A Note From Fr. Bob
The blessings of Advent to you and your family. First and foremost, please know that Father Jerry and I miss you, a lot!. We are grateful for your prayerful and sometimes virtual presence, but it is just not the same as seeing you in person and worshipping with you as a community of faith. You are in our daily prayers. Please pray for us.
We begin this wonderful season of Advent this weekend. This season of preparing to celebrate the birth of our Lord. This season is also a season of hope. Hope given to us by our Father in heaven through the Incarnation of his Son. Hope because his Son shows us the way. Jesus gives us hope because he is the Light of the World. This Advent may we take time to behold his light and hope in our lives.
The schedule below offers several opportunities for preparation to celebrate our Lord’s birth. Please note that some Mass times for Christmas have changed and others have been added. We will have 6 Masses for Christmas, 3 on the eve and 3 on the day.
Considering the restrictions and concerns for COVID, we want everyone who wishes to attend Mass in person and receive Holy Communion at Christmas to have that opportunity. We are planning to stream the Mass to the Parish Hall and the Gym if necessary. Eucharistic Ministers will bring Holy Communion to both the Parish Hall and Gym. So that we can plan accordingly, we would like to hear from you if you are planning to attend in person for Christmas. Please send an email to Christmas@holyspiritstl.org with the Mass time and number of people who will be attending. If necessary, we will then have 3 places to gather, the Church, the Parish Hall and the Gymnasium. In addition, we will live-stream all our Masses to YouTube. Our YouTube Channel is https://youtube.com/channel/UC4yid2iigw4TuFYc6mD4kBw
May the peace of Christ be your as we prepare for the Lord’s coming!
