A note from the pastor...
Please take advantage of The Word Among Us booklets that are given out for Advent readings and reflections. They are a great resource to prepare us for the celebration of Christmas.
There are Christmas flower envelopes in the offertory envelope boxes, as well as extra ones near where you receive the bulletins in the church. Your donations this year set the budget for next year. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
Advent is a busy time for all of us. That is why I take one of my vacations during this time. I will be away from Thursday evening, December 14th, to Wednesday, December 20th. On Saturday the 16th, I will be at the Boston Pops at Symphony Hall in Boston for their Christmas concert. This will be a first for me.
Our neighboring priests will be covering emergencies and funerals, and Fr. Roger Lecelle will be here for all the weekend Masses.
