  • Our lives … can be so hectic at times! The lives of the apostles were also busy. Jesus tells them in today’s Gospel, “Come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.” In the midst of our hectic lives, all of us need to take some time to relax and be refreshed. May we know true refreshment through Jesus, who is the Good Shepherd. 
  • When you’re on vacation… don’t forget to go to Mass! A handy website is available to locate churches throughout the country and find their Mass times: Also, when you’re away, you can keep in touch with St. John Capistran by accessing our parish website, Our weekly bulletin is downloaded there, as well as other parish information. 
  • All Liturgical Ministers… Please remember to arrange for a substitute if you’re scheduled for one of our weekend masses while you may be away on vacation. We’re fortunate that many parishioners volunteer their time and talent in the service of the liturgy. You have a very important role, and we miss you when you’re not here!
