Second Sunday of Advent

Dec 4, 2022

Many thanks to all who contributed to the collection on Thanksgiving Day for the Religious Coalition for Emergency Human Needs.  Because of your generosity, we collected over $900 to support their work here in Frederick County.  Thanks also to all those who have regularly remembered the poor in our area by bringing donations of canned food to the narthex blue bin for the Frederick Food Bank.

       We offer a blessing of expectant parents twice each year during weekend Mass.  Please alert family members and friends who may want to share in this blessing at the 9:00 AM Mass next Sunday—and register with pastoral associate Brian McCrohan in the Parish Office this week (as indicated elsewhere in the bulletin) if you plan to attend.

       Next weekend is the deadline for participation in our annual Christmas basket program benefitting the poor at Saint Gregory’s parish in inner city Baltimore.  Details about the program are available elsewhere in the bulletin.  Next weekend will also be the drawing for the Katie’s Ladies $500 Gift Card & Cash wreath raffle, so get your tickets soon. You must play to win!

       This Thursday we celebrate the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, and this is a Holyday of Obligation.  Masses will be celebrated at 8:30 AM and 7:00 PM in our church.  Join your family of faith in celebrating how faithful Mary was in her response to God’s call—right from the very start of her existence.

       Our Social Justice Ministry has produced an “Alternate Giving” catalogue that you might use in making donations to local charities as Christmas gifts for some on your shopping list this year. These catalogues are available at the narthex Gift Card table.

       Our Drexel Voyager senior group has been formed and organized over the last 12+ years under the leadership of Jan Scudiero.  We thank her for her dedicated service, and welcome Cathy Smeak who will now assume the leadership role for this group.

Fr. Keith
