FATHER ABEL’S COLUMN – NOV. 16TH, 2014

cornucopiaThis coming Monday, November 17th, we will begin adoration of the Blessed Sacrament during the week from 7:30 AM to 6:45 PM (ending with Benediction) Please make every effort to stop in if you are near the Chapel and to spend some time, even if its 5 minutes, before the Lord in prayer. I promise it will be 5 minutes well spent. Please pass this along to your friends and loved ones as well.

Thanksgiving is fast approaching! I want to draw your attention to 2 parish celebrations of Thanksgiving that I need you to be present at. First, is the special Mass on Wednesday, November 26 at 7PM in the Church. Some of our families from our school and Religious Education Program will take part at the Mass in different ways. The homily will be geared for children so please make every effort to bring your children and grandchildren as we give thanks to God for the many blessings bestowed on our family and country.

On Thanksgiving Day, November 27th, we will have only 1 Parish Mass at 9AM. All are welcome. Please continue to make a contribution to our Thanksgiving Collection for those who are less fortunate. We rely on your generosity in helping others to make their Thanksgiving Day special! Thanks for your generosity!

We would like to purchase new music hymnals for our parish, but we need your help. Please consider purchasing a hymnal(s) by having one in memory of a loved one (living or deceased). We would like to purchase 600 as a start but won’t do so until we get as many people as possible to purchase them for us. Please consider doing so! It will add to our parish’s worship of God!

Thanks for your support!

Rev. Kevin P. Abels
