Upcoming Events 

THANKSGIVING DAY MASS

Thanksgiving Day this year falls on Thursday, November 24’th.

It is a special celebration in our country with many strong traditions.

The word “ Eucharist” means “Thanksgiving.” We are invited, if our schedule permits, to gather around our parish Altar Table for an 8 AM Mass this Thanksgiving Day to “give thanks” prior to gathering with family and friends later in the day around a dining room table to “give thanks” before a shared meal.

A unique feature at this Thanksgiving Day Mass will be the Blessing of loaves of bread during the Mass and the invitation for you to take one of these loaves back to your dining room table to break and share along with reciting a special Blessing Prayer that will be included on the bread loaf.

We have so much to be Thankful for…….. God is good

A Message from Fr. Walter

FIRST SUNDAY OF ADVENT

 “Stay awake!” These words in the Gospel of Matthew today strike us to the core as we begin the Advent Season. These words also foreshadow the disciples’ struggle during the agony in the garden. The call to stay awake presumes that we might be dozing off, idling our time away. Disciples must be ready at all times without resorting to a false sense of security.

In the Northern Hemisphere, the Season of Advent coincides with the darkest time of the year. As we look ahead to the feast of Christmas when we celebrate the light of God coming into the world in the mystery of the incarnation, we might ponder, what is it that helps us to heed Jesus’ call to stay awake? When we let the light of God shine in our lives, we are compelled to waken to the reality of what is – to confront the darkness inside ourselves and the darkness in our world. And then to recommit to being people of light.

Eucharistic Adoration

Every Wednesday, from 8:30am-6:00pm, in the Church

O Come Let Us Adore Him!!

The Catechism quotes Pope John Paul II: "The Church and the world have a great need for Eucharistic worship. Jesus awaits us in this sacrament of love. Let us not refuse the time to go to meet him in adoration, in contemplation full of faith, and open to making amends for the serious offenses and crimes of the world. Let our adoration never cease." (CCC, 1380)

Consider signing up for an hour to pray before the Blessed Sacrament.  Adorers are always welcome to stop in and spend time with our Lord.

Sunday Obligation

The obligation to attend Holy Mass on the Lord’s Day is a sacred one. Anyone who is frail or at risk due to advanced age or medical conditions is always excused from this obligation.

However, those who are healthy and not at great risk, the presumption of the faithful should be that, unless they are at an enhanced risk, sick, or caring for others who are at risk or sick, are obligated to attend Sunday Mass.
