Letter from the Pastor / Carta del Párroco
Just over two years ago, the Sacred Congregation for Divine Worship approved a blessing for babies
in the womb. It is an eloquent sign of respect that as Catholics and followers of Christ, we all deserve
human life in whatever state you are in, from conception to natural death. As a priest, I have been asked
on numerous occasions by parents to bless their child yet unborn, for their health, and a happy birth.
In view of this, and after consulting with the clergy of the parish, we have decided to impart this blessing on
4 occasions throughout the year, coinciding with four events related to the origin of human life. Those days are:
1. Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception (December 8). The day on which we celebrate our Mother's conception
seems an ideal opportunity to bless the children already conceived but not yet born.
2. Solemnity of the Incarnation of Jesus (March 25). It is, perhaps, the most important celebration: the day that, being
conceived in the womb of Mary, the Word became flesh to save us.
3. Feast of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist (June 24), who leaped in the womb of his mother Saint Elizabeth before
the arrival of Jesus.
4. Feast of the Nativity of the Virgin Mary (September 8).
I hope these blessings serve to renew our commitment to the Gospel of Life, and serve as a chance for us to unite
together as the great family of this parish to celebrate the joy that brings the mystery of life that grows and develops
within all pregnant women.
May God Bless you all,
Father Sergio
Hace poco más de dos años, la Sagrada Congregación para el Culto Divino aprobó una bendición para los niños en el
vientre de sus madres. Es un signo elocuente del respeto que, como católicos y discípulos de Cristo, nos merece toda
vida humana en cualquier estado en que se encuentre, desde su concepción hasta su muerte natural. Como sacerdote,
además, en numerosas ocasiones me he encontrado con padres que me han pedido la bendición para el niño todavía no
nacido, por su salud y por un parto feliz.
En vista de ello, y después de consultar con el clero de la parroquia, hemos decidido impartir esta bendición
en 4 ocasiones a lo largo de todo el año, coincidiendo con cuatro celebraciones relacionadas con el origen de la vida
humana. Esos días serán los siguientes:
1.- Solemnidad de la Inmaculada Concepción (8 de diciembre). El día en el que celebramos la concepción de
nuestra Madre parece una ocasión inmejorable para bendecir a los niños ya concebidos aunque todavía no nacidos.
2.- Domingo siguiente a la Solemnidad de la Encarnación de Jesús (25 de marzo). Es, tal vez, la celebración
más importante del año: el día en el que, siendo concebido en el seno de María Santísima, el Verbo se hizo carne para
3.- Domingo siguiente a la Festividad de la Natividad de san Juan Bautista (24 de junio), quien saltó de alegría
en el seno de su madre santa Isabel ante la llegada de Jesús.
4.- Domingo siguiente a la Festividad de la Natividad de la Virgen María (8 de septiembre).
Espero que estas bendiciones sirvan para que renovemos nuestro compromiso con el Evangelio de la Vida, y
que sean una ocasión para que, juntos, en la gran familia de nuestra parroquia, celebremos la alegría que siempre trae el
misterio de la Vida que se gesta y se desarrolla en el seno de todas las mujeres gestantes.
Que Dios os bendiga a todos,
Padre Sergio
Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration / Adoración Eucarística Perpetua
The Holy Eucharist
The enrollment of new adorers to the St. Anne Parish Adoration
Chapel was a huge success. There were over 500 invitations turned
in, and many thanks to all those who are newly signing up or at least
thinking about it.
Father Victor Warkulwiz was a huge inspiration to the organizational team that will be formed for the first time here at St. Anne. It is
so vital to have a community of adorers, and the support of an organizational team. The team will assist
with smooth transition of new adorers into open slots where an adorer
is needed. The teams form a
“Prayer Team” of adorers. Yes! The
teams can get together and pray for
the success of this beautiful
ministry. Prayer Teams consist of
adorers who are scheduled to make
their Holy hour, the same hour of
the day, for the entire week. This
will always have the benefit of having coverage throughout the week
by at least one member of the
Prayer Team. This helps greatly for
coverage since team members are
most likely available that time everyday or most of the days during
the week. Having the teams brings enthusiasm to the adorers and
their teams, and brings such joy to the Lord!
It is so crucial to be aware of the fact that the Holy Eucharist cannot
be left alone! Let us follow the ways of Saint John Paul II as he said. .
“Seek him without tiring, welcome him without reserve, love him
without interruption; today, tomorrow, forever.
Make an effort to be there for the Eucharist, the rosary,
for our Lord.”
Saint John Paul II The Great, His Five Loves by Jason Evert, 2014;
Totus Tuus Press 2014
Thank you to the new Adorers who signed up for Adoration!
We must never leave Our Lord
unattended. Sign-up sheets are in the
Chapel or go to

La Sagrada Eucaristía
La inscripción de nuevos adoradores para la Capilla de Adoración en
Santa Ana fue un gran éxito. Hubo más de 500 invitaciones entregadas., Muchas gracias a todos aquellos que se han enscrito reciéntemente.
Padre Victor Warkulwiz fue una gran inspiración para el equipo de
organización que se formó por primera vez aquí en Santa Ana. Es tan
vital para tener una comunidad de adoradores, y el apoyo de un
equipo de organización. El
equipo va a ayudar para una
suave transición de nuevos
adoradores para establecer a
que hora se necesita un adorador. Los equipos forman un
"equipo de oración" de adoradores. ¡Sí! Los equipos pueden
reunirse y orar por el éxito de
este hermoso ministerio.
Equipos de oración consisten de
adoradores que están programados para hacer su hora
santa, la misma hora del día,
durante la semana. Esto siempre tendrá el beneficio de tener
cobertura durante toda la semana por lo menos. Esto ayuda mucho
para la cobertura ya que los miembros del equipo estan disponible a
ese tiempo todos los días o casi todos los días durante la semana.
Tener los equipos trae entusiasmo a los adoradores y a sus equipos,
y trae tanta alegría al Señor!
Es importante ser conscientes del hecho de que la Sagrada Eucaristía no puede ser dejado solo! Sigamos el camino de
San Juan Pablo II como dijo. . . . .
"Búscalo sin cansarse, darle la bienvenida sin reservas, amarlo
sin interrupción; hoy, mañana, para siempre.
Haga un esfuerzo de estar allí para la Eucaristía, el rosario, y por
nuestro Señor ".
Saint John Paul II The Great, His Five Loves by Jason Evert, 2014
Gracias a los nuevos Adoradores que se inscribieron para una
hora de adoración! Nunca debemos dejar a Nuestro Señor
solo. Hojas para inscribirse están localizadas en el santísimo o puede mandar
un correo electrónico a
ADORÉ[email protected].
Yes, I am willing to spend one hour, once a week,
with Jesus, Who is truly present
in the Most Blessed Sacrament.
Si, estoy dispuesto a pasar una hora al la semana,
con Jesús, quien esta presente
en el Santísimo Sacramento

What does it mean to have a Mass
offered for someone?
A Mass may be offered for many reasons: in
thanksgiving, for the intentions of another person
(a birthday, anniversary or health), or, as is most
common, for the repose of the soul.
