Third Sunday of Advent

Dec 12, 2021

        Regional opportunities to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation are usually scheduled during Advent in preparation for the Feast of Christmas, with all the local priests available for confession.  However, these services will not be resumed until the Season of Lent.  The Sacrament of Reconciliation is available each Saturday afternoon from 3:30-4:30 PM in our church, and an additional time is scheduled on Monday 20 Dec. from 5-6 PM.

       The flags decorating our narthex have been donated over the years by parishioners to remember their country of origin and celebrate our diversity.  A form in the bulletin this weekend invites you to have your country represented.  On that form, you can also offer your services as a lector or cantor in a language other than English on the Feast of the Epiphany.

       Many people enjoy prayerfully preparing the scripture readings before coming to Mass.  Books are available for sale on the center narthex table during Advent with either the Sunday readings or the weekday readings included, as well as a Sunday missal.

       Last Saturday, the weather was beautiful, and it was a perfect day for our annual church mulching day.  Many thanks to all those who helped, especially the scouts of Troop 48, and several families from one of our FIRE groups.  We are also grateful to Pat Christoff (of Lawn Perfect Landscaping) for his donation of woodchips for mulching our rain gardens. Great job!

       During Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October our Social Justice Ministry collected gift cards for the clients of Heartly House.  Please read the informative “thank you” letter (included in the bulletin) to learn of the services that Heartly House offers to their clients, and to sense their gratitude for receiving $2630 in gift cards from our parishioners.

       Don’t forget to pick up your SKD 2022 calendars, notecards, and Christmas ornaments in the narthex over the next two weekends!
