Parish Safe Environment Concern: It has come to our attention that parents are letting their young children (those 10 years and younger) go to the restrooms during Mass without adult supervision. Due to the number of adult visitors to the Church it is impossible for us to guarantee the safety of children in the restrooms if a parent or guardian is not with them in the Church or restroom. Parents, grandparents and guardians: Please do not allow younger children to go to the restrooms or any where in the Church building or Social Hall without adult supervision.

Senior Appreciation Mass: The Senior Appreciation Mass and the celebration of Anointing will be on Tuesday Dec. 12th at 11: 00 a.m. THE MASS WILL BE CELEBRATED IN THE CHURCH FOLLOWED BY THE APPRECIATION LUNCHEON IN THE SOCIAL HALL. Everyone is invited to attend the Mass and Anointing Celebration, but the attendance for the luncheon is by reservation only.

Parish Advent Confessions: Confession's will be heard this Wednesday from 6:30-8:00 p.m. at Holy Family. Confessions are also heard on Saturdays form 3:30-4:30 p.m. or by appointment.

Advent Penance Service: Opportunities for Confession during the Advent season are numerous in the local parishes. The following are a list of communal penance services you can attend: St. Mary (West Heaven) Monday, Dec. 11th at 7:00 p.m. Private Confessions will be heard from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday Dec. 13th and Dec. 20th at Holy Family Church. We will not have a communal celebration at the Parish this Advent.

Advent Benediction: This year on Sunday evenings of Advent we will celebrate a Eucharistic holy hour and Benediction. The celebration of Eucharistic devotion will begin with exposition of the Blessed sacrament at 6:00 p.m. followed by some quiet time for prayer and ending with Benediction at 6:50 p.m. This hour of quiet prayer is a wonderful opportunity to enter into the peace of the Advent season. The next Eucharistic Holy Hour and Benediction will be Sunday Dec. 10th, at 6:00 p.m.

Christmas Flower Donations: Use the envelopes in the pews. Write the names legibly, and return to the collection basket by Dec 18th if you wish to have it published in the Christmas bulletin.

Church Cleaning: We need volunteers, both men and women to help clean the pews in our church in preparation for the Christmas season. Please come on Dec. 16th at 9:00 a.m., bring your cleaning rags and spray or liquid cleaner that is safe to use on wood. This is a personal gift you can give to our beautiful church and to our Savior for Christmas. If you have questions contact Karen Fawbush.

Stewardship, What does the Bible say about Giving? Give with regularity in proportion. “Upon the first day of the week let everyone of you lay by him in store, as God has prospered him.” (1 Corinthians 16:2)

Adoration: “I have come to call, not the self-righteous, but sinners.” (Mt 9:13) Jesus never lost sight if his redemptive mission. He associated with sinners. He loved them. He even ate with them, which was a taboo in those times. In attempting to justify themselves, the self-righteous were not open to receive his redemptive love. We need to regularly assess our own disposition toward Christ.
