Respect Life
Life, particularly human life, is the possession of God alone: therefore one who attacks human life,
in some way lifts his hand against God Himself.
The Gospel of Life, 9







The Discovering Christ series will begin on June 8 in the Library at 7:00PM.

This is a small-group discussion course that will answer today’s questions about how the life and teachings of Jesus Christ provide guidance and direction to those looking to explore. Parishioners with friends or family who are curious about becoming Catholic, finishing their sacraments, or returning to their Catholic Faith are encouraged to invite them to this series. Contact Linda Kortuem:925-634-4154 x117 or email: lkortuem@ihmbrentwood.com
