Welcome to Our Lady of Victory

Dear parishioners of St. Elizabeth, St. Leonard, and Our Lady of Victory,

 

This weekend we begin the holy season of Advent.  We have almost four full weeks to focus on the coming of Christ into our world.  Perhaps with the whole “slowing down” of much of our world this year as many spend time in quarantine….Advent can actually be more spiritual.   We want to keep it hopeful and joyful.  We do pray for everyone’s health and safety.  Daily Advent prayer and reflection can keep us focused on the many comings of Christ: at the first Christmas, through the kindness of people around us today, and in His promise to return at the end of time.  
What will your Advent calendar look like?  Maybe you could include a special family member or friend in your prayers and good works (even a phone call?) each day.   Maybe with less shopping you can devote some time to journal about your life…  write some meaningful Christmas messages to your loved ones….and send some checks to your favorite charitable organizations.  They all need our extra generosity this year.
I thank you in advance for the generosity you will show to our parishes.  It’s no secret that collections have been down these past months….yet most of our expenses remain close to the same.  May God richly bless you for any extra support you can give to the church during this holy season of Advent and Christmas. 
O Come Emmanuel….bless our lives, and bless our world with Your Peace.      
Fr. Alan

 

Queridos feligreses de Santa Isabel, San Leonard y Nuestra Señora de la Victoria,
Este fin de semana comenzamos la temporada santa de Adviento. Tenemos casi cuatro semanas completas para concentrarnos en la venida de Cristo a nuestro mundo. Quizás con la "desaceleración" de gran parte de nuestro mundo este año, ya que muchos pasan tiempo en cuarentena ... El advenimiento en realidad puede ser más espiritual. Queremos mantenerlo esperanzado y alegre. Oramos por la salud y la seguridad de todos. La oración y la reflexión diarias de Adviento pueden mantenernos enfocados en las muchas venidas de Cristo: en la primera Navidad, a través de la bondad de las personas que nos rodean hoy, y en Su promesa de regresar al final de los tiempos.  
¿Cómo será tu calendario de Adviento? Quizás podría incluir a un familiar o amigo especial en su oraciones y buenas obras (¿incluso una llamada telefónica?) todos los días. Tal vez con menos compras pueda dedicar algo de tiempo a escribir un diario sobre su vida ... escribir algunos mensajes navideños significativos a sus seres queridos ... y enviar algunos cheques a sus organizaciones benéficas favoritas. Todos necesitan nuestra generosidad adicional este año.
Les agradezco de antemano la generosidad que mostrarán a nuestras parroquias. No es ningún secreto que las recaudaciones han bajado estos últimos meses ... sin embargo, la mayoría de nuestros gastos siguen siendo casi iguales. Que Dios lo bendiga ricamente por cualquier apoyo adicional que pueda brindar a la iglesia durante esta temporada santa de Adviento y Navidad.
Oh, Ven Emmanuel… bendice nuestras vidas y bendice nuestro mundo con Tu Paz.
Padre Alan

Advent Reflections

We meditate together, in person or on-line, hoping this Advent will be a time of spiritual awakening and renewal in us all as we prepare to celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.  This first week of Advent, Fr. Alan, along with our choir, will assist us as we begin to prepare for Christmas.  

The First Sunday of Advent, November 29

During this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, many of us find ourselves unable to come together for Sunday Mass.  Let us join together, in person or on-line, as we celebrate the First Sunday of Advent with Father Alan and Deacon Chuck.
