Dear Parishioners and friends,

Peace and blessings!

Our Advent Penance Service will be Monday, December 17th at 7:00pm. We will as usual have several priests joining us to celebrate with you the Sacrament of Reconciliation/Penance.

A big thank you to all involved in putting together our parish pictorial directory. If you had your picture taken and have not picked up your directory, please do so at the parish office. For those interested, we do have some extra ones that can be purchased for $10. These too are at the office.

The third Sunday of Advent is also called Gaudete Sunday. Gaudete is a Latin word that means “rejoice.” It is a reminder that the Advent season is a season of joy because our salvation is already at hand.

Have a blessed Advent week.

In His peace,

Fr. Martin
