Into the arms of freedom

Dear Families and Friends of Immaculate Heart of Mary,


In today’s gospel, John the Evangelist instructs us about the value of the Eucharist, a gift offered to us in two ways. From the ambo, we receive the Bread of Life in the form of the Word of God. From the altar, we share in the Paschal meal as bread and wine are transformed into the Body and Blood of the Lamb. The act of communion affects us profoundly. We receive Christ’s very life in our own person. We enter into Holy Communion with the Word made flesh, the Lamb of God who has come to redeem the world. When we receive communion, we share the sacrifice of Jesus and we let his Word and his healing invade, permeate, and transform our very selves into sharers in the sacrifice of Christ for the salvation of the world. “Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him on the last day.”

As usual, there is a lot going on in the parish. On August 22, Confirmation classes begin. The Pan de Vida Marriage Retreat will take place from August 24-26. To reserve a spot for the retreat, email: pandevidaretreat.com or call 925-297-7282. During the weekend of August 25-26, registration for tutoring will take place after all Masses. This ministry is offered to children (Gr. 1-5) of registered IHM parents. Tutoring is available in the areas of reading and math. Registration forms will be available at the office or after Masses this weekend.

IHM, Pray for us,

Your Pastor,
Fr. Quang

Queridas Familias y Amigos del Imaculado Corazon de Maria,


En el Evangelio de hoy, Juan el evangelista nos instruye sobre el valor de la Eucaristía, un don ofrecido a nosotros de dos maneras. Del ambo, recibimos el pan de la vida en la forma de la palabra de Dios. Desde el altar, compartimos en la comida Pascual como el pan y el vino se transforman en el cuerpo y la sangre del cordero. El acto de comunión nos afecta profundamente. Recibimos la vida misma de Cristo en nuestra propia persona. Entramos en la Sagrada comunión con la palabra hecha carne, el cordero de Dios que ha venido a redimir al mundo. Cuando recibimos la comunión, compartimos el sacrificio de Jesús y dejamos que esta palabra y su curación invadan, impregnen, y transformen nuestros mismos seres en partícipes en el sacrificio de Cristo para la salvación del mundo. “El que come de mi carne y bebe mi sangre, tiene vida eterna y yo lo resucitaré el último día.”.

Como siempre, hay muchas actividades en la parroquia. El 22 de agosto comienzan las clases de Confirmación. El retiro del matrimonio Pan de Vida se llevará a cabo del 24-26 de agosto. Para reservar un lugar para este retiro, envíe un correo electrónico a pandevidaretreat.com o llame al 925-297-7282. Durante el fin de semana de Agosto 25-26, registraciones para la tutoría se llevarán a cabo después de todas las misas en la Plaza. Este Ministerio se ofrece a los niños (grados 1 al 5) de los padres registrados con ICM. La tutoría está disponible en las áreas de lectura y matemáticas. También los formularios de inscripción estarán disponibles en la oficina.

Su Párroco,
Padre Quang
