Early October is a very special time for our Holy Rosary Cathedral Parish. In the church calendar October 3 is the anniversary of dedication of Holy Rosary Cathedral. It was dedicated on this date in 1953 and this date observed as a solemnity in the Masses here. The dedication of a Church usually occurs when the mortgage is paid off.
Construction on the present cathedral started in 1899. Sacrificial giving by generations of parishioners as well as the generosity of the Oblate fathers finally paid down this mortgage in 1953.
We have their fine example to motivate us to continue to keep up the maintenance needs of the Cathedral and to make improvements so that future generations will be blessed to use this fine building.
Project Advance helps us to work together effectively as a cathedral parish to raise money for capital projects. We hope to raise $120,000 this year for Project Advance: $60,000 for the Archdiocese assessment from the Cathedral and $60,000 for our use at the Cathedral. Our capital projects at the Cathedral include a stair lift in the hall for wheel chairs, improvements to the church sound system and funds for planning seismic improvements.
Presently we have collected $77,595 . Thank you to all those who given to Project Advance this year. We ask everyone to prayerfully consider a sacrificial gift to the 2015 Project Advance appeal. Please see the Project Advance display in the Church entrance for more information or call the parish office.
The other special celebration for our Holy Rosary Cathedral parish is October 7. This is the memorial of our Lady of the Rosary. She is the principal patroness of our Archdiocese. Please keep the needs of the Archdiocese and Holy Rosary Cathedral in mind as you pray the Rosary. Fr. Galvon

Prayer to Our Lady of the Rosary
Most holy Virgin,
Inspire my heart with a sincere love for this
devotion, so that by meditating on the
Mysteries of our Redemption
that are recalled in it, I may gather the fruits
and obtain the special graces I ask of you,
for the greater glory of God, for your honor,
and for the good of my soul.
O Virgin Mary,
may be for me each day, amid my many duties,
a bond of unity in my actions,
a tribute to filial piety, a delightful refreshment,
and an encouragement to walk joyfully
along the path of my life.
Let the mysteries of your Rosary
form in me little by little
a luminous atmosphere,
my heart and memory,
so that I shall acquire the habit
of praying while I work. Amen.

Se acercan los fariseos para formular a Jesús una pregunta
con dos claras intenciones, tanto para conocer su opinión
sobre un tema controvertido, como para ponerlo a prueba;
" , ¿ Le es lícito a un hombre divorciarse de su esposa ? "
La Ley visualizaba que sólo el hombre podía repudiar a la
mujer. El que contaba era el marido. La mujer estaba sólo
a merced de lo que el esposo quisiera.
Jesús recurre a dos textos de Génesis para situar en su
respuesta el plan de Dios para la pareja humana; " Él los
hizo varón y hembra " (Gén 2,24); " Por eso dejará el
hombre a su padre y a su madre, y los dos se harán una
sola carne " (Gén 2,24).
La Palabra en tu vida
El mejor medio para la estabilidad de la pareja y de la
familia es consolidar el proyecto matrimonial cada día,
creciendo más y más en el amor y en la madurez personal.
Recordemos que el amor no actúa con bajeza, ni busca su
propio interés. (1 Corintios 13, 5).
Es un grupo de laicos comprometidos que ofrece facilitar el
conocimiento de las Sagradas Escrituras a quienes desean
conocer mejor la Palabra de Dios. Nos reunimos los 2dos.
y 4tos Sábados del mes. Se ha dado que de ahí salen
miembros para otros ministerios. ¡ Conócenos y participa,
sabemos que te agradará !

every bird of the air, and brought them to the man to see what
he would call them; and whatever the man called every living
creature, that was its name.” (Gen 2:19) The creation story
reminds us of two important points. First, since the start, God
has put the entire world into our care. Second, stewardship
has been around since the beginning of mankind, it isn’t
something recently invented by the Church. Just as past
