Deacon Alvin Yu’s Homily for the 4th Sunday of Easter (April 16, 2016)

Deacon Alvin Yu was one of the candidates from the Archdiocese of San Francisco that was ordained deacon by the Most Reverend Stephen Blaire, D.D., Bishop of Stockton at the St. Pius Catholic Church in Redwood City, CA on April 16, 2016. We were blessed to have been able to go to the Saturday 5PM mass at Saints Peter and Paul Church in San Francisco, CA, where he gave his very first homily after his diaconate ordination that very morning! Here is the HD video of his homily. We hope to post the pictures shortly. Please keep him and the other newly ordained deacons on your prayers!

Sermon for the 4th Sunday of Advent (Dec. 20, 2015)

We have had recent requests for sermons (particularly given by traditional priests) to be posted on our blog; and to the extent of which we can, we hope to be able to put this out more often. Here is the sermon for the 4th Sunday of Advent (December 20, 2015), given by the Rev. Canon Olivier Meney, Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest, at St. Margaret Mary’s Church in Oakland, California, USA.

We were blessed to have the presence of the Most Reverend Michael C. Barber, SJ, Bishop of Oakland, at St. Margaret Mary’s for the launching of the diocese’s Reclaiming Christ’s Mission Together Campaign on March 6, 2015. This special endeavor aims to strengthen and stabilize the diocese’s long-term financial footing, increase funding for parish projects and needs, and demonstrate sound stewardship over the gifts the diocese has already received. Both Fr. Rafal Duda (Parochial Administrator of St. Margaret Mary’s) and Canon Olivier Meney (Episcopal Delegate for the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite in the Diocese of Oakland) were also there to welcome the bishop.
