Our Lady of Soledad celebrates 100-year anniversary

One hundred years after the second Catholic Church in the Coachella Valley was constructed in 1923, Our Lady of Soledad commemorated its vast history by celebrating a 100th anniversary Mass with Bishop Alberto Rojas on September 15.

Holy Name of Jesus parish participates in coastal clean-up

On Sept. 16 parishioners from The Holy Name of Jesus Parish in Redlands gathered to clean up a local section of the Santa Ana Riverbed in honor of the Season of Creation. The 41 volunteers spent two hours removing trash and other items from the riverbed including, a wrapped CRT television, mattresses, leftovers from picnics and encampments, and 38 grocery carts. Their efforts are a way of helping to keep world oceans cleaner by preventing trash from traveling via the river to its meeting point with the Pacific, near Newport and Huntington Beaches.

The Season of Creation calls us to take action for our common home

On September 1, the Catholic Church celebrated the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, marking the beginning of the month-long Season of Creation. The Season of Creation is an ecumenical awareness initiative that concludes on October 4 with the feast of Saint Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of ecology. The season is a time to renew our relationship with our Creator and all His creation through prayer and action for our common home. Some ideas include, holding worship service outside, using reusable bottles, joining environmental initiatives, or going for a hike. If your parish participates in the Season of Creation, we’d love to hear about it!

The Season of Creation calls us to take action for our common home

On September 1, the Catholic Church celebrated the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, marking the beginning of the month-long Season of Creation. The Season of Creation is an ecumenical awareness initiative that concludes on October 4 with the feast of Saint Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of ecology. The season is a time to renew our relationship with our Creator and all His creation through prayer and action for our common home. Some ideas include, holding worship service outside, using reusable bottles, joining environmental initiatives, or going for a hike. If your parish participates in the Season of Creation, we’d love to hear about it!

The students were up early distributing various produce such as eggs, potatoes, carrots, onions, lettuce, and apples to families. Residents of Mecca and other low desert areas were impacted by the recent Tropical Storm Hilary, which left roads flooded and broken making it difficult to travel for a few days after the storm. Xavier College Preparatory High School closed for two days after the storm due to damage to the infrastructure in Coachella Valley.
