ADVENT PARTICIPATION – December 16 & 23
This year we invite individuals and families to light the Advent wreath placed in the sanctuary space. On the four Sundays of Advent, at the 9, 10:30 & 12 Masses, would you like to come forward and actively participate in the lighting of the Advent wreath? We hope that this liturgical practice in church will be repeated in everyone’s home around their family Advent wreath throughout the holy season. Please fill out the form in the bulletin and place it in the collection basket on Sunday or drop it off at the Parish Office during the week. You will be contacted. Thanks in advance for your interest and help.

BLESSING OF BABY JESUS FIGURES – Sunday, December 16 at 10:30 Mass
We invite all our parishioners and families to bring the statue of the Baby Jesus from the nativity scenes in their homes, under their Christmas Trees or from their front lawns.
