Second Sunday of Advent

Dec 8, 2019

Many thanks to all who contributed to the collection at Mass on Thanksgiving Day for the Religious Coalition for Emergency Human Needs.  Because of your generosity, we were able to send over $1200 to support their work among the poor in Frederick County.  Thanks also to all those who remember the poor by regularly bringing donations of canned food for the Frederick Food Bank.

Art and Becky Mathsen would like to convey their deep gratitude to everyone for their support and prayers at the time of their daughter Michele’s funeral.  They are especially appreciative to the adult choir and our bereavement ministry.  Art and Becky– you remain in our prayers during this time of mourning.

 I hope that you will consider making our Interfaith Event on New Year’s Eve a part of your family holiday schedule.  The evening will start with a concert by the Frederick Children’s Chorus at 7:30 PM, followed by the prayer service at 8:00 PM, and conclude with a light reception.  Each year we reach out to the interfaith community, as well as civic, cultural, and educational leaders.  Even if you cannot attend, please consider signing up after Mass to provide some finger food for the reception.

To get more into the spirit of the season, don’t miss the two seasonal concerts taking place in our church next weekend.  On Saturday 14 December the Frederick Children’s Chorus will present a winter concert at 7:30 PM, and on Sunday 15 December an Encore holiday concert will be presented at 3:00 PM.  Our children’s Christmas Pageant will be presented during the “Almost Christmas” Party on Sunday15 December at 7:00 PM in McElroy Hall.  Inserts in this bulletin have more information about these events.

Next weekend will be the drawing for the Katie’s Ladies $500 Gift Card & cash tree raffle, so get your tickets soon. Our thanks to members of the Knights of Columbus who are leading the rosary during Advent.

Fr. Keith
