  • Spiritual events planned in South Bay in coming months

    A series of spiritual and faith-formation events are scheduled to take place at South Bay area parishes in the coming months, beginning this weekend.

    On Aug. 10, episodes of the faith formation program “Catholicism,” with Father Robert Barron, founder of Word on Fire Catholic Ministries, will be presented at Nativity Church in Torrance. Episode 1 (“Amazed and Afraid: The Revelation of God Become Man” and Episode 2 (“Happy Are We: The Teachings of Jesus”) will be hosted free of charge by Nativity’s Pastoral Council from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. at the parish, 1415 Engracia Ave., Torrance. Information: (949) 309-8682 or necys@sbcglobal.net.

    Additionally, a Rosary Cenacle --- in which participants are asked to pray for the needs of all, and especially for the welfare of families --- takes place weekly. As part of this spiritual outreach effort, the Pilgrim Virgin of Fatima is brought to a home every Saturday, where the host family is asked to pray the Rosary daily as a family. For scheduling information, call Jane Sonada, (310) 619-4636.

    Finally, the South Bay Living Rosary Pilgrimage will be held Oct. 12 at three South Bay parishes. This will be the sixth consecutive year of a nine-year novena, led by youth with Benediction at each participating parish: Nativity in Torrance, 9 a.m. (Joyful Mysteries); St. Catherine Laboure in Torrance, 11 a.m. (Sorrowful Mysteries); and St. Anthony in El Segundo (Glorious Mysteries), 1 p.m.
    “As we witness the spiritual warfare raging today in our hearts, in our homes, in our society, throughout the world, this Living Rosary is an invitation to live our Faith beginning in the Year of Faith and defend it,” said Sonada, one of the organizers of the Pilgrimage.

    “Like St. John and St. Mary Magdalene at the foot of the Cross, we stand with the Blessed Mother Mary confident that God's grace will see us through. We just have to enter and be part of the Mystery, and ‘participate in the miracle’ that the Lord would like to give us through the intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.”

    Auxiliary Bishop Oscar Solis, San Pedro Region bishop, endorsed the Living Rosary Pilgrimage, calling it “a beautiful devotion to our Blessed Mother, Our Lady of the Rosary” that is now being promoted in neighboring California dioceses and in countries throughout the world.

    “The idea of building solidarity among Catholics in their devotion of praying the Rosary in every continent is worth commendation,” he said. “It strengthens the bond of unity among members of our universal Church, the Body of Christ, through our common affinity to the Blessed Mother.”

    The nine-year novena of the Living Rosary Pilgrimage will culminate in 2017 for the centennial anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima, Queen of the Rosary. Along with the South Bay parishes are parish families across the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and beyond. Those interested in participating in the Living Rosary Pilgrimage in their parishes may call Sonada, (310) 619-4636, or email mjsonoda711@gmail.com.
