Social and Emotional Professional Development! Yesterday our teachers 👩🏻‍🏫 👨‍🏫 attended the first day of an on campus PD focusing on social and emotional needs of our students. Learning different strategies that will help students cope with stress during distance learning and when we get to in-person instruction. They also learned how to create activities that will help teach students empathy and different ways to remind our students that we are all connected through having similar core values. We look forward to sharing what they learned with our school community once school begins on Monday, August 24th! Be kind! Wear your mask 😷, wash your hands ✋🏼🤚🏼 often and allow for physical distancing 〰️. #olphtk8 #olphdli #olphdowney #olphschool

We give thanks to God for newly ordained, Fr. Michael Mesa who celebrated his Mass of Thanksgiving here at Holy Family yesterday afternoon at our Courtyard of Charity surrounded by many of his brother priests and seminarians who have helped him throughout his formation, his family and friends who have supported him along the way, and our Holy Family community who has lifted him up in prayer and looks forward to his days serving here beginning in September. Thank you, Fr. Michael, for answering the call to the priesthood. Welcome to our family. #holyfamilyglendale #lapriests #newlyordained #mass #prayforvocations #heisforyou #jesuschrist #priest #givethanks #welcome @lavocations @lacatholics

What makes a house a home? Who you share it with! 💛 Community-building is one of the most important parts of life at Harvest Home, and with this new 18-bedroom expansion, our community is about to get a whole lot bigger. It’s going to need more space for laughing, learning and relaxing. 💛 Enter the Ray and Anna Romano Residential Life Community Room. Made possible by the generous donors it’s named after, this space upstairs in the new house will come to life with classes and play time with little ones, transforming into a safe space where our residents can learn and unwind with one another! 💛 If you’re interested in seeing more of the new Pico-area house to feel the excitement of this vision for yourself, spots are still available for our Virtual Tours– click the link in our bio to snag one! #FlourishFriday #HomeSweetHarvestHome

The Mock Trial team was presented with a challenge… the @americanredcross is short on blood 🩸! What can you do? They immediately went to work this summer and coordinated this incredibly successful drive which got nearly 100 people to donate! They set up snacks and we’re on hand to make sure it all ran smooth. They even thought to provide food to the Red Cross volunteers and school staff! A incredible and heartfelt THANK YOU to #establosmeatmarket for donating their time and delicious food for this great cause! These #regents saw a need and became part of the solution. They worked as a team, brought in the community and gave back to the greater good! We are so proud of your leadership, your compassion and drive to #bethechangeyouwishtosee 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 #confidentcapablecompassionate #lareinategents #lareinagirls #mocktrial #lareinaproud

Thank you to all who donated Blessing Bags! We received so many!! 🙏🏽 Santa Teresita is sponsored by the Carmelite Sisters of the Most Sacred Heart of Los Angeles located on a 12-acre Neighborhood of Care for seniors in need of assisted living or skilled nursing services in Duarte, CA. Due to the covid virus, the residents have been isolated from their families and friends. They are in great need of some form of connection with the community like that of St. Rita. In December of 2019, several St. Rita students put together blessing bags and greeting cards for this community. We are so happy we were able to do this again. Thank you Mrs. Gallardo for arranging the pick up and delivery! Thank you again to our wonderful St. Rita parents and community. You make all the difference! #stritaschoolsm 💛💙 @carmelitesistersocd

On this feast day of St. Joachim and St. Anne, parents of the Blessed Virgin Mary and patron saint of grandparents, we thank God for the gift of all of our grandparents. May we always recognize the important vocation that they have and the example of love that they set for our families. To all grandparents of our Holy Family community, we love you, we pray for you, we thank you for your role of care & concern for us and for holding up the church with your prayers each day. Take some time today and show some appreciation to your grandparents or a special grandparent who has made an impact in your life. St. Joachim and St. Anne, pray for us.   #holyfamilyglendale #grandparents #patronsaint #feastday #gratitude #happygrandparentsday #thankyougrandparents

Well things keep on changing. We are now celebrating mass outside in the school pavilion. We are so blessed to have the shaded covering in the pavilion. This was built by our own parishioner. The first week of masses outside have gone extremely well. We all miss being in our beautiful Church building, but God provides for us always. Let us choose to stay positive. Our team of volunteers are working very hard to make sure everything is going smoothly. When you see them thank them for all of their hard work. A special thank you to Ray Emnace our volunteer coordinator. Please keep Ray in your prayers this week as he goes on his retreat before he can be ordained a Deacon in August. God willing he will be ordained a deacon August 22nd. Please keep Ray, his wife Sandra, and their classmates in your prayers please.

