Advent - Season of Joy
The liturgical color changes to rose. The candle on the Advent Wreath and the priest’s vestments switch from purple to rose. The third Sunday of Advent is called “Gaudete” Sunday, a Latin word meaning “joy” Our anticipation of the coming Christ is so near that we can practically taste it. The color rose reflects this change in attitude.
Our preparation takes on a sense of urgency. Making room for Christ becomes a prime concern during this Season. Making ready the way of the Lord demands that we take a look at our lives, and identify those obstacles that get in the way. It is time “turn our lives around.” It is a time of reconciliation.
A Communal Penance Service will be held this coming Tuesday, Dec. 15th at 7:00 pm. There will be four priests available for our parishioners who would like to avail themselves of the Sacrament. Please consider joining us on Tuesday.

Mass times for the holy day are as follows: Monday, December 7 (Vigil) - 4:00 pm and Tuesday, December 8 - 6:45am, 9:00am and 7:00pm.

Heat 'n Park Final Report
With our Heat ‘n Park Campaign completed, I am very pleased to report that we have exceeded our goal of $250,000. The final tally is $255,555.50. The HVAC (heat & air conditioning system) has been installed, and was told would be operational for this weekend. I cannot thank you enough for your support. We are negotiating the work on the parking lot with a goal of completing it in the summer of 2010.
Advent Season
Today, begins a new church year. Advent marks “new beginnings” as the universal church yearns in anticipation. Maranatha, a word meaning: “Come, Lord Jesus, Come” is her battle cry. From the depths of our darkness, we yearn for light. In the midst of hopelessness we seek hope. At the center of our lives is a struggle  between cynicism and hope. Through the next 4 weeks, our parish joins Catholics around the world in a special discipline that makes ready the arrival of hope in the person of Jesus. To help us on this Advent journey we want to offer you a special Advent gift. It is a daily meditation booklet called, The Word Among Us. Wonderful meditations are presented for each day of Advent to help us prepare “a way for the Lord.” We provide extra booklets for you to distribute among family and friends to help them share with you this special season. Please enjoy this remarkable resource.
