Week of September 5-11 2021

Greetings Participants and Parishioners.

This Wednesday, September 8, we will be meeting at 6:30pm in the Assisi Room. We will all meet together in the Assisi Room and then after opening prayer and announcements we will split up between Inquiry group and Catechumenate group.

Our Inquiry group will be discussing the Holy Trinity. Here is a short video from Bishop Robert Baron on the question, What is the Trinity?

What is the Trinity?

Our Catechumenate group will be continuing our discussion on the Sacraments as we take a deeper look at the sacrament of Baptism. To get you thinking about the sacrament of baptism, take a look at this video from Breaking the Habit:

Is Baptism Necessary?

This week we celebrate two important feast days. Sunday is the feast day of one of the most well-know saints, and not just to Catholics. Sunday, September 5th is the feast day of St. Mother Theresa of Calcutta. Mother Theresa became a saint just 5 years ago by Pope Francis. She is known all over the world for her work ministering the poorest of the poor. Read more about her here.

Wednesday, September 8th is the Nativity of The Blessed Virgin Mary. In other words, it’s Mama Mary’s birthday! There are so many days when we celebrate Jesus’ mom, and this is one of them. Maybe we should have a birthday cake on Wednesday night?? Read more about this feast day here.

Is your prayer life struggling? Are you intimidated to start praying? You need to check out the Hallow App. If you haven’t heard of the Hallow App it “is a Catholic prayer app that offers audio guided meditation sessions to help us grow in our faith & spiritual lives and find peace with God” There is a free version and a paid version. I only use the free version and I highly recommend it!

Check out the Hallow App

Don’t forget to check out There you will find amazing videos, audio books, and books about every topic related to the Catholic Faith. There are even movies you and your family can watch together. If you have a smart tv or Roku, you can get the Formed app and watch on your tv. If you have never sign in before, choose “sign up” then “sign up as a parishioner” and search for St Isidore Yuba City Church.

Lastly, if you haven’t started watching The Chosen series, you are missing out! This multi-season show is all about the life of Christ has his disciples. It is the best thing I have ever watched about the life of Christ and it truly makes the stories from the gospels come to life! You can watch it free on YouTube or on their app called The Chosen.
