Notes from the Pastor’s Pen – November 28, 2021

Dear parishioners,

As we enter upon the holy season of Advent, we are invited to reflect upon our own spiritual life and ask the Lord Jesus to enter more fully into our hearts so that we will be ready to welcome Him when He comes again in glory.

We are grateful to have numerous opportunities to pray and enter more deeply into our faith at this time of the year. Here I think of daily Mass, spending time before Our Lord present in the Most Blessed Sacrament, and reception of the
Sacrament of Reconciliation.

As we make our way through this season, I draw to your attention to the Mass schedule for Christmas. Please remember that Christmas presents us with a grace filled opportunity to encourage those who do not attend Mass to join us at church.

Christmas Eve, Friday, December 24
4:00 p.m. Mass
5:30 p.m. Mass

Christmas Day, Saturday, December 25
9:00 a.m. Mass
11:00 a.m. Mass
(no 4:30 p.m. Mass)

In this time of grace, please know of my prayer, and that of Father Mike Donald, for you and your loved ones. May the Lord Jesus bless you and your family in a special way as we anticipate the celebration of the Birth of the Savior.

In Christ,
Father Bené
