On Saturday, June 23 at the 5:00pm mass, Jennifer Jamison and Richard Hergenreder were received into the Catholic Church.
Already one with us as baptized Christians, they made a profession of faith in the Catholic Church, were confirmed and received Eucharist for the first time.
It is with great joy that we welcome them and thank God for their presence which renews and strengthens our community.
New members are welcomed into the Catholic faith through the RCIA, the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. If you would like to know more about RCIA for adults or children, please contact Catherine Shadduck (805) 482·6417 ext. 331 or

Eighty-seven high school teens and thirteen adults received the sacrament of Confirmation on May 27, 2018.
In Confirmation, the faith received at Baptism is strengthened. The Holy Spirit, that confirmed the apostles on Pentecost, will pour out her gifts on the candidates, completing their initiation and giving them strength and courage to live a Catholic Christian way of life.
Visit Confirmation to view the full photo gallery of this beautiful liturgy.

Discipleship: Becoming Fools for Christ
This year's parish mission is an invitation to explore the radical foolishness of Christianity as a positive force for change and conversion in the face of division, discrimination, and violence in our world. Looking at the Scripture with new eyes, journeying with wisdom figures like St. Francis of Assisi and Pope Francis, we will reflect on ways to overcome our tendency to 'water down' or domesticate our faith and the message of the Gospel, so that we can respond to Christ's call to be foolish according to the logic of the world and become wise in the eyes of God.

We take our cars in for periodic oil changes. We see our physicians for an annual physical or wellness check. The same is needed for our spiritual lives, individually and as a faith community, and we can't always get away for a retreat. So a parish mission is that "shot in the arm", that energizing renewal of our personal faith as Jesus' disciples and our parish community's commitment to the Body of Christ.
