Silicon Valley Prayer Breakfast speakers spin inspiring tales of faith

Henry Kaestner addresses the Silicon Valley Prayer Breakfast audience last week.

For Connie Segreto, it took a troubled childhood and equally troubling divorce. For Henry Kaestner, it took the hollow taste of financial success.

Both speakers at the 22nd annual Silicon Valley Prayer Breakfast, held April 1, found what they said was true belief in God as a result of their experiences.


Perfect love: God created us for relationship, not religion

God knew how it would all go from the very beginning. At the center of His creation would be love, followed closely by freedom. But the cost would be greater than we could imagine, or ever deserve.

Prayer Breakfast features Christian testimonies

The 22nd annual Silicon Valley Prayer Breakfast is scheduled 7-8:30 a.m. Friday at the Santa Clara Hyatt Regency, 5101 Great American Parkway.

The breakfast, founded by a group of Los Altos residents and organized by volunteers, presents speakers with inspiring Christian testimonies.

Holy Week commemorates moments in Jesus' final days

 

If you hadn’t noticed, this week is Holy Week for most Christians. Orthodox Christians celebrate a week later, but most Christians celebrate a number of moments in the final week of Jesus’ life.

New pastor prioritizes alignment between local Catholic parishes


The Los Altos faith community has welcomed a new pastor for St. Nicholas and St. William Catholic parishes.

When the decision was made that the separate parishes would be directed by one pastor rather than the traditional two, the San Jose Diocese Bishop Patrick McGrath appointed Bishop Thomas A. Daly pastor of the two Los Altos parishes July 1, 2014, and designated the Rev. John Poncini to assist him as parochial vicar. The two encountered the recent reorganization of the individual parishes and the controversy and objections the new arrangement ignited among congregants.
