  • Changes for Advent

    As we did last year, there will be some minor changes in the way we celebrate Mass during the Advent Season. We will begin Mass with the Ministers entering either in silence or just simple instrumental music. The Celebrant will say a few words about the Advent Wreath and then the appropriate candle(s) will be lit as the Congregation sings “O Come, O Come Emmanuel”.

    In an effort to see if we can enhance participation in the Mass, we will be turning the Altar caddy corner ( / ) as we did many years ago. We’re hoping that this will also help everyone in the church appreciate our Advent and Christmas decorations.

    During the Advent Season and throughout the new liturgical year we will be highlighting Pope Francis’ call for a Jubilee Year of Mercy. We will be reenacting the opening of the Holy Doors of the Pope’s Church in Rome, St. John Lateran and the Holy Doors of St. Peter’s Basilica. These are very ornate, beautiful and precious doors that are opened only for very special occasions and were last opened in 2000. We will be decorating our church doors, and we will ask all of our people to gather in Deacon John Hall the weekend of December 12-13, the first weekend after Dec. 8th when the Jubilee Year of Mercy begins. We will process through the Holy Doors of Mercy into the Church. 

  • Senior Luncheon

    All Senior Citizens (Age 55+) are invited to our monthly Senior Citizen Luncheon, held on the first Wednesday of each month at 12 Noon. The next luncheon will be on Wednesday, December 2nd. A free-will offering is taken. If you have any questions or would like to help in any way, please call Helen Schwarting at 744-3026.

    Once again we invite all children of the parish to make their own personal ornament for our Children’s Christmas tree, which will be displayed in the East Wing. There will be baskets at the church doors to collect these special ornaments over the next couple of weeks. This is a very important part of our holiday decorations. Please encourage your children to participate. Thank you!

  • Parish Pay Challenge

    An anonymous parishioner who considers electronic giving through Parish Pay such an advantage for our church, has made this challenge: For every 100 parishioners who sign-up for Parish Pay, he will donate $100 to be used as the prize for a raffle. The names of the first 100 will be placed in a drawing and one of them will be the lucky winner! No charge for the raffle. Just sign-up to use Parish Pay!! (TIP: 28 have already signed up.)

    When we have 200 parishioners signed up, there will be a second drawing for an additional $100 prize. This drawing will include all 200 Parish Pay participants. The donor will then repeat this for each one hundred sign-ups up to 5 drawings. The last drawing will be held Sunday, December 20th. Once you sign-up for Parish Pay, you will be eligible for each future raffle. So you not only get the benefits of using Parish Pay, early birds can also get 5 chances to win $100!!! For free!!!
