I am sure by now you have noticed the beautiful statue of the Risen Christ that stands on a pedestal outside the Pastoral Center by the Chapel. This statue was generously donated to us by Dr. Bill and Diane Barrett. It was carved in Vietnam. It is perfect for us as the Church of the Resurrection. We plan to have a light installed to light it in the evening hours. Thank you Bill and Diane.
On Monday the 12th of December we will hold our annual Reconciliation Service here at Resurrection at 7 PM. On the 13th another will be held at St. Francis in Fulton. Please plan on attending one of these two services. Fr. Canisius will be going back to Cameroon to see his family for Christmas so there will not be as many opportunities for confession later in the month. PLEASE come on the 12th! I encouraged Fr. Canisius to take this opportunity to go home at Christmas because with the priest shortage this may be the last time he will be able to do so.
Tuesday is the Feast of St. Nicholas and we all know who he really is. There are many stories told of St. Nick including secretly providing the dowry for three maiden girls so they could marry. He was also one of the Bishops at the Council of Nicaea from which came the Nicene Creed we pray every Sunday at Mass. Tradition says if you put your shoes out on the 5th, they will be filled with coins or candy or oranges the next morning. I’ve never had much luck with that one though one year the dog ate my shoe.