Last Saturday marked the first brunch cooked in our newly renovated kitchen! Thank you to our regular Saturday Loyola Law School alumni breakfast volunteers and friends for bringing a group of individual volunteers to help us prepare and serve a delicious inaugural brunch to our guests! We were honored to have Marge Graf present at the dedication of our “Coffee Corner” in honor of her husband, Allan J. Graf. Allan, who passed away last year, was deeply involved with SFC as a board member, board chair, and volunteer through the Order of Malta for more than a decade. An especially huge thank you to all of our supporters and donors who have helped fund our Feed the Need Kitchen Renovation – we are now able to prepare and serve even more food with greater efficiency to our guests! #servinghope

#dayinthelife⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌱⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Between baby snuggles, classes and group dinners, life at Harvest Home is never boring! We are excited to give you a behind-the-scenes look at some of the programs at work in the daily lives of the mothers and babies at Harvest Home. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌱⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A typical evening at Harvest Home revolves around family dinner. Communal meals shared every weeknight are a staple of our program, empowering our residents with cooking skills as they take turns preparing dinner for the whole group. Family dinners also nurture a sense of community, filling the house with life and laughter. #HomeSweetHarvestHome

We’re sharing this story for a fellow community member: “Juanito has been working at the commerce area for over 20 years. Rain or shine he is always at the commerce plaza. He makes a living by selling candy and also by picking up and delivering lunch for the workers at the plaza. Workers provide Tip money for his deliveries. It can be $1 Tip and he won’t complain at all. He’s the most humble and hard working man I know. He doesn’t let his wheelchair stop him from working. He’s currently looking into purchasing a electric wheelchair, due to one of his arms is slowly giving up on him. But he can’t afford to buy one. Please help me raise money for his wheelchair and other needs. He has no family members in the U.S but everyone who knows him loves him like a family member. “ “Juanito ha trabajado en el área de commerce por más de 20 años. Llueva o truene siempre está en la plaza de commerce. Se gana la vida vendiendo dulces y también recogiendo y entregando el almuerzo para los trabajadores en la plaza. Los trabajadores proporcionan dinero de propina para sus entregas. Puede ser propina de $1 dólar y el no se molesta. Es el hombre más humilde y trabajador que conozco. No deja que su silla de ruedas le impida trabajar. Actualmente está buscando comprar una nueva silla de ruedas, pero no puede pagarla. Por favor, ayúdame a recaudar dinero para su silla de ruedas y Otras necesidades. El no tiene familiares aquí pero todos los que lo conocen lo quieren como un familiar.” If you have the means, please consider donating to this page or spreading the word!

As we build stairs into our church, I ask myself what do they mean? Am I climbing the right stairs in my life. What about the stairs growing justice, peace and love in and through my family? During these days am I reflecting on my spiritual journey? Who or what is the handrail that’s gives me security where I know that if I need a little extra help negotiating the climb I can rely on it being there. Jesus tells us “I am the way, the truth and the life” do I trust His Word”? Our church family is like staircase, when anyone of us is struggling, we are all called to be handrails. Thank you for being that for me; I hope I am that for you as well. #AMCFamily #church #stairs #growing #justice #peace #love #journey #climb #spiritualawakening @amctnt @amlifeteen @lacatholics @archbishopgomez @americanmartyrsschool @usccb @americanmartyrschurch @familiesinfaith @americanmartyrspreschool

As Fr. Marlon began his homily, he asked everyone to do one thing: “I know you’re all wearing your masks, but I want everyone to smile. Ok, thank you.” At that very moment, this simple request connected every person gathered in such a profound way. Especially in these times of uncertainty and constant change, let us not forget the great impact of sharing this simple gift with everyone we encounter, at church, at work, at home, in line at the grocery store or drive thru, or wherever we may be. “Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.” (St. Mother Teresa) #holyfamilyglendale #mass #sunday #community #gather #courtyardofcharity #shareyourgift #smile #thanksfrmarlon

