Remember to vote Nov. 4 The Board of Directors of the San Miguel Resource Connection made a decision the quarterly meeting in October that we wish to remain a neutral entity in the community and not become involved in any political arena. After reviewing my posting of "political" campaign statements on Discover San Miguel, the SMRC Board of Directors asked me to discontinue inclusion of any political statements on our website. Therefore, all political statements have been removed. I apologize if anyone was offended.

History Project Did you know there was a train wreck in San Miguel in the 1957's that destroyed part of a well known eating place. It was across from north end of the Mission where there is now a fence perpendicular to the railroad tracks close to the location of what was the Green Parrot Cafe.
Alex Madonna moving equipment was crossing the railroad, at what is now the Schmitz driveway, and was hit by the train. The train was carrying sugar beets and it was derailed smashing into the Green Parrot Cafe.
Mary and Martha
a Contemplative and Active Women's Seminar offered at Mission San Miguel Parish
Saturday, November 15, 2014 9 am to 4:30 pm
This wonderful day will begin with Mass in the Mission Church at 9:00 am and will continue in the Parish Center or Hall depending on the response and RSVPs received. Our guest speaker will be Sister Susan Blomstad who has been a Franciscan Sister for 50 years with 23 years experience in retreat ministry. She will offer two presentations centered on the story of Mary and Martha in the Gospel of Luke. Reflections will revolve around the challenge we all have to become a contemplative in action (or an active Contemplative). We will “practice” a form of Lectio Divina which is an effective way to enter into the gospel story in a personal way and allow Jesus to speak again through the story. This, as well as other presentations throughout the day have been developed to help nurture the contemplative values and active principles that we share. The event is open to all women interested in enriching their faith. For more information, or if you’d like to help, please contact Miki Landseadel at (805) 975-6996 or Cheryl Carpenter at (805) 543-6408.
