St. Hilary Parish this Week


Mrs. Theresa Link


Please pray for Father Matt Link's mother, Theresa, who died last night about 6:30 p.m.


She was the mother of nine children, Father Matt being number seven, and had recently suffered a severe stroke.


Father Matt flew back home to Kansas City to be with her last week, and the family was with Mom when she passed.


Mrs. Link had been here to visit a few times, and he's going to miss her a lot:  every day, at the same time, he would call her and talk. She'd end their conversations with her customary words:  "be good."

May Crowning

Sunday, May 3, during the 9:00 a.m. Mass


Please pray for the second graders of our community, who received First Holy Communion yesterday during the nine o'clock and eleven o'clock Masses.


Today they, and all children of our community, will take part in a special procession of flowers in honor of the Blessed Mother as we celebrate our annual May Crowning during our family Mass!

Quiet Time and Fellowship Time


We are fortunate at Saint Hilary's to have a Blessed Sacrament Chapel (between the Church and Tarantino Hall) where people can be assured of Sacred Silence.


However, even in the Church itself, we encourage you to be courteous of your neighbors who might need a little quiet time to pray, and also to remember that each weekday a group gathers at 9:00 a.m. in front of the Blessed Mother's statue to pray the Rosary together.


This means it is important to carefully balance the good of fellowship and the good of silence.


If you notice that people are gathering for the Rosary right after Mass, please know that you can always visit with one another in the vestibule of the Church, out on the plaza, etc., which would enable your fellow parishioners to pray with some peace and quiet.


Many thanks for your thoughtfulness!

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

Archbishop Cordileone visiting our students during his three-day stay as our guest at Saint Hilary Church and School



For those who might want to send a Spiritual Bouquet to Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, One Peter Yorke Way, San Francisco, CA 94109, we include this reminder that his mother, Mary Rose Giardina Cordileone, died one year ago, at the age of ninety: 



We still remember with great fondness that our Archbishop chose Saint Hilary Parish as his very first pastoral visitation (Nov. 2 to 4, 2013), in which he spends three days in various rectories of the Archdiocese of San Francisco, meeting with the people, celebrating the Sacraments, visiting the religious ed classes and the parochial school. For us, it was not only a great honor, but a pleasure to get to know him as a person and a fellow disciple of the Lord.

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.
