This Week at St. Hilary Parish :
Dear Saint Hilary Parents and Guardians,
We invite your middle school student to join us for a retreat designed to share the beauty of God's plan for him or her, as revealed especially through Pope John Paul II's “Theology of the Body.”
Our kids are inundated with messages that can erode their self-worth, body image, and spiritual health, but this is not how it was In The Beginning! This powerful TOB program helps to show teens that they were created for greatness, and to answer questions like:
- Who am I?
- Are there consequences to my actions?
- What does real love look like?
- How do I balance family, friends, school, God, music, TV, Internet, and texting in my daily life?
- How can I learn to discern my vocation?
The retreat will be on Sunday, April 27, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, and will include lunch. Program materials include a student workbook and also a parent's guide designed to help the parent “unpack” the material further at home. The cost of the retreat is $45.00 per person.
The Roman Catholic Church recognizes that parents are the primary educators of their children in matters of faith and morals. As such, parents are given a guide to explain what is being taught and are most welcome to attend this retreat with their child.
The program is designed for students in grades 6-8; more information can be found at: http://thetheologyofthebody.com (click on “Middle School Edition”).
Please email JBlinndvm@Yahoo.com to register your teen(s), or to ask for more details.
May the good Lord bless you and your loved ones as we approach Easter!

P.S. By happy coincidence, April 27 is also the date on which Pope John XXIII and Pope John Paul II will be canonized, and thus added to the list of Saints in our beloved Church!
First Holy Communion Masses on Saturday, May 3, 2014
9:00 a.m. (Fr. Brown) & 11:00 a.m. (Fr. Matt)
Please pray for the 60 second grade students from our community who will be receiving Jesus in the Eucharist for the very first time during these great fifty days of Easter.
For many of them, this time of joyful preparation has also been a time of rejuvenation in the faith for their parents, who have been inspired by the zeal and happiness of their girls and boys.

The new Vicar for Administration for the Archdiocese of San Francisco:
Father John Piderit, S.J.
Please remember in your prayers a fine Jesuit from our archdiocesan seminary in Menlo Park, who has been chosen by Archbishop Cordileone to take over the position of Moderator of the Curia, and Vicar for Administration, for the three counties of our Archdiocese.
As you know, Monsignor James Tarantino is leaving the position to become pastor of St. Mark Church in Belmont, so we wish both men well in their new ministries!
