Walk For Life
Saturday, January 25
Once again the streets of San Francisco will be filled with people of faith who believe that all life is sacred and worthy of being protected. Those attending usually have an affinity with the 50,000 or so attending, to rekindle their commitment to bring an end to the scourge of abortion. Rather than solve a problem, too many times this procedure brings years of suffering emotional pain, feelings of unworthiness and addictions to those who under go this medical action.
Plans are underway to begin the day in a holy place by attending the 8:30 mass at St. Augustine. We will pray for those women who are faced with a crisis pregnancy to receive the spiritual, emotional and physical support necessary to carry their baby to term as well for the Lord to touch the hearts and minds of the abortionists to see clearly the tragedy they cause.
BART will take us to San Francisco, rain or shine. Since food will not be available to purchase at the Civic Center a boxed lunch with water is recommended. Please contact Lou Santero, 925-846-5124 or firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions or comments.

Putting Your Faith Into Action
If you are looking for opportunities to put your faith into action in service of those in need, please contact the Social Justice Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more about our work and the programs we sponsor and organize.
Eucharistic Adoration is adoring or honoring the Eucharistic Presence of Christ as He is present in the consecrated host. Because, as Catholics, we believe that Christ is truly and substantially present in the Eucharist, the Blessed Sacrament is given the same adoration and devotion that is accorded to Christ.
During Eucharistic Adoration, we "watch and wait", we remain "silent" in His Presence and open ourselves to His Graces which flow from the Eucharist ... In its fullest essence ... Eucharistic Adoration is "God and Man reaching out for each other, at the same time!"
Come join us for Eucharistic Adoration at St. Augustine and St. Elizabeth Seton. This is a great opportunity during these hectic times to sit quietly in prayer and meditation … to clear our minds of all of life’s busyness and be present to Our Lord.
