SJV Summer Campout: Save the date for the SJV Family Life Ministry Summer Campout that will be held from the evening of July 28th through noon of July 30th. Signups will begin in the early spring. If you want to sign up early you can reach out to Margaret Garber-Teeter email or call (925) 998-6046.
Mentor Couple Program: The Family Life Ministry is actively launching a Mentor Couple Program. The program will provide new couples an opportunity to engage with more experienced couples. Each mentor couple will be asked to help the new couple integrate into the community, provide introductions to ministries, and they may also assist with questions that come up around church or family life (guidelines will be provided). The time commitment will vary, but we ask that you plan at least 10-15 hours in a one year period.
Engaged couples will be the first target group that will get mentors, but we hope to expand the program to newly married couples, and possibly to new families, once the initial program is up and running smoothly.
We are looking for couples who have been together for at least 5 years, who are well established in their relationship, and who are active members of the parish. Information and training will be provided. If you are interested, please contact Jerry Mellin at
or call (925) 787-8865.
Relationship/Marriage Enrichment Series: Temporarily postponed. Stay tuned for a new date later in the year.
Senior Social: The first Senior Social was held on April 21st and was a great success. Subsequent socials will be held approximately every month. Stay tuned as the new dates will be posted soon.
Mom's Ministry Spring Series: This spring, Family Life Ministry invites you to nurture yourself as much as you nurture others. Each meeting we'll discuss themes such as The Marriage Relationship, Our Roles as Mothers, and more. Connect, share your faith journey and offer support and friendship to other moms in different stages of life. All moms are welcome! Bring a friend! Wednesdays, April 26, May 10 and May 24th, 9:30 - 11:00 am. Mullen Commons Room 3 (downstairs).
