Second Collection

      Our second collection this weekend is for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development. Over 46 million people in the U.S. live in poverty. This collection supports programs to empower people to identify and address the obstacles they face as they work to lift themselves out of poverty. By supporting this collection you give people a hand up, not a hand out.
       Learn more about this Catholic Campaign at: www.usccb/org/cchd/collection/collection-resources.cfm.

Advent Next Week

     The focus of Advent is preparation for the coming of the Lord -- both in commemoration of His Nativity and His coming again at the end of time. Though many people see this time of year as a part of the "Christmas Season," it isn't; the Christmas season does not begin until the first Mass at Christmas Eve, and doesn't end liturgically until the Octave of the Epiphany on January 14. It goes on in the spiritual sense until Candlemas on February 2, when all celebrations of Christ's Childhood give way to Septuagesima and Lent.

Preparing For Advent

      Advent is a time when we can step back from the hectic routine, slow down and contemplate the Mystery of the Incarnation. It marks the beginning of a new liturgical year in the Church that slowly builds momentum towards Christmas as the weeks go by. As with all new beginnings, this season is intended to renew our joy, hope, faith and love.
       While the rest of the world rushes through to get to Christmas, let us slow down and appreciate this season and rejoice in the lead up to the birth of our Savior this Christmas.

Bulletin Advertising

We have several open spots on the back page which we will be actively trying to fill. If you have a business, or interest in advertising, please call the rectory for prices - (530) 926-4477.
