    The Ascension of the Lord is the culmination of the Saving Mysteries by which Jesus achieved our Salvation. The Death, Resurrection and Ascension of Jesus are three parts of the one saving movement through which the Lord fulfilled his Saving Mission, begun by his birth into our world . Jesus ascended to the Father to take his rightful place beside the Father in the Kingdom of Heaven. Where he has gone we can aspire to follow. The Ascension, therefore, is the celebration of all our hopes and aspirations.

    The Gospel today is taken from the conclusion of the Gospel of St. Matthew. The Gospel moves quickly from the disciples discovery of Jesus’ empty tomb, to the Resurrection Ap-pearances and, ultimately, to the Final Commission of his followers prior to the Ascension. This commission is given on a mountain top, which is also significant. Hills, mountains and other high areas are depicted in the scriptures as critical meeting places between God and his people. For example, Moses received the commandments on Mount Sinai and the Christian Beatitudes form part of the Sermon on the Mount. In Today’s Gospel, Jesus commissions his followers to go baptize in the name of the Trinity. This commission can be seen as the commissioning of the Church for all generations, something that will receive more clarity after the Descent of the Spirit at the First Pentecost.

    This weekend we also observe the Memorial Day Holiday in the United States. This obser-vance originated as Decoration Day, a day of recollection and remembrance for all who died in the Civil War (1861-1865). Subsequently it was broadened out to include all people who died in the Military Service of the United States during wartime. We remember with pride all who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country and will incorporate prayers for them at our masses this weekend. This is also the first holiday of the Summer, so we shall also pray for safe and enjoyable family celebrations.

    MOVIENIGHT: RADICALGRACE 7:00 PM, Wednesday June 7, 2017 Brunsman Hall

    Join the Adult Ministry of St Francis to make real the SPIRIT of the PENTECOST SEASON. Inspired by Pope Francis, we are called to respond to the oppression of the world’s poor and disenfranchised. The movie Radical Grace tells the story of three religious sisters and their struggle to implement catholic social teaching in a culture of moral collapse and political turmoil: Sr. Simone Campbell – national lobbyist for the poor; Sister Jean Hughes – advocate for ex-prison inmates; and Sister Chris Schenk – the role of women in the Church. Light refreshments and beverages will be provided. There is no charge, although a free will donation will help support our programs.

    Upcoming Opportunities

    Living through the Franciscan Lens is a six-session journey through the looking glass to see the world through Franciscan eyes. It’s a different way of looking and living life that makes all the difference in the world! The class will meet on Monday evenings in the Parish Center Library from 6:30-8:00 PM on June 5, 19; July 10, 24; August 7, 21. Contact Debbie Clingingsmith for more information or to reserve your seat, by email at [email protected] or by phone (805) 574-0441. Space is limited.

    Iftar Dinner at Salam Center Mosque, June 15 In the year 1219 St. Francis of Assisi went to Egypt to visit the Sultan, Malik-al-Kamil. In April of this year Pope Francis also visited Egypt, urging Christians and Muslims to walk together not as enemies but as “fellow travelers.” In the spirit of unity demonstrated by both Pope and St. Francis, join us in this event and help create a greater awareness and understanding among our

    parishioners and our Muslim brothers and sisters. Become a fellow traveler and participate in this informal, interfaith evening as we host an Iftar dinner on June 15 at the Salam Center Mosque in Sacramento:

    • Join us for dinner at a cost of $10.00 per person. • Help serve the meal • Act as a table host • Make an additional cash donation to help defray the costs of the dinner

    Find out more at our Iftar Table after each Mass or contact Richard Hernandez at [email protected]

    How does being women affect our life choices and our relationships with others? Our culture and our church often promote gender stereotypes and defined roles for women. As seekers of a mature faith, how do we react to and come to terms with these varying and complicated aspects of what it means to be a woman in today’s world? How do we see ourselves and how does that affect how we see each other?

    Saturday, June 17, 9:00 – 11:00 a.m in Brunsman Hall

    The continental breakfast begins at 8:45 a.m.There is no cost to attend, but please RSVP to [email protected]

    To request a Mass Intention or request to have your loved one added to our bulletin prayer list, please contact SJeanay Willis Bolden, Parish Secretary

    ([email protected] or 443-8084). Send Healing Prayer Ministry prayer requests to

    [email protected], or contact Richard Hernandez at 443-8084 x114 or [email protected]

    Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;where there is hatred, let me sow love;where there is injury, pardon;where there is doubt, faith;where there is despair, hope;where there is darkness, light;and where there is sadness, joy. O Divine Master,grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console;to be understood, as to understand;to be loved, as to love;for it is in giving that we receive,it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.

    We are called to live not as one without others, above or against others, but with and for others.

    While this prayer has always been attributed to St. Francis, the author is actually unknown. The prayer does wonderfully represent the spirit of St. Francis and Franciscan Orders.

    @ Pontifex Pope Francis 05/22/17 Thank you for your generosity!

    Application deadline extended: Final Week!There is no doubt that St. Francis Parish is a special place. We are very blessed to have such a welcoming, inclusive and vibrant parish for our spiritual home. Fr. Des and all of the parish

    staff—and our many volunteers—work very hard to make St. Francis Parish what it is, and we are all grateful for their efforts. This time of year, however, we have the opportu-nity to do more than just be grateful! Our Parish Council Elections will be held the weekend of June 3/4. We all have different gifts to bring to the table but, unfortu-nately, for many of us the thought of running for election is a little bit outside our comfort zone. If being part of the Parish Council is something you would like to do, don’t let a little anxiety get in your way! Go ahead and throw your hat into the ring and see what happens! The Parish Council is an elected body of 15 parishio-ners. Council members serve a term of three years. The Parish Council’s mission is to help bring the concerns, the hopes, and the ideas of the parish to Fr. Des. Work-ing together with Fr. Des and the Parish Staff, the Coun-cil helps to discern what God is calling us, as a parish, to do. A good example of this was the Pastoral Action Plan that gave us a blueprint to follow in the areas of Evangelization, Outreach, Liturgy/Spirituality, Facilities, Parish/School Relationship, and Finances.

    EASTER STATIONSOFTHELIGHTSIx The Church celebrates the feast of the Ascension this Sunday. Today’s Gospel ends with Jesus reassuring his disciples:

    ‘And behold, I am with you always...’ In these “Stations of the Light” we have been experiencing the Gospels of Easter which describe the resurrected Christ meet-ing people. Today’s feast takes us into a different realm--the paradox of the presence of Christ in the absence of Jesus, and leaves us with the challenge of a search for a God who is pres-ent in the world. Pope Francis speaks about the Ascension: ‘Dear brothers and sisters, the Ascension does not point to Jesus’ absence, but tells us that he is alive in our midst in a new way. He is no longer in a specific place in the world as he was before the Ascension. He is now in the lordship of God, present in every space and time, close to each one of us. In our life we are never alone: we have this Advocate who awaits us, who defends us. We are never alone: the Crucified and Risen Lord guides us. We have with us a multitude of brothers and sisters who, in silence and conceal-ment, in their family life and at work, in their problems and hardships, in their joys and hopes, live faith daily and together with us bring the world the lordship of God’s love, in the Risen Jesus Christ, ascended into Heaven, our own Advocate who pleads for us.’ Read the entire article at conta.cc/2pZntXV
