The rose color candle and vestment are meant to highlight the joy of this Third Sunday of Advent…Christmas is near! Our joy is heightened once we have heeded the Baptist’s call and made a good, Christmas confession (just a reminder that our Parish Penance Service which will be very brief is at 3:00 followed by the opportunity with several priests on hand for individual confession and absolution).
Thanks to all who have participated in the Salvation Army Angel Tree, or made food shelf donations, or contributed in the Hurricane Maria collection. (Total thus far comes to $4833.00) Because of my error at the Saturday Mass, if you would still like to contribute towards that special Puerto Rico/Mexico collection, please mark an envelope to that effect and place it in the collection or bring it to the office. Thanks!
As we near the end of the year both our Stewardship and Finance Committees and I would like to thank the parish for your generous stewardship this past year! We are however running behind in our regular adult collection, so a little extra generosity at this time would be greatly appreciated….perhaps along with a stewardship New Years resolution! It is true that we received a couple generous bequests this past year and that the Fall Festival did very well. However, the festival amount was included as part of the operating budget, and in keeping with “best parish practices” the bequests are placed in restricted accounts for special projects and capitol improvements. The heating and cooling, all the utilities of church and school, office expenses, pastoral outreach and faith formation, teachers and staff salaries etc. all need to be paid through our normal operating budget which depends mostly on the Sunday collection! God bless all of our good and faithful stewards!
Please note the six-Mass-schedule next weekend as you plan for the Fourth Sunday of Advent and Christmas!
