Lifting our prayers through the intercession of Our Lady of Mount Virgin and Our Lady of Sorrows.

December 8, 2019​

My Friends:

Advent truly is a beautiful season for us to take spiritual inventory as we prepare not only for Christmas BUT most importantly that we be prepared for His second coming. The Gospel last Sunday reminded us to “Stay Awake” as we do not know the hour.

I need to encourage you to participate in the Sacrament of Reconciliation from noon to 8pm and in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. Priests will be available throughout in both Italian and English.  This is how we need to prepare for Christmas! Give the Christ Child the gift of a reconciled soul.

We now have four Pilgrim Statues of the Blessed Mother. One per Mass. A traffic jam has occurred. Once they’re all returned we will be certain to send Her home each week for the family prayer of the rosary. We need all of the prayers we can get.

Please join us for the Annual Christmas Sing-A-Long and Cookie Swap at our Jewell Street Chapel this afternoon at 2:00 pm and our CHRISTMAS CONCERT next Sunday at 2:00 pm in our Church!

Thanks to Vitamia for the gift of the Thanksgiving Bread.

Have a blessed Advent Season.

Loving you always,

Fr. Peter
