Happy Advent. Somewhere in each person’s life we cross the line between “it seems like Christmas will never get here” to “I can’t believe it’s already Christmas time.” Maybe that is why Advent is so important. It teaches us how to wait in anticipation and joy and it teaches us to actively prepare, but with an eye on the Lord and what is really important. Let’s use Advent wisely.
Next Sunday begins the year of Mercy. To that cause, we are handing out for Advent a book on Mercy composed by the publishers of the Magnificat Magazine. Each day of the year it has a reflection on mercy. Put it by your prayer chair or use it as a family focus when you pray together. Imagine the whole world praying for mercy. We could have a very different world in a year.
I want to thank all who returned their stewardship pledge cards or who made an increase in their giving. We have noticed an increase in offertory collections. If we maintain the present level of giving, we should meet our budgeted offertory goal for this year. Thanks again for responding so generously and promptly to my request.
Just a reminder to fill out the Archdiocesan survey. The easiest way is to go to our web page and fill it out on line, but there are also extra copies at the doors of the Church.
