Thank you to everyone who helped make our Bach to Broadway program this year a success and to our guest of honor this year, Fr. Paul Sustayta. Thank you again for your many years of service at St. Andrew and may God continue to bless your ministry.
“The Rosary is the most beautiful and the richest of all prayers to the Mediatrix of all grace; It is the prayer that touches most the heart of the Mother of God. Say it each day!” — Pope St. Pius X
Today the Church remembers Saint Monica who never stopped praying with many tears for the conversion of her son, Augustine.
We pray today, with the intercession of St. Monica, for all our children who have left the faith. We cry to God with weeping for the salvation of their souls. And we know that our tears are never unseen by our loving and merciful Lord.
Today we celebrate the Queenship of the Virgin Mary. Remember in all the trials of life that we have a loving Mother who reigns as Queen of Heaven who will never abandon her children.
Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God!
Remember: August 15 is the Feast of the Assumption of Our Lady, a Holy Day of Obligation for all Catholics.
In addition to our regularly scheduled daily Masses, there will also be a Vigil Mass on Wednesday at 5pm, a Mass at 12 noon on Thursday, and at 5pm on Thursday.
Which Mass will you be attending?
“It is indeed good to be here, as you have said, Peter. It is good to be with Jesus and to remain here forever. What greater happiness or higher honor could we have than to be with God, to be made like him, and to live in his light?” - Anastasius of Sinai (c. AD 650) on the Feast of Transfiguration, which we celebrate today.
Today we celebrate the memorial of St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits). Their motto is “Ad majorem Dei gloriam,” (For the greater glory of God). May all we do today, and every day, be for God’s greater glory. St. Ignatius, pray for us!
St. Mary Magdalene, the apostle of the apostles, was the first to proclaim the good news of the Resurrection: “I have seen the Lord!”
May she be an example and guide for us today as we proclaim our faith boldly—even when we stand alone.
We are so happy to welcome our new pastor, Fr. Marcos Gonzalez! He is looking forward to meeting each one of you, so make sure to introduce yourself after Mass next time you see him.

Queridos amigos y hermanos en el Señor, Tengo que comunicarles que el lunes me incorporo a mi nuevo destino en la parroquia de Misión Dolores. Tengo que agradecerles lo mucho que me han dado. Me voy pero mi corazón queda con ustedes. Encomiéndeme en sus oraciones como yo les encomendare en las mías. —Padre Corral
