1. This Sunday, August 13th at 7:30PM, we will celebrate our monthly Mass dedicated to Our Lady of Fatima, followed by a procession and recitation of the Rosary. After the procession, we will have special Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.

2. This Tuesday, August 15th is the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This is A HOLY DAY OF OBLIGATION and we will have two Masses: one at 9:00AM and for those who cannot come in the morning, there will be another Mass at 7:30PM.

3. As you already know, all volunteers who work with children in the parish setting must complete the Safe Environment Training for the Diocese of Oakland.  For our parish this is our renewal year so all of us must take the training.  There are two ways you can do this:

– by participating in a live training – available at Our Lady of Good Counsel this Friday, August 18th at 6:30 pm in the parish hall.  For those who have access to a computer, it would be a great help if you are able to register for the class yourself at VIRTUS® Online.  

– if you are unable to attend the session at OLGC, you may register to one at a different parish or take the online training.  Please choose the “Protecting God’s Children – for Adults” and make sure to print out a copy of your training certificate. If you are not able to register online, please contact Safe Environment Coordinator, Nadine Ramos (nadineramos@sbcglobal.net) or call the parish office.
