Our prayer for you during this Season of Advent is that, together, we might come to experience a deeper sense of the True Presence of God in our midst; and that through this new-felt experience, we might come to realize that God’s Kingdom is in the hearts of those with whom we worship as Parish.
We invite you to come and worship with us during this Advent Season. Let us together lift our hearts and voices in prayer to our God who has been good to us; to God who gives us the Son, Jesus Christ, through the miracle of the Incarnation.
The schedule below offers many opportunities for each of us to enter into the richness of this Season and to prepare to receive the Messiah. Please note the special Mass times for Christmas Eve and Day and New Year’s Day.
This year Christmas falls on a Saturday. Therefore, there will not be a vigil Mass in the evening for Sunday. Also, note that there will be 5 Masses for Christmas, 3 on the Eve and 2 on Christmas Morning. Also, since the
Solemnity of Mary, The Holy Mother of God falls on a Saturday, it is not a day of obligation so there will just be the one Mass at 8:00 am on Saturday.
Please stop by the Gathering Area to pick up this year’s edition of the “Little Blue Book.”
We commend this book to you to assist in your preparation to Celebrate the birth of our Lord.
May the peace of Christ be yours as we prepare for the Lord’s coming!
Come to us, O Emmanuel! Come, O Prince of Peace!
