The Light is On for You

TheLightIsOnForYou-2lines-onwhite-printEvery Wednesday evening during Lent, the churches of the Diocese of San Jose open their doors to you! The freedom, mercy, and light of Jesus Christ await you through the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  Come and receive healing through Christ.  Bring a friend along to receive as well.  It does not matter how long it has been since you last received the sacrament.

Here at Church of the Resurrection, we are praying for you and our light is on for you!  Join us on Wednesday evening, in the main church between 6 and 8 pm.  God Bless!

Lenten Journey at Resurrection

lenten-rot-banner-2017The Lenten journey begins and we hope that you make time for prayer and fellowship on Fridays with the Resurrection Community.  Beginning this Friday and throughout Lent, we will have Stations of the Cross at 6:15 in the evening followed by the Soup Supper in Farana Center.

What a beautiful way to spend the end of your work week, in prayer with all of us together in the Resurrection Community!  You can begin with the daily Mass Friday evening, in the chapel at 5:30 before Stations begins in the church at 6:15.   Our proclaimers from Mass will lead us in the Stations throughout Lent with Fr. Noel beginning it all, as he leads us on the first Friday.

We are participating in operation Rice Bowl.  St. Vincent de Paul is passing out the Rice Bowls at the Masses on Ash Wednesday.  The funds from this project will benefit the hungry in Santa Clara County as well as around the world.

Our Light is On for You – continues this year, as all the churches in the diocese open their doors from 6 -8 pm on Wednesday nights for prayer and the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  Take advantage of this blessed sacrament of healing and renewal!

Martha Chesley 1924-2017

Martha Chesley went to the loving arms of her God on Thursday February 9th.  She was at home with her family around her as they were praying the Rosary, something that Martha did everyday.

Martha, one of our original parishioners, was born in Indian Head, Maryland and lived later in San Francisco and Sunnyvale. An active pillar of our community, an Extraordinary Minister of the Holy Eucharist and a proclaimer,  Martha’s smiling face is well-known to all. She was always there to help, unlock the church early, and do what ever needed to be done to make our worship time meaningful and beautiful.

martha-chesleyShe is survived by her children and spouses, Joyce and Larry Walker, Valerie and Edward Johnson, Larry and Vera Elston, Gloria Young and numerous grandchildren, great grandchildren and a great great grandchild.

Vigil will be held for Martha on Thursday, February 16th, at 7 pm in our church.  The Funeral Mass will be on Friday, February 17th at 10 am.  There will be a reception in Farana later after Mass.

Our Resurrection Community offers our prayers and condolences.

Basketball game recap

Fr. Noel reported that the Revs vs Sems game was a glorious time for all, as the church came together in joy and fun through basketball.  Thank you to everyone who was able to be there cheering on the Revs, Fr. Noel and the Sems!  The Sems won again but it is not just in winning that joy is found. The spirit of competition, camaraderie, fun and health was celebrated on Friday night.  There were families who received free tickets from their sons who are considering the priesthood.  Below are some quick pics of our pastor on the court!
