On Care for Our Common Home (Laudato Si’) is the new appeal from Pope Francis addressed to “every person living on this planet” for an inclusive dialogue about how we are shaping the future of our planet.
Pope Francis calls the Church and the world to acknowledge the urgency of our environmental challenges and to join him in embarking on a new path. This encyclical is written with both hope and resolve, looking to our common future with candor and humility.
St. Leander Parish is having a party to thank Fr. Paul R. Vassar for his years of dedicated service.
Families are invited to play and dance the night away.
Please join us for hot dogs, nachos, and ice cream. There will be music from the 50s, 60s, and 70s & for the children, slides, a rock wall, and more.
Donations Greatly Appreciated
Bishop Michael Barber has appointed Fr. Michael Nufable as Parochial Vicar in service to the people of St. Leander Parish, in San Leandro, effective June 1, 2015. Fr. Nufable will be ordained on May 29th of this year. He is the oldest of three sons born to Renato and Marie Nufable. He was raised in Hercules, attended St. Patrick school in Rodeo, Hercules High School, Contra Costa College and St. Patrick Seminary, in Menlo Park.“Since I was a young boy, my family loved to travel the US especially during summer and long breaks. Only country I have been to outside of the US is the Philippines. I love going back to my roots and hopefully I can speak and understand Tagalog. I love sports especially I used to compete in Bowling. My involvement in Youth Ministry helped me so much in my discernment process. I look forward to meeting, growing, and learning at St. Leander Parish.”Please click link to know more about Fr. Nufable when he was a seminarian. http://www.oakdiocese.org/vocations/sems/MichaelNufable
