advent2On Friday December 19th at 8 P.M. in the Church, our 3 parish choirs will be conducting our Lessons and Carols. The festival of nine Lessons and Carols is a service of Christian workshop celebrating the birth of Jesus that is traditionally followed at Christmas. Lessons and Carols will be done through reflection of scripture and song. I hope to see all of you there.

I am happy to tell you that we have purchased an outdoor parish Christmas tree which will be placed in the plaza as you come out of the Church. We will have the lighting of the tree next Saturday Dec. 13th, after the 5 P.M. Mass. Please come to the special event. Hot chocolate and cookies will be provided.

Next weekend, December 10th you will have the opportunity to celebrate the Sacrament of reconciliation all day, from 7:30 A.M. – 7:30 P.M. A priest will be available during this time to hear your confession. Finally, just a reminder to those of you who have contributed to the 2014 Annual Catholic Appeal, to pay off your remaining pledges by December 31st. we need to get back the amount over the goal, which as of today is 32,000! Please help me to make this prayer come true!

Thanks for your support

Rev. Kevin P. Abels
