Dear Parish Family,
Blessings as we begin a new Liturgical Year in the Church which is this weekend, the First Sunday of Advent.
Advent is a time of joyful anticipation. As we prepare for Christmas during these days of Advent waiting, we also look ahead to the unknown day of Christ’s return in glory.
The Advent Sundays pave the way for the celebration of Jesus’ first coming at his birth in Bethlehem, his Second Coming at the end of times, and his continued coming to all who gather in his name. This Sunday’s Gospel describes that Second Coming and the fulfillment of the human race at the end of time. So, we are invited to stay awake and be watchful to avoid evil and sin, and to constantly walk in the Light of Christ as we prepare to meet the Lord.
I invite you an Advent Evening
A Journey to Advent Healing
led by our Guest Speaker Fr. Joel Nobel Lopez, OFS
December 5 will be a talk and December 6 a Healing Mass at 7:00pm
This is a good way to prepare for Christmas.
