Advent - The Greatest Gift !
One simple step that we can do during this Advent season to prepare ourselves for the two comings of Christ: Clear up the static. Sin, when left unconfessed, can block our ability to hear what Jesus wants to say to us. Just as we hate the static on a cellphone call, we should hate our sins because they make it hard to hear Jesus. Clear up the static by celebrating the
Sacrament of Reconciliation this Advent !
Sign-up Sheets – Church Ministries
Once more, we look forward to the assistance of our different ministries for our Christmas celebration; e.g., lectors, Eucharistic ministers, altar servers and ushers. We have sign-up sheets available in the sacristy and (for the ushers) in the ushers’ room. Kindly sign-up for the mass where you can assist, so that we can plan our masses accordingly.
Feast of Corpus Christi - 17 June, 2017
