EVEN MORE MASSES FOR EASTER NEXT YEAR!
Due to the wonderfully large number of people who join us for Easter Sunday each year, your Pastoral Staff members have decided to add a Mass at one o'clock in the afternoon, to make the church less crowded, and to give people the chance to enjoy our celebration of the Lord's Resurrection even more.
So, on April 20, 2014, our Easter Sunday schedule of Masses will be:
- 7:30 a.m. - Fr. Brown
- 9:00 a.m. - Fr. Matt with our Children's Choir
- 11:00 a.m. - Fr. Brown with our Scola Cantorum
- 1:00 p.m. - Fr. Matt with Organist and Cantors
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SISTER CLAIRE!
Congratulations to Dominican Sister Claire Maher, O.P., who celebrated her 105th birthday on Thursday, November 15, 2012. She and her fellow Dominicans founded Our Lady of Mercy School (Daly City) in the 1950s and OLM's new preschool just opened, named after her: "Sister Claire's Preschool." Sister was present for the dedication and blessing, and she addressed the happy crowd! (Among her family members were her brother, Rather Ray Maher, and her brother, Bishop Leo Maher, both deceased.)
CONFESSION EXPLAINED -- thanks to Father Jeff Lorig of Nebraska, who was with us the summer of 2011
WELCOME to Bishop Robert W. McElroy
The Most Reverend Bob McElroy, Auxiliary Bishop of San Francisco, will come to St. Hilary Parish on Sunday, October 28, 2012, to administer the Sacrament of Confirmation during our 5:00 p.m. Mass.
41 eighth grade students of our parish family have been preparing for this solemn occasion, during which they will become full members of the Roman Catholic Church.
We thank their parents, sponsors, godparents, catechists and teachers who have accompanied them on this journey of faith. Please keep these young women and men in your prayers!
CONGRATULATIONS to Congregation Kol Shofar in Tiburon
On Friday evening, Oct. 26, 2012, during Shabbat Services,
Senior Rabbi Susan Leider
will be officially installed.
We wish our Jewish sisters and brothers God's blessings for this solemn and festive event, and for the years ahead!

God bless Mrs. Lee Jouvré - and all our benefactors!
This week we received a check for $50,000 from the estate of one of our faithful and long-time parishioners, who passed away on June 5 of this year.
Given the financial crunch we (and most parishes) are experiencing, this generous bequest is a great blessing for your church, and we ask you to remember Lee in the charity of your prayers, as she reaches out from the next life to continue helping St. Hilary through her estate planning.
