But we can do small things with great love.”

In the year of Spiritual Preparation for the Dedication of our new Cathedral proclaimed by Bishop Vann, the people of God in our parish have a unique opportunity to pray with the relics that will be placed in the Cathedral Altar. As part of the Dedication Mass at 10:30 AM on Wednesday, July 17, 2019, the relics of six martyrs and one saint will be sealed into the reliquary in the base of the Christ Cathedral Altar. The relics are in 3 different sets. The first set consists of the relics of St. Andrew Dũng-Lạc, Vietnamese Martyr, and St. Gabriel Lalemant, North American Martyr. The second set contains the relics of St. Andrew Kim Taegon, Korean Martyr, and St. John de Brébeuf, S.J., North American Martyr. The third set are the relics of St. Rafael Guízar y Valencia, Mexican Martyr, St. Charles Garnier, S.J., North American Martyr, and St. Junípero Serra, O.F.M., founder of Mission San Juan Capistrano and 8 other missions. This third set will be here at St. Cecilia on the Divine Mercy Weekend of April 26-28, 2019.
Fake e-mails & Fake text-phone-numbers
asking for money, gift cards
Our pastor Fr. Bao’s official church e-mail address is “email@example.com” and office phone number is “714-544-3250”. Recently the scammers created 6 different gmail addresses (firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com) and 2 different text numbers (929-367-1973; 410-921-3274) and pretended to be a pastor who sent out fake e-mails and text messages to borrow cash or gift cards by asking parishioners to scratch the pin number on the back of gift cards, take a picture of the pin number and e-mail that picture to the scammers. Be assured that our pastor Fr. Bao never does those fake things. You may wish to reply back to the scammers a short note to ask them to stop and indicate that “God knows their trick very well.” Then you block both the scammers’ fake e-mail addresses and fake text-phone-numbers. One says, “Doing wrong is bad. Staying in the wrong is worse.” We pray that they asap amend and live their lives better for Eternity, and may God forgive them.
