October 5 is Respect Life Sunday. October is time to reflect on the gift of life from our Creator. The theme for this year is: “Each of Us is a Masterpiece of God’s Creation." It echoes Pope Francis' message in 2013. Click here for a Respect Life statement by Cardinal O'Malley.

From 26 October – 2 November 2014, St Anthony will be visiting Northern California in the form of the very relic which Pope Francis venerated fourteen years ago in Argentina.
This relic will be accompanied by Fr Mario Conte, a Franciscan Friar from Padua, Italy where the Saint is buried. According to Fr Mario, who is Editor of the Messenger of St Anthony, “There is nothing superstitious about relics. The real meaning of a relic is love – they are a link of love between the person who venerates and the saint.”
The closest location to display the relic will be Our Lady of Peace in Santa Clara. See the flyer here for more details.
