St. Hilary Parish this Week

"We Can Be Heroes"


Advent Event with

Tom Peterson

coming to

St. Hilary Parish!

Learn more about the Marin Country R.E.S.T. Dinner program ("Rotating Emergency Shelter Team"), of which Saint Hilary is a part:


For years, the good people of Saint Hilary's have been signing up to bring some love and comfort food to the homeless men who sleep in Tarantino Hall each Thursday night during the colder months.

The young people of our parish have been especially moved by the experience of helping the guests, not only by preparing and serving the food, but also sitting down with the men and sharing stories.

If you are interested in taking part, please contact the rectory and let us know.


URGENT:  as of this writing, we have no one signed up to provide the REST dinner on Thursday, December 24, Christmas Eve, which is of course one of the most important night we want to be a source of comfort and joy.



Mrs. Genevieve "Genny" Chapman - wife of the late Bryan Chapman


Mr. David Bordon - husband of our parishioner Jean Bordon


Dr. William J. Dunn - father of our parishioner Tim Dunn


Services are still pending for both Genny and David. We will keep you posted when the funeral arrangements have been made by their family members.



Please pray for the happy couples who are preparing for their wedding day and their married life together:

  • Elissa Kerrigan & Daniel Ziegler

  • Amanda De La Mater & John Quin

  • Jenna Guinness & Jeff Sharp

  • Katie Sorensen & Ken Ellis

  • Dana Nguyen & Chet Chea

  • Lili Ponce & Jim Koszarek

  • Ashley DeSilva & Ryan Tom

If you’d like to join us on Tuesdays from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM in Tarantino Hall, please contact Sister Dolores Maguire at (415) 937-5538 or via email at

Desperately desiring delicious doughnuts...?


Dear parishioners,

Lynn Reid, who graciously stepped in several months ago to coordinate our doughnut & coffee & orange juice fun after the 9:00am and 11:00am Sunday Masses, tells me we need more helpers to sign up.
If you are interested in learning what it involves, or willing to sign up, please hop on over to the following website:
Although the website focuses on "Saint Hilary School," we all know that the entire COMMUNITY benefits from this hospitality, so please do pitch in if you can.
God bless,
~ Father Brown

Father Brown's Q and A:  Sunday envelopes?


  • QUESTION:  I have signed up for electronic giving through Saint Hilary's website, but what do I do now when the collection basket comes around during Mass? I feel a bit embarrassed if I don't put something in.


  • ANSWER:  Please register with Diana and get a monthly packet of Sunday envelopes, which will enable you to know what special days are coming up (e.g., Ash Wednesday), and will also permit you to donate to the second collection. When the first collection basket comes around, put in your (empty) envelopes, as a sign that you are supporting your parish - which you are doing through your e-giving!
If it feels weird to throw an empty offering envelope into the basket, don't you worry - you are giving a good example to the people around you and not scandalizing them by ignoring the basket.
