St. Bartholomew, pray for us! St. Louis King of France, pray for us! St. Kateri Tekakwitha, pray for us!

UPDATE

A good-hearted visitor asks how to contribute to the rebuilding of St. Bartholomew on the Rincon Indian reservation here in San Diego County. St. Bartholomew burned in the fires last week. I suppose one could write a check to the priest who is the pastor for that reservation. Here is his contact information.

Rev. Luke Jauregui
Mission San Antonio de Pala
P.O. Box 70,
Pala, CA 92059-0070

Telephone (760) 742-3317

Three of the brothers and the father of Father Luke all lost their homes in the fires.

============



San Diego County has eighteen Indian reservations, more than any other county in the U.S.A.

Rincon Reservation of the Luiseño tribe lost its beloved St. Bartholomew Church in the wildfires now. The Luiseño take their name from Mission San Luis Rey. Historically, the smaller churches on the surrounding reservations received their chaplains from Mission San Luis Rey which is two miles east of my monastery.

I have heard that two other reservations nearby also lost their churches.

Please put information on your web site for contributions to help rebuild your beloved church. I, too, was a member of St Bartholomew parish, but in Long Beach, CA. I attended St Bart's elementary school, since demolished. It would be an honor to help you, in these difficult days.
I was blessed to escape the fire, and want to thank the Lord in a way that is His.
Thank you.
