My eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the sight of all the peoples. —                  

Luke 2:30-31 

 The Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph 



The scriptures of Israel are filled with many stories of barren couples 

who were miraculously granted the gift of children by God. Surely the 

best known among these is the first reading from today, from which Luke 

took inspiration when he recounted the miraculous birth of John the Bap-

tist to Zechariah and Elizabeth, and the more miraculous birth of Jesus to 

Mary and Joseph. In each instance, we are given examples or role mod-

els of those who trusted in God. More than examples of those who trust, 

they are models of self-surrender. They abandoned their own presuppositions and prejudices about 

the workings of the world and turned their lives over to belief in a God who can make life grow where 

none ought to; a God who can turn death around into a new and unimagined life; a God who can, today, 

take a tiny child of humble parents in an insignificant town and make him into a light for all the world. 

This is what we, as God’s holy family, are called to do each day: to trust not in ourselves and the way 

we think things should be, but to open ourselves and surrender ourselves in faith to a God of endless

Bulletin Deadlines:  The Bulletin for this week-end was submitted on Thursday,        

December 18th because of the Christmas Holidays and the January 4 week-end 

bulletin was submitted on Dec 23, also a holiday deadline.  Please remember that when 

we have an office or Church holiday, the bulletin deadlines will occur at least 10 days 

and not 4 days, before each particular week-end.  We greatly appreciate your 

continued efforts to transmit the bulletin in a timely fashion.  If you have questions 

during the year regarding bulletin deadlines, please call Diana at the Parish Office.

’s Wishes for 2015 


1.  More volunteers for all established ministries like Lectors, 

Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist, altar servers and ushers, and 

visitors of the sick and homebound. 

2.  Weekend volunteers to meet and greet visitors and to share our stories 

about Mission San Jose. They would insure that our guests would 

respect our beautiful church and evangelize at the same time. 

3.  We have in our community musicians and singers and  I hope that they 

would be willing to learn about and participate in the worship music 

ministries of our church. 

4.  Our building committee needs to get more people willing to get 

involved with the fundraising and development of our plans. 

5.  Parishioners who have backgrounds in finance and business to get 

involved in a new stewardship committee so that our church can have 

the means to grow and develop and not just keep up with expenses.  


These are just wishes, but they can come true only if you are willing to 

serve our church. None of these require perfection from you all, only the 

desire to serve and build up our church. Already you and your faith make 

Mission San Jose a place others want to visit and pray with, now I am asking 

you to participate in the next step after worship: to build and proclaim the 

Church of God.  


Happy New Year, and may the God of all kindness  and generosity bring 

you and the ones you love good things in 2015! 

Fr. Tony Posadas

From the Muilenburg family… 

We were extremely touched by the beautiful tribute to our dad that 

was in last weeks bulletin. Furthermore the moving and poignant 

eulogy by Father Tony said it all.  The  family wishes to express our thanks and 

gratitude for all the support we have received. We appreciate all the hard work that 

was done behind the scenes to make it easier for the family to get through this 

sorrowful time. Most of all was the love and respect that has been shown for our dad 

by the parishioners of San Jose and across the Archdiocese. Dad would want to wish 

you all a safe and joyous Christmas season. And he would remind us that "Jesus is the 

reason for the season". 

The Muilenburg family





The community of Mission San Jose is in critical need for gathering and educational facilities. 

Our Parish receives no funding from the National Parks or from Las Misiones Foundation.  

Donations received will help us carry out our Master Plan to replace our humble and worn 

out buildings.  Our Plan is a three phased project.  Phase I was completed with the building 

of our Administration building.  Phase II will be for construction of a Pavilion to replace our 

Mini-Center and Phase III for a Community Event Center to replace our Parish Hall/Senior 


Our Building Fund is set up with The Catholic Community Foundation.  To donate, use our 

Building Fund Envelope or make check payable to: The Trust Company, Custodian-- on the 

memo of the check, write: “For Mission San Jose Church”.   

For on-line giving, go to  If needed, our office can assist you in making the 

donation on-line if you do not have internet service or a computer.  Please help us keep our 

Parish moving forward. Your donations will be gratefully appreciated.

Blessed are those who fear the Lord and walk in his ways. 

so this is after Christmas... 


We are still in the Advent Season.  Yes, 

Christmas, the Nativity of Jesus 

has come and gone or has it?  The 

Liturgical calendar is quite amazing if we 

stop, examine and learn the seasons.  The way I 

have come to appreciate the Liturgical calendar is to 

recognize that the seasons never really end, they 

are continuous. We have Ordinary time, but look at 

it as "ordering your daily life".  We have Lent, when 

we prepare to receive the Paschal Mystery: the life, 

death,  resurrection, Ascension and the coming of 

the Holy Spirit.  We have Advent, the coming 

of Jesus through his Nativity when we prepare to 

receive Jesus.   


Therefore, we should live in all seasons of the 

Liturgical calendar for all the seasons are relevant to 

our daily lives.  When we being Lent, we are called 

to repent and believe in the Good News.  When 

Ordinary time begins, we are to continue to reflect 

on Advent and Lent, not forget and become 

complacent as in the use of the term "ordinary", 

make it extraordinary to live out our faith.
