COMMUNAL PENANCE SERVICE

Posted on November 17, 2012

The Season of Advent is a time to prepare for the coming of Christ. We prepare for the final coming at the end of time and the historical coming 2,012 years ago, but most of all we prepare our hearts to receive Christ as He comes to us anew at this particular time and place. This preparation calls us to examine our conscience, identify our sinfulness, confess these failures, express our contrition, and to celebrate the forgiveness and love that God has for us. In our Catholic tradition, the great Sacrament of Reconciliation gives us a visible, tangible way to enter into this celebration. Our Parish will have an Advent Comm...

EXTRA RAFFLE TICKETS

Posted on November 17, 2012

  The Christmas Raffle Tickets have been mailed out to all of our families and should have been received this week. Unfortunately, it has come to our attention that some of our families only received one book of tickets instead of the two that Monsignor noted in his letter. If you only received one book, please stop in the office and pick up your additional book, they are in a basket on the table in the Gathering Space. Our parish depends on our fund raisers for the extras not covered by our annual budget. We apologize for this error.
