My dear friends in Christ,

 

Pax Christi!

 

Our Advent Penance Celebration will be on Thursday (NOTE: not Wednesday), December 1st from 4-5:30pm. There will be at least 5 priests hearing confessions. Advent is an opportune time to be ready for the birthday of Jesus. Come and experience God’s unfathomable love and mercy in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

 

The Catholic Women’s League is having their Annual Christmas Fair & Artists Market this Saturday (November 26th) from 9am- 2pm. The Fair will feature craft vendors, baked goods, touch & take and a jewelry and purse table.  There will also be raffles and a delicious lunch. This is their major fundraiser! Come, support them and let’s have fun!

 

This weekend we begin the Season of Advent which opens the new liturgical year of the Church and invites us to stay spiritually awake. Advent literally means coming. The Lord Jesus is coming to bring us peace and hope. Our reaction to his coming cannot be one of indifference, but must be one of vigilance.

 

Christian life is one of readiness and anticipation. Are we going to open the door of our hearts for his coming, especially this Christmas? Are we ready to make Christ’s light and peace come into this world?

 

Love & Prayers!
