Virtual Advent Day Retreat Dec. 4: Waiting with Mary

We’re pleased to share this opportunity for an Advent Day Retreat on Friday, Dec. 4 from 9 to noon, presented by the Jesuit Retreat Center of Los Altos: Waiting with Mary

While many of our neighbors will already be celebrating the “holiday season”, we Catholics have a special gift in the season of Advent. This morning we will take as our model Mary, the Mother of Jesus, to enter more deeply into this time of grace. Together we will contemplate the ways in which our choice to “wait in joyful hope” can help us prepare to receive the great gift of God-with-us at Christmas.

Visit the Retreat Center’s website for more information and to register (cost $30).

Singing at Masses suspended

In light of Governor Inslee’s announcement last weekend regarding new COVID-19 restrictions, we will no longer allow congregational singing at all Masses starting this Sunday, November 22. However, the number of people who may attend Masses at St. Al’s remains unchanged. In these days of the pandemic, we strongly encourage you to register for Sunday Masses on EventBrite ahead of time so that we do not exceed our capacity. We allow a very limited number of walk-ins at each Mass.

In Memoriam: The Jesuit martyrs of El Salvador & their companions

In the early hours of November 16, 1989, a battalion from the Salvadoran army entered the campus of the University of Central America in San Salvador and shot 6 Jesuit priests in the head because they were intellectuals—and because they spoke against the war and the oppression of the poor. Unexpectedly, the troops also found the housekeeper and her daughter in a nearby room. They were at the University because they sought shelter from the violence in their neighborhood.

The Jesuits believed the Salvadoran poor were “crucified peoples’ who bore the wounds and cross of Jesus. They could not be silent about injustice, just as St. Oscar Romero could not be silent. Because they were the “voice of the voiceless,” they were killed to silence their challenging, prophetic words. Hopefully, their life and death give us courage to speak the truth and to be a voice for justice, locally and globally, in our country and in El Salvador, the land our Sister Community.

The memorial rose garden, near the location the Jesuits were killed, is a reminder of the promise of new life, of resurrection, for all who embrace the cross of Jesus.
