RESPECT LIFE SUNDAY
Since 1972, a year before Roe v. Wade, the first Sunday of October has been designated by the Church as Respect Life Sunday, also called Sanctity of Life Sunday. For four decades, the Catholic Church has dedicated the month of October, starting with the first Sunday, to extra time and resources in advancing the culture of life. See our "Every Life Is Worth Living" display in the narthex for more resource information.

OUR NEW RELIGIOUS EDUCATION COORDINATOR
Joseph Salazar grew up attending St. Therese Parish & School in Portland, OR. It was there that he met Fr. Nicholas Nilema. At that time there was a Catholic young adults prayer group which developed in the Salazar?s house. As the group grew, Joseph, who served as its lay leader, asked that they be approved by St. Therese as a parish ministry. Providentially, the group was given Fr. Nicholas as its spiritual director. He attended the group faithfully every Sunday evening, and many graces became evident in the lives of the members. Over time five of the young men entered the seminary, two young women began the path to consecrated life, and two marriages came out of that group. Joseph went on to study Theology at the undergraduate and graduate levels at Franciscan University of Steubenville and Christendom College. His Philosophy studies were done in Rome, Italy. His professional parish ministry began at Holy Rosary in Portland for three years, followed by 11 years as Director of Faith Formation at the Proto-Cathedral of St. James in Vancouver, WA. Now God has brought Joseph and Fr. Nicholas back together in ministry, and Joseph feels very blessed to have this opportunity. He and his wife, Tanya, have been married for almost 13 years, and they have three children, Monica, Max, and Katrina. They are all excited to be a part of the Seaside/Arch Cape parish family.

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION CLASSES TO BEGIN WITH WORLD MEETING OF FAMILIES CATECHESIS
Our Religious Education classes will begin the year using the World Meeting of Families catechesis lessons made by the Pontifical Council for the Family. Their goal is to communicate the principles of this gathering with the Pope to all parishes.
SERIES FOR PARENTS: RAISING THEM CATHOLIC AND KEEPING THEM CATHOLIC
This series is for all our parents and will take place during our Religious Education classes each Sunday.
CHOSEN: NEW CATHOLIC TEEN PROGRAM
FAST PACED. VISUALLY STUNNING. INCREDIBLY EFFECTIVE. "Chosen is attention-getting, attention-holding, and attention-deepening. The superbly produced videos grab the viewer's attention with a well-paced mixture of attractive images and music that enhance the story they help to tell. The distinctive personalities of the presenters hold the viewer's attention with their enthusiasm for topics they obviously know and love. What they teach deepens attention because its content is substantial, thought-provoking, and explicitly well-grounded in the Catechism." - Most Reverend Liam Cary, Bishop of Baker. The youth meet on Sundays at 9am. The "CHOSEN" Program will have two tracks, one for Junior High and one for High School.
SIGN-UPS FOR YOUTH MASS AND YOUTH CHOIR
The Youth Mass will be returning this Fall. If you like to sing, then join the choir for children and teens.
DISCOVER THE RICHES OF THE MASS
As we go through each part of the Mass, we will explore the biblical roots of the words and explain their profound significance. You are invited to know and understand the Mass like never before. Come to a richer, more fruitful worship experience. THIS SERIES WILL BE OFFERED THIS FALL AT OLV ON SUNDAYS AT 12:30PM BEGINNING SEPTEMBER 20TH, AND AT SPF ON WEDNESDAYS AT 3PM BEGINNING SEPTEMBER 23RD.
GOD IN MY LIFE
We are having a series to help bring people to faith, to welcome back Catholics who have been away, as well as to deepen the faith of believers. The mini-series will begin on Saturday, September 26th, at 9am in the parish Hall. WHO DOES GOD WANT ME TO INVITE? Reach out and invite someone! We ask all parishioners to invite someone who may benefit. Now is a good time to reflect on the people God has put you in contact with. Then ask Christ to help you discern who may be ready and willing to take the step toward a life in faith. Many converts to the Catholic Faith now thank the ones who invited them to take that first step. They are very grateful that someone had the loving courage to help them on the path to true happiness in God. You can let people know that there is no commitment to become Catholic, nor is there ever any pressure to become Catholic. At the end of the series, those interested in learning more about Catholicism are free to participate in the RCIA classes. The sign-up sheet will be for you and anyone you know who may be interested. For more information please contact Joseph Salazar at the OLV parish office, 503-738-6161.
