Parish Mission

September 21st, 22nd and 23rd

All are welcome! Do not miss this wonderful opportunity! For more information on our speakers see their website: www.thefiveloaves.com

From Here to Holiness is a Parish Mission inviting us to discover the holiness already within us, our inheritance as children of God. Using scripture, storytelling, music and process, we recognize the ways we encounter Christ in our daily lives. From the moment of our birth we are called into relationship with one another, and therefore, into relationship with God. Tom and Kimi Tomaszek present the parish mission, drawing from their life stories, and Tom’s theological training and forty years of ministerial experience. As a Catholic married couple and now partners in ministry, they offer an engaging, practical, inspiring witness of faith in action

Reclaiming Christ's Mission Together

Our call to a life of stewardship leads us to reflect on the countless blessings God has bestowed upon us. Bishop Barber invites every parish and center in the Diocese of Oakland to take part in our Reclaiming Christ’s Mission Together Capital Campaign to support our Catholic Schools, Local Parishes, Catholic Charities, Religious Education Leadership Training, Priests’ Retirement Benefits Trust, the Annual Bishop’s Appeal, and Planned Debt Restructure. This is the first Diocesan wide Capital Campaign conducted in the history of our Diocese!

Over the next few months, we will be involved in conducting our Reclaiming Christ’s Mission Together Capital Campaign here at St John Vianney Parish. In order to fully explain the magnitude of this endeavor, we will be hosting informative receptions designed to raise awareness about this project and to provide families with opportunities to ask questions. You will be receiving an invitation within the next week. Fr. Jim would like to see every parishioner attend one of these receptions. You will hear more about the campaign in the coming weeks.

Capital Campaign Update - September 21

We Are Called to Serve

We are all called to serve in building up God’s kingdom on Earth using our different gifts in different forms of service. With the Long Range Planning efforts, those forms of service were divided into primary categories based on St. John Vianney Parish’s Goals (Parishioners were provided copies of the Executive Summary of the Long Range Plan in May or you click here for the entire Plan). Over the next seven weeks a series of articles will appear in the bulletin describing the top priority action plans for each category.

Facilities and Infrastructure: take care of our parish “home”
Outreach and Service: welcome all and be engaged in service
Faith Formation: live, learn, and share the Scriptures and Catholic Tradition
Finance: create financial stability
Liturgy and Spirituality: seeking an understanding of God’s love for us and expressing our love for God
Staffing and Leadership Development: develop talents and leadership in staff, ministry leaders, and parishioners
Communications: improve communication with parishioners, ministries, and visitors
