News From Our Parish

 

PASTOR’S LETTER – NOVEMBER 23, 2022

Dear Parishioners,

Next week, we shall begin the Advent Season, the immediate preparation for Christmas. It is also the beginning of the New Liturgical Year. Advent does not only happen in church. It is also celebrated, and should be observed, in every Catholic home. I found this beautiful article written by Brad Bursa, a catechetical leader since 2008, and I thought it is worth sharing. 

Click here  to read Brad Bursa article.

On behalf of the Parish Administration, I wish you and your families a blessed Advent Season.

Fr. Seth

GIVING TREE PROGRAMTo prepare our hearts for the Spirit of Love, let us be concerned for others, who have so little. You may be asking yourself, “What can I do?” You and your family can be a family to friends and to one another by participating in the GIVING TREE PROGRAM. 

At all the exits of the church, you will see an Angel decorated with angel ornaments. Take an ornament and purchase the gift or gifts indicated on the ornament. Wrap the gift and attach the selected ornament securely on the outside of the gift. Please place your gift in the Creche in the front of the Church.

Let’s do our best to make these modest dreams come true.
