For more Church events and announcements, Please see the weekly bulletin, visit the Blessed Sacrament Website or contact the Church Office. And now, we will read an approved message from the California Catholic Conference and the San Bernardino Diocese: [READ THE ATTACHED BULLETIN ANNOUNCEMENT ON THE NEXT PAGE] Bulletin Announcement For October 16, 2022 VOTE “NO” ON PROPOSITION 1 Proposition 1 is a worst-case scenario for abortion in California. It is an expensive and misleading ballot measure that allows unlimited late-term abortions — for any reason, at any time, even moments before birth, paid for by tax dollars. Remember Prop 1 isn’t needed. Sadly, California already has some of the most permissive abortion laws in the nation that would remain in effect without the amendment, including our current limit on late-term abortions that are permitted only for the life and health of the mother. Prop 1 destroys this common-sense limit. Do you know someone facing an unexpected or difficult pregnancy, in need of prenatal care, or support with young children? Our local pregnancy helpline here in Yucca Valley is 760-369-8512. WE HAVE A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT FROM OUR TEEN YOUTH MINISTRY.

It is an expensive and misleading ballot measure that allows unlimited late-term abortions — for any reason, at any time, even moments before birth, paid for by tax dollars. Remember Prop 1 isn’t needed. Sadly, California already has some of the most permissive abortion laws in the nation that would remain in effect without the amendment, including our current limit on late-term abortions that are permitted only for the life and health of the mother. Prop 1 destroys this common-sense  limit.  Don’t forget! Election Day is Tuesday November 8th. If you vote by mail, your ballot must be postmarked on or before election day. November Birthday & Anniversary Blessings

Announcements for The Twenty-Eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time No Second Collection. A letter from Bishop Alberto Rojas Dear Brothers and Sisters: We are once again witnessing tragic bloodshed in the Holy Land following the attacks of the Hamas group on Israel beginning last weekend. Our hearts ache at the sight of so much loss of innocent life, especially in a place so meaningful to our faith. It is the Holiest of ground, where the Lord Jesus was born and where the Gospel truly unfolded. This death and destruction is not what God wants for His children. I echo the words of Pope Francis in calling for an end to the attacks and the weapons that are claiming human lives that God holds so precious. I also call on the Catholic Faithful in our Diocese to join in solidarity with people of faith all over the world for a Day of Prayer and Fasting on October, 17. Let us bring our lamentations and our hopes for peace to God, for we can do nothing to change this situation without His power and His grace. Thank you for your attention to this matter and may God bless you. -Bishop Alberto Rojas SEE OVER → Next weekend, Saturday, October 21st and Sunday, 22nd we observe World Mission Sunday.

It is an expensive and misleading ballot measure that allows unlimited late-term abortions — for any reason, at any time, even moments before birth, paid for by tax dollars.Prop 1 isn’t needed. Sadly, California already has some of the most permissive abortion laws in the nation that would remain in effect without the amendment, including our current limit on late-term abortions that are permitted only for the life and health of the mother. Prop 1 destroys this common-sense limit. California does not limit state spending on abortion, and with thousands more traveling from other states, the cost will be in the hundreds of millions. Don’t hand lawmakers a blank check to pay for abortions, and don’t let them make California an “abortion sanctuary.”During this month of Respect Life, the bishops of California are inviting all Catholics to engage in prayer and fasting to end abortion and for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit to form the minds and hearts of California citizens to defeat Prop 1. Do you know someone facing an unexpected or difficult pregnancy, in need of prenatal care, or support with young children? Our local pregnancy helpline here in Yucca Valley is 760-369-8512.

The Blessed Sacrament Scrip Program continues to sell Scrip Gift Cards after Mass on the patio, in the Church Office, and securely online through the Blessed Sacrament Website. By now, many of you know that Proposition 1 has passed in California. We will read a special message from Bishop Alberto Rojas. [READ ATTACHED LETTER FROM BISHOP ROJAS] And now we have a special Announcement from Cindy
Brothers and Sisters in Christ, Peace and well-being to you and your families. May God continue to keep you in His abundant grace and loving care. We have received the unfortunate news that Proposition 1 was passed by California voters. Our Diocese and our Church throughout the state fought this dangerous, expensive, and unnecessary proposition with great passion. I want to offer my heartfelt gratitude to all our parishes, schools, ministries and apostolic groups for their efforts to speak out against Proposition 1 and urge a ‘No’ vote. We are surely saddened by the outcome of the vote on Proposition 1 because we know it will only further promote a culture of death in California. At the same time, we need to recognize that the No on Prop. 1 campaign brought us together in a beautiful demonstration of advocacy for life. We were reminded once again of the preciousness of every human life in God’s eyes and that we have a responsibility to defend life from conception to natural death. There is momentum in our communities of faith on the issue of Life. Let us keep it going! Equally important is our continuing commitment to support women, children and families, both practically and pastorally. The “We Were Born Ready” campaign continues as we have much to say and do for women and families who are facing unplanned pregnancies. In our Catholic faith being Pro Life means being Pro Family and Pro Woman. There is much that continues to happen in our state and our nation on the matter of abortion. So, with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we will surely be called upon in the days to come to advocate for the most vulnerable among us. You have my deepest prayers and thanks for all that you have done and continue to do for the cause of Life! In Christ’s Love, Bishop Alberto Rojas

As Catholics, we are called to cherish, defend, and protect those who are most vulnerable from the beginning to the end of their lives, and at every point in between. During the month of October, the Church asks us to reflect more deeply on the dignity of human life. The theme for 2023’s Respect Life Month is Eucharistic and Radical Solidarity. The Eucharist fortifies us in our response against the culture of death so that every life from conception to natural death is respected, protected, and supported in the Body of Christ, His Church. We will have a special Second Collection for the Sanctity of Human Life, next weekend Saturday, September 30th and Sunday October 1st. On Wednesday, October 4th at 11:00 AM a funeral Mass will be celebrated for Dean Rodney Mirabal (Dino).

And now, we will read an approved message from the California Catholic Conference and the San Bernardino Diocese: [READ THE ATTACHED BULLETIN ANNOUNCEMENT ON THE NEXT PAGE] Bulletin Announcement For October 30, 2022 VOTE “NO” ON PROPOSITION 1 Proposition 1 is a worst-case scenario for abortion in California. It is an expensive and misleading ballot measure that allows unlimited late-term abortions — for any reason, at any time, even moments before birth, paid for by tax dollars. Remember Prop 1 isn’t needed. Sadly, California already has some of the most permissive abortion laws in the nation that would remain in effect without the amendment, including our current limit on late-term abortions that are permitted only for the life and health of the mother. Prop 1 destroys this common-sense limit. Don’t forget! If you vote by mail, your ballot must be postmarked on or before election day. Our local pregnancy helpline here in Yucca Valley is here to help if you or someone you know is facing an unexpected or difficult pregnancy, in need of prenatal care, or support with young children. You can reach this helpline by calling 760-369-8512. ​​Mass Intentions for The Thirty-First Sunday in Ordinary Time
