We have just learned that Sr. Mary Gallagher died in February at a nursing facility in England. Sr. Mary was among the first of the Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Mary to come to St. Jerome when the parish school opened and later served as its Principal. She also served as Pastoral Assistant for several years under Fr. Don Osuna. During that time, Sr. Mary, who was a trained spiritual director, founded the parish RCIA Team. In addition, she worked for short periods at two other parishes in the Oakland Diocese and on in Sacramento.

This retreat is an opportunity to reflect on life and faith while considering new career, job, work and/or retirement possibilities. Activities include discussions, presentations, individual consultation, journaling, the Strong Interest Inventory and aspects of Ignatian Spirituality. Participants will clarify work/life objectives and address fears of transition while experiencing imaginative ways to explore their Christian faith.

From EWTN Facebook page re: kidnapping on March 1, 2015.
Urgent prayer request from Sister Monica, Daughter of Charity in Paris: “Members of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul in Syria were kidnapped, along with their wives and children. The children were isolated and put into cages. Adults who do not deny their faith will be decapitated, and their children burned alive in the cages. Let us remain fervently united in prayer, and have as our intention the welfare of all brothers and sisters in our Christian faith who are being held hostage. Mother Mary, please console them, and protect them all from harm! O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.” EWTN Prayer Warriors, please share this with everyone you know.
