We use this descripon in the Liturgical Year outside the Liturgical Seasons of Advent/Christmas and Lent /Easter to empha- size the unity of the Church Year. Prior to this, the Sundays/Weeks aſter the celebraon of the Christmas Season were referred to as “Sundays aſter Epiphany”, following the celebraon of Easter, Sundays/Weekdays were referred to as “Sundays aſter Pentecost”. Therefore we now celebrate Thirty-Four Weeks of Ordinary Time together with the Liturgical Seasons. Easter being a variable date, the number of weeks before Lent varies from year to year. This year we re- sumed Ordinary Time aſter Pentecost with Week 9. We resume this period of Ordinary Time with two special celebraons. This Sunday we cel- ebrate the Feast of the Most Holy Trinity. We are Chrisan because we profess belief in the Most Holy Trinity. Jesus, prior to the Ascension, commissioned the disciples and His Church to go make disciples of all naons “Bapzing them in the the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit”. This is a complex concept, the complexity is contained in the fact that we believe in a Triune God of Three Divine Persons, as revealed to us by Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, the Second Person of the Most Holy Trinity. Every me we bless ourselves or parcipate in the celebraon of the sacraments we invoke the name of the Trinity. We refer to it as a Mystery, yet it is accessible to us. This week’s celebraon should serve to deepen our belief in the Most Holy Trinity. This Tuesday, June 13, we will celebrate the Feast of one the most popular saints of all me, St. Anthony of Padua (1195-1231), a Franciscan who was a contemporary of St. Francis. Even though we associate him with the Italian city of Padua, he was born in Lisbon, Portugal. He was aracted to the Franciscans because he wished to become a missionary. His health did not permit this and he spent his acve years in Padua, Italy. During his lifeme he was known for his great piety and aracted many pilgrims to the Franciscan Friary. He died at the relavely young age of 36 years and was canonized a year aſter aſter his death. He is most associated with the recovery of lost objects. Donaons given in his honor are usually applied to feeding the hun- gry and poor (St. Anthony’s Bread). Representaons of St. Anthony appear in our church in his shrine at the K street side altar, and as a medallion above that niche. Pax et Bonum, Fr. Des.

    From the Pastor’s DeskFollowing the completion of the Seasons of Lent/Easter on the evening of Pentecost Sunday we have reverted liturgically to the celebration of Ordinary Time. We use this description in the Liturgical Year outside the Liturgical Seasons of Advent/Christmas and Lent /Easter to empha-size the unity of the Church Year. Prior to this, the Sundays/Weeks after the celebration of the Christmas Season were referred to as “Sundays after Epiphany”, following the celebration of Easter, Sundays/Weekdays were referred to as “Sundays after Pentecost”. Therefore we now celebrate Thirty-Four Weeks of Ordinary Time together with the Liturgical Seasons. Easter being a variable date, the number of weeks before Lent varies from year to year. This year we re-sumed Ordinary Time after Pentecost with Week 9.

    We resume this period of Ordinary Time with two special celebrations. This Sunday we cel-ebrate the Feast of the Most Holy Trinity. We are Christian because we profess belief in the Most Holy Trinity. Jesus, prior to the Ascension, commissioned the disciples and His Church to go make disciples of all nations “Baptizing them in the the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit”. This is a complex concept, the complexity is contained in the fact that we believe in a Triune God of Three Divine Persons, as revealed to us by Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, the Second Person of the Most Holy Trinity. Every time we bless ourselves or participate in the celebration of the sacraments we invoke the name of the Trinity. We refer to it as a Mystery, yet it is accessible to us. This week’s celebration should serve to deepen our belief in the Most Holy Trinity.

    This Tuesday, June 13, we will celebrate the Feast of one the most popular saints of all time, St. Anthony of Padua (1195-1231), a Franciscan who was a contemporary of St. Francis. Even though we associate him with the Italian city of Padua, he was born in Lisbon, Portugal. He was attracted to the Franciscans because he wished to become a missionary. His health did not permit this and he spent his active years in Padua, Italy. During his lifetime he was known for his great piety and attracted many pilgrims to the Franciscan Friary. He died at the relatively young age of 36 years and was canonized a year after after his death. He is most associated with the recovery of lost objects. Donations given in his honor are usually applied to feeding the hun-gry and poor (St. Anthony’s Bread). Representations of St. Anthony appear in our church in his shrine at the K street side altar, and as a medallion above that niche.

    Upcoming Opportunities

    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]

    Honoring our Franciscan Tradition

    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

    STAFFING CHANGESAs many parishioners have noticed, our collec-tions have diminished over the past few months, and the bequests that the parish has been blessed with cannot be used for day-to-day operations. Therefore, in consultation with the Parish Finance Committee, we have had to make some difficult decisions regarding staffing. In order to bring our parish budget into balance, the position of Parish Secretary has been eliminated as a paid position effective July 1. Unfortunately, that means that SJeanay Willis Bolden’s last day in the office will be June 30. We thank SJeanay for her years of dedicated service as our Parish Secretary and wish her well as she seeks new opportunities.

    SEEKING VOLUNTEER RECEPTIONISTSBeginning July 1, the Parish Office will be staffed by Volunteer Receptionists who will serve in 4-hour shifts once per week. In a welcoming and professional manner, consistent with our Parish Mission Statement, Volunteer Receptionists will welcome visitors to the Parish Office, answer incoming calls, provide information, and do light office work. A Job De-scription for this volunteer position is available on the parish web site at www.stfrancisparish.com/receptionist.pdf. Training will be avail-able. If this ministry is appealing to you, please contact [email protected]

    Prayer Requests

    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.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.

    FranciscansForJustice.org | FACEBOOK: Franciscans for Justice

    Today the Church celebrates Trinity Sunday. Franciscan author Richard Rohr offers his insights on the Trinity in his latest book “The Divine Dance.” It’s a thoughtful read, and will deepen your experience (your dancing!) with the Trinity.

    For your consideration, from Rohr’s book: ‘The energy in the universe is not in the planets, or in the protons or neutrons, but in the relationship between them. Not in the particles but in the space between them. Not in the cells of organisms but in the way the cells feed and give feedback to one another. Not in any precise definition of the three persons of the Trinity as much as in the relationship between the Three! This is where all the power for infinite renewal is a work:

    The loving relationship between them.The infinite love between them.The dance itself.In other words, it is an entirely relational universe...’

    Today’s Gospel begins with John stating: “God so loved the world that he gave his only Son.” God loved, God loves. Re-member the focus on Spirit at Pentecost which was just last week... As Rohr writes, ‘Notice that the major metaphors for the Spirit are always dynamic, energetic, and moving: elusive wind, descending dove, falling fire, and flowing water. Spirit-led people never stop growing and changing and recognizing the new moment of opportunity...’

    from Bro. Mark

    A Prayer for Our EarthAll-powerful God, you are present in the whole universe, and in the smallest of your creatures. You embrace with your tenderness all that exists.

    Pour out upon us the power of your love, that we may protect life and beauty. Fill us with peace, that we may live as brothers and sisters, harming no one.

    O God of the poor, help us to rescue the abandoned andforgotten of this earth, so precious in your eyes.

    Bring healing to our lives, that we may protect the world and not prey on it, that we may sow beauty, not pollution anddestruction.

    Touch the hearts of those who look only for gain at the expense of the poor and the earth. Teach us to discover the worth of each thing, to be filled with awe and contemplation, to recog-nize that we are profoundly united with every creature as we journey towards your infinite light.We thank you for being with us each day. Encourage us, we pray, in our struggle for justice, love and peace.

    - Pope Francis, Laudato Si’
