Fr. Joe Scerbo’s Health Announcement
Fr. Joe was recently told that he has stage four stomach cancer. After consultation with doctors at UCLA and the City of Hope he has settled on a treatment plan that he is happy with. Everyone reacts to medical treatment differently so he cannot predict his schedule in the coming months yet, but he will continue to serve here as much as he can.
You might remember that Fr. Joe was originally assigned here by his Franciscan Order to develop projects centered on the life of Padre Serra, the founder of the California Missions, that would communicate Serra’s message of love for all peoples. In that spirit, Fr. Joe, during his time of illness, has appropriately taken on the motto of Padre Serra himself, which was “Siempre Adelante!” which means “Always Forward!”.
He asks for your prayers, and especially that you direct your prayers to all who are sick and ill in our parish. Let us pray that God’s grace will help everyone who is sick to always go forward with their life. - Fr. Dave

"As we come to the Eucharist and recieve the "bread of heaven," let us continue to remember that God is involved in our everyday life, equipping us to get through whatever needs to be endured. When things seem to be unraveling around the edges, let the Holy Spirit guide you step by step and know that the light of Jesus shines on you continually. "- Friar Joe Scerbo, S.A.
"The chapel is a peaceful place to contemplate the presence of God. It's a place where we are likely to hear God's will for us, to find the direction our life needs, to experience God's love, and to return to our world renewed and refreshed." - Fr. Dave Heney
