The Advent Season stirs up our desire for the coming of the Lord Jesus and His kingdom.

Join me in praying for the Nation’s elected officials and judges asking our Lord Jesus to grant them the wisdom, mercy, and fortitude to foster a consistent culture of life in American society. We must imagine a society without abortion, praying that the beauty of the gospel will guide the hearts and minds of the Supreme Court and the Congress.

The Supreme Court of the United States will hear oral arguments Wednesday on the appeals case of Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. The case is the most significant pro-life case in decades. All those involved need our prayers.

Do not respond to the imposter.

It’s the Christmas season and social engineered attacks such as email phishing and text message scams are starting to appear in greater frequency.

Fraudsters are leveraging the opportunity to collect personal and/or corporate information by sending emails that lure unsuspecting victims to click on web links to nefarious websites or attachments. The attachments (such as PDF or Word documents) may be embedded with malware.  The documents or links may also ask for your email or network credentials to authenticate to your account.  DON’T BE TRICKED INTO DIVULGING YOUR PASSWORD, ACCOUNT INFO, or PERSONAL INFORMATION!

Dear Friends in Christ:

There is no mandate regarding student COVID-19 vaccinations being enforced at this time in our Catholic parochial schools. With prudent public safety protocols, we have been able to limit the spread of this virus in our communities.

The State Administration’s plan to add the COVID-19 vaccination to the list of mandatory vaccinations for students to enter public or private schools in the state, as currently proposed, would be contingent on full FDA approval of the vaccine for children and would need to allow for both a medical and personal belief exemption. Personal or medical exemptions included in the regulations for the COVID-19 vaccination will be honored at Catholic parochial schools in the Diocese of Sacramento.
