First Sunday of Advent
But of that day and hour no one knows,neither the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but
the Father alone...
So it will be also at the coming of the Son of Man.
Two men will be out in the field;
One will be taken, and one will be left.
Two women will be grinding at the mill;
One will be taken, and one will be left.
Therefore, stay awake!
For you do not know on which day your
Lord will come.
Be sure of this: if the master of the house had known the hour of night when the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and not let his house be broken into. So too, you must also be prepared, For at an hour you do not expect, The Son of Man will come.”
Matthew 24: 36 - 44
PRAY TOGETHER DURING ADVENT
During the four weeks of Advent the Respect Life Committee invites each of you to pray with them on Mondays at 12 noon. You may pick up a paper which will explain how you may participate in the four weeks of prayer leading up to Christmas. On the board as you enter the Church you will notice a poster (kindness of Virginia Auge) which outlines the plan. There are two baskets (one in the Vestibule and the other on the table with the Word Among us Books). Next to the baskets are the prayer intentions. Take a series of four circles and one prayer intention sheet.
Our goal this Advent is for all the Holy Family Parish Family to PRAY TOGETHER.
From the Pastor …
Dear Friends: Happy Advent!
This is a very special season of the year and it gives us an opportunity to prepare hearts as well as homes, trees and messages sent to family and friends. It is a time for us to prepare our hearts to receive the great gift of the Savior. In this busy season I will try to keep you informed about various opportunities available for Advent.
We will be providing wall calendars to you for 2014. They are being printed for the Archdiocesan parishes and will list all of the liturgical feast days and celebrations. We will have them at the entrance to the Church when they arrive.
Sacrament of Reconciliation/Penance
We will continue to have confessions available on Saturday afternoons from 3:00 – 3:50. In addition we will have two additional confession times during Advent:
Tuesday, December 17 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and Thursday December 19 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
These confessions will be heard in the Church.
Recognizing that everyone’s schedule is different, I will also publish the times and places of Penance Services being held in the Deanery. This week the Penance Service at Sts. Peter and Paul will be on Thursday, December 3 at 6:30 p.m.
For planning, I’ll give you the Christmas and New Year’s Mass schedules:
Christmas Eve: 4:00 p.m. 7:00 p.m. Spanish
Note: No Midnight Mass
Christmas Day: 8:00 a.m. 9:30 a.m.
New Year’s Eve: 4:00 p.m. 7:00 p.m. Spanish
New Year’s Day: 8:00 a.m. 9:30 a.m.
Please know that my prayers will be with all of you and your families for a very prayerful Advent season.