Dear Friends and Families, At Dolores Mission, we are blessed with having some of the greatest partners anyone can ask for! Even during these crazy times, our Donors have been continuing to reach out and show their support and, for that, we are EXTREMELY grateful! A few of our students made these special messages for you all before the school year came to a close and what better time than now to share? Even during these uncertain times, Dolores Mission has remained hopeful and wants to continue serving as a beacon of hope for families and students throughout Boyle Heights and East LA. Without the support of our friends, our work would be much more difficult! Thank you for your belief in our children and community! Love, DMS

Happy Tuesday! I hope this message finds you safe and healthy. Crazy times but Jesus is here for us always. Be at peace and trust in Him always. Starting Wednesday July 15th all masses will now be in the school pavilion. The same mass schedule, nothing has changed. Indoor services are not allowed at the moment, but we can still have mass outside. God is good! This is per the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. Please enter through the school pavilion gate on Boyce Avenue. Late entries will not be allowed. We will still live stream the 10:30 mass every Sunday on Facebook. Whether in person or on the internet I hope you will join us. Let us continue to pray for our Healthcare Workers and for all the sick. God Bless. Fr. Ricardo

To our wonderful friends and donors, THANK YOU so much for continuing to support our students and our community during these unnerving times. Adversity is not uncommon within our community and, whenever we are presented with challenges, we adapt and reconfigure ourselves to best meet these difficulties. Although our school year has come to a close, we are constantly looking forward and trying to address the current needs for our students and their families while priming ourselves for what may come. We know that our community will continue to feel the effects of this pandemic long after it ends. With that being said, we want to thank you for your support and belief in our students and community. We’re excited to all be together again and continue our lives as normal and we are counting down the days until we can see each other again in God’s presence! #whydms #doloresmissionschool #doloresmissionchurch #lacatholics #boyleheights

The Best way to change someone’s heart is through a broad and inclusive educational experience that expands our thinking and our understanding of the world. Most importantly is to experience humanity amongst those we may see as “other” from our selves. When we experience that humanity, we become “One.” Jesuit education sparks that change because it rests within an experience of God’s undonciditonal love. That love is powerful and transformative and that love has the power to alter people’s perceptions of others, perceptions of ourselves, and perceptions of how we should live in the world. Those profound changes are the roots of true justice and the beginning of peace. The Jesuit education continues to be relevant and necessary, as a force for the good of all people in our world. We hope these message from our students find you well during these times. #whydms #doloresmissionschool #doloresmissionchurch #lacatholics #boyleheights

Our lives are all about connections. Today was a joyous day for so many. We had our first daily Mass. It felt like a surge of Easter in our souls. We followed all of the guidelines to keep us safe. Masks could not block joy. It is true that our eyes are the windows of our souls. The Holy Spirit was forging us into a living Eucharist as we celebrated Mass together. Now our challenge is to make Christ more evident in what we say and do. Jesus we praise you and ask that you touch the wounds in our country and heal us into peace and justice. #AMCSummerChurch #community #safety #DailyMass #communion #Eucharist #souls #joy #heal #peace #justice @amctnt @amlifeteen @americanmartyrsstudio @americanmartyrsschool @lacatholics @usccb @archbishopgomez @americanmartyrschurch

Today, for the first time since March 15th, we celebrate Masses with our church open to the people. And, while we limit the size of the congregation to 100 for safety, it is wonderful to see these (mask covered) smiling faces. This also marks the first Mass that the St. Mel Social Media Team has not attended after livestreaming over 80 consecutive Masses and services. We want to say a heartfelt and sincere “Thank you” to sacristan Larry Boutin who was a tremendous help through it all, to Chris Seitz for the loan of equipment that made our lives much easier and – especially – to sound expert Sunil Karanjikar. Sunil is a first-class audio engineer whose expertise, assistance and friendship during our webcasts was a genuine gift from God. We also thank our community for your support and loyalty during the last three months. Knowing you were watching and eagerly awaiting new content made it worth all the effort. We have decided to continue livestreaming one Mass a day even after the Covid-19 crisis has passed and we invite you to “stay tuned.” Thank you.
