Pastor's Perspective: A moment and a message in the aftermath of the synagogue tragedy

Oct. 28 was supposed to be a festival day in our congregation. The sanctuary had been decorated for the day. Two trumpet players were scheduled to play. Our talented organist, who had been on leave, was back. The bells would play and the choir sing. But as I put on my robes that morning, they felt oddly out of place – as if I should be vesting in black. Violence had struck again.

Renard

Event celebrates arrival of French pastor

The French Catholic community has scheduled a “Beaujolais Nouveau” wine and cheese event 6:30-8:30 p.m. Nov. 16 at St. Nicholas Hall, 473 Lincoln Ave., Los Altos.

Proceeds from the event will contribute to establishing the newly hired French-speaking priest in the parish, the Rev. Michel Renard. Renard arrived in August from France on a three-year visa through the Diocese of San Jose. Bishop Patrick McGrath nominated him as parochial vicar at St. Nicholas and St. William parishes and chaplain for the French-speaking community.
