The Bishops of California are urging Catholics to oppose SB 360, a California bill that seeks to enforce priests to disclose information heard in the sacrament of confession. We know that can never happen. Priests will never disclose what they hear in confession. We are asking all Catholics to tell your state Assemblymember that we oppose the government interfering in our right to practice our faith. You are asked to sign a letter opposing SB 360 unless it is amended. Sign a letter opposing SB 360: www.keeptheseal.com.

Los Obispos del estado de California le piden todos a los catolicos que se opongan al proyecto de ley SB 360. Un proyecto de ley de California que obligarfa a los sacerdotes a revelar informacion obtenida durante el sacramento de la confesion. Sabemos que nuestros sacerdotes nunca revelan lo que escuchan en la confesion. Es necesario comunicarles a nuestros representantes en la asamblea estatal que nos oponemos a que el gobierno viole nuestro derecho de practicar libremente nuestra fe. Se les pide a todos los catolicos que firmen una carta en contra del proyecto de ley SB 360 a menos que este sea enmendado. Firme una carta en contra de SB 360 en nuestra pagina:: www.keeptheseal.com.

Celebration of Life

Monsignor Donal Mulcahy

1925 - 2019

Celebration of Life: Saturday, June 22, 2019 at 11:00 a.m.

Our Lady of the Assumption Church

Reception to follow in the SBHS Athletic Center.

Our former Pastor, who was loved by all, is now side by side with the Lord. He was clearly very happy when he was our Pastor, but after he retired and stayed with us at O.L.A., he said many times that he was now in the best time of his life because now he could truly focus on how to best serve the people.

Please join us on Saturday as we celebrate his life.

Welcome to OLA!

A Marian Consecration – to Jesus through Mary – written by Fr. Michael Gaitley MIC. Journey in a small group sharing format as we follow Fr. Gaitley’s engaging preparation for Marian Consecration.

 Beginning July 8th, join us Monday nights to learn about what the Catholic Church, in particular four great saints, have to teach us about the power and influence of the Immaculate Heart of Mary – Our Lady of the Assumption!

 Whether you are brand new to the concept of Marian Consecration, or you wish to RENEW your Consecration to Jesus Through Mary, you are invited to join us for six weeks on Monday nights, 6:30 p.m. - 8:15 p.m. in the Santa Cruz Room. We will complete our consecration in preparation for the Feast Day of Our Lady Of the Assumption on August 15th. ALL PARISHIONERS ARE WELCOME!

 Materials will be available to purchase, on the first night. You can purchase your own materials in advance at https://www.shopmercy.org/33-days-to-morning-glory-group-retreat.html. If you do not have the book “33 Days to Morning Glory” you will need to order a participant packet WITH book – or- if you already have the book, you can order the Participant Packet without the book. The workbook is needed to participate in the retreat as there are weekly study questions for all participants.

Catholic teen conference hosted by Archbishop Jose Gomez and the Youth Ministry Division of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles
This 3 day event is a wonderful and local opportunity for young people to deepen their relationship with Jesus. The conference features dynamic speakers, diverse liturgical experiences, music, interactive exhibits, opportunities to receive the sacraments of Eucharist and penance, and more. All of this is set in an atmosphere where teens can learn and experience the beauty of the Catholic faith with its rich symbols and traditions.  
A Mission, Together

Video (English)
Video (Spanish) HERE

The Together in Mission campaign is an opportunity for people across the Archdiocese to join together - as one united voice. Thousands of men and women just like you make a sustainable monthly commitment because they believe in the hope that will be given through classrooms, from pulpits, on the streets, and through the sacraments. Will you join them once again? Will you continue to write the story of hope? And if you have never given, will you make a pledge of just $25 per month?
