during their life and at their death the light of God and the plenitude of His graces; at the moment of death they shall participate in the merits of the Saints in paradise.
     
    9. I shall deliver from purgatory, those who have been devoted to the Rosary.
     
    10. The faithful children of the Rosary shall merit a high degree of glory in Heaven.

    To be continued.

  • POSADAS Dec 16-24th

    We have begun planning for Las Posadas, a religious observance, a pre-Christmas novena, which has been celebrated in Mexico for many years and has been adopted by parishes in this country.  St. Gregory will be celebrating Las Posadas from December 16-24, 2018. During Las Posadas, we imitate Mary and Joseph in search of lodging in Bethlehem preceding the birth of Jesus Christ.  We will be reciting the
    rosary, praying and singing traditional Posada verses as the procession progresses from home to home.

    You may see a list of the Host Homes in the December 2nd bulletin.  Go to the Bulletin/News tab.

Vamos a celebrar Las Posadas del 16-24 diciembre de 2018 aquí en San Gregorio. Durante Las Posadas, vamos a imitar a María y José en busca de alojamiento en Belén antes del nacimiento de Jesús Cristo.  Vamos rezando el Rosario, rezando y cantando versos de la tradicional Posada conforme avanza la procesión de casa en casa.

    PASTORAL COUNCIL MEETING

    The next regular meeting for the Pastoral Council of St. Gregory the Great will be held at
    6:30 pm, 24 December 2018 in Mary's House
    (Senior Center).  This is an open meeting and all parishioner are welcome to attend. 
    The meeting will stress the need to promote our parish, begin planning the recruitment of new members in May and the election of officers also in May.  


    PASTORAL COUNCIL SUPPORT 

    We will enter into a new Pastoral Council calendar year and need to work on our purpose and resolve for the year.  We serve the parish as an advisory group to Fr. Rudy with a primary focus to assist and support ministries in whichever way we can. The ultimate goal of parish life is to take a fresh look at its many aspects and shape them in ways that will bring people closer to the Lord.

    PROMOTE OUR PARISH

       We must promote our parish, build-up our image in a way that will attract new parishioners and/or increase attendance. Attracting young parents could have the potential of a positive effect on school enrollments. One way is by word-of-mouth and another way would be to submit information about our parish to Today's Catholic for publication.

  •        Divine Mercy

    Eucharistic Apostles of the Divine Mercy

    “Mercy is love that seeks to lessen
    the misery of others”

    I feel certain that my mission will not come to an end upon my death, but will begin.  O doubting souls, I will draw aside for you the veils of heaven to convince you of God's goodness so that you will no longer continue to wound with your distrust the sweetest Heart of Jesus.  God is Love and Mercy.  (Diary of St. Faustina, 281)
     
    For study:  Sunday, December 16 and December 30th, 2018, 2:30 p.m., Mary’s House (Senior Center, 720 Beryl).  
    All that is needed is a Bible, Catechism of the Catholic Church and The Diary of St. Faustina, “Divine Mercy in My Soul”.
     
    Spiritual Works: Saturday, Dec 22, 2018,
    11:00 a.m. in the Adoration Chapel.
