We will not have a communal celebration at the Parish this Advent. Private Confessions are also heard every Saturday from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Saturday Confessions: Confessions are heard on Saturday form 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Some people, however, are arriving after 4:30 p.m. for Confessions prior to the 5:00 p.m. Mass. Please note, that promptly at 4:45 p.m. Confessions must end so Fr. Bill can prepare for the 5:00 p.m. liturgy so if there are people waiting, they will have to schedule an appointment for a latter time.
Senior Mass/Anointing & Luncheon: The sign-up sheets are in the Gathering Space for those who would like to attend the Appreciation Luncheon for the senior members of the Parish (anyone 65 years or older). Please see Fr. Bill after Mass if you would like to sign up to attend. (No reservations will be taken over the phone and the deadline for sign-up will be Sunday, Dec. 3rd.) The Mass, celebration of the Sacrament of the Sick, and luncheon will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 12th in the Parish Hall. The Mass will begin at 11 a.m. followed by a luncheon (no charge) and entertainment t by the children from St. Joseph Elementary school. (Please Note: This luncheon is only for parishioners. It is free of charge. Please so not invite a neighbor, friend or non-parishioner since this will make the cost prohibitive and we will not be able to sponsor another luncheon.)

Re-Keying of the Parish Facilities: All the buildings in the Parish (the Church, Education Building, and Social Hall) have now been re-keyed so your old keys will no longer work.

SHARE/CCS Food Drive: Runs the entire month of November. Canned foods and nonperishable items, especially canned fruit, tuna, peanut butter and soups are needed. Place on the Sanctuary steps. If you need help an usher will assist you. This is your personal Thanksgiving pledge to the local community.
Stewardship, What does the Bible say about Giving? “We thank you, our God, and praise your glorious Name..for all things come from you and we have only given back what is your already.” (1 Chronicles 29:13-14)
Adoration: “She (Mary) is to have a son and you are to name him Jesus because he will save his people from their sins.” (Mt 1:21) Our Christian era was inaugurated with great hope and expectancy. The angel’s message to us through Joseph is most reassuring “he will save his people from their sins.” We are “his people” when we come to him admitting our sinfulness and our need for his forgiving, healing love. Be merciful to me a sinner, O Lord!
