Acts 1:1-11; Ephesians 1:17-23; Matthew 28: 16-20. In the first reading, Jesus tells his Apostles that they will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon them, and then he ascends into heaven. In his Letter to the Ephesians, Saint Paul affirms the hope enjoyed by all who believe in the promise and power of Christ. In Matthew’s Gospel, Jesus commissions the Apostles to make disciples of all nations, and assures them that he will be with them, always, until the end of the age.


Ascensione del Signore

L’Ascensione inaugural la missione della Chiesa. Il Signore Gesù, accolto nella Gloria del padre, ma nascosto alla nostra vista sensibile, abita in noi spiritualmente e continua con noi l’opera di salvezza, dichiarando che siamo destinati all vita eterna

Monthly Gatherings for Men Discerning a Priestly Vocation: These are discontinued for now, but the email address are valid for those men who are interested: Our Lord told Peter and the others that they are to be Fishers of Men! “Interested in knowing more about the priesthood as a vocation? Discernment involves listening to God, learning about yourself, and seeking the guidance of others. Discernment is not a solitary endeavor. There are two options: In Redwood City on the first Monday of each month, from 6:15 – 8:30PM at St. Pius X Church, 1100 Woodside Rd. Redwood City; In San Francisco on the first Thursday of each month, from 6:15 – 8:30PM at Church of the Epiphany, 826 Vienna Street, San Francisco. The program is Eucharistic Adoration in the church, followed by dinner and discussion in the rectory. For more information, Fr. Tom Martin at or Fr. Patrick Summerhays at “We need men to give their lives up for Jesus Christ NOW!

Women in the Mystical Tradition of the Catholic Church: Women have played an integral role in developing the Catholic Mystical Tradition.  Join Dr. Anthony Lilles, Dean of Academics at St. Patrick Seminary in Menlo Park California, as he guides students on an exploration through the lives and works of the Church’s most important women teachers of Catholic mysticism.  This class is open to everyone, but it’s especially geared towards catechists, parish leaders, evangelists, parochial religion teachers, those discerning a vocation, and those interested in growing in their life of prayer.  It’s on Zoom (so you can ask questions!) the fee is $20 for all the courses, and the next one is this Tuesday at 7PM on the great St. Catherine of Siena. Go here to learn more and register:

Speaking of Vocations: Could God be Calling Me? YES!: God calls each of us to life, to wholeness, and to service. The task of the young adult is to discern what path God wants him or her to follow.

The Lord calls most people to marriage and family. For the Christian young adult this is a very important decision. Choosing to marry is not just a romantic response, but also a very specific process that includes prayer, investigation, involvement, and experience.

God calls some people to religious life as a Sister, Brother, or Priest. A religious vocation follows the same process. We call this the discernment process. Want to learn more about the Salesian Vocation? Email Fr. John Roche, SDB at
