This week we celebrate the THANKSGIVING DAY holiday. We will not celebrate Mass on the holiday itself, thus allowing the priests of the parish to be with their families, but join us Wednesday night at 6pm. The PARISH OFFICE CLOSES Wednesday Noon and reopens Monday, December 1st at 9:00am.
Next week is the FIRST SUNDAY IN ADVENT and we will be changing to a new Missalette, entitled, “BREAKING BREAD.” This book will replace the Blue Choral Books. The Green Worship hymnal is also being removed and donated to the missions; the book no longer has matching accompaniment for instruments and the publisher has discontinued its use. Rather than taking up space it makes better sense to donate them to the missions, who will be able to use them, even if in just a limited way. I realize folks have dedicated the books, and while they will be used by a mission parish, I will refund the ten dollar contribution if requested. I am sorry that we have to discontinue the use of the books.

A word of thanks to our upholsterer, H2Sew, who has done the work on the back panels in the rear altar. The upholster works out of Duxbury, and her small business offers pretty quick turnaround. If you need her services, business cars are at each exit.
As ADVENT begins I would like to invite you to attend our WEDNESDAY EVENING’S “THE LIGHT IS ON FOR YOU.” The Pope has instructed us that he would like his PONTIFICATE to be marked with SERVICE TO THE POOR and MERCY TO THE MARGINALIZED. If we want to be merciful we need the tender embrace of our Lord which we receive in the SACRAMENT OF RECONCILIATION. To be merciful our house needs to be in order, and when it is tough to forgive, we need the grace given to us in Confirmation and the Eucharist. If its been a while since you have gone to confession, you will find mercy, love and understanding in the Confessional booth. Each Wednesday from 6:30-8:00pm the SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE has organized 3 nights of praise, worship and scripture.

This WEDNESDAY at 6:00pm I will be celebrating a MASS OF THANKSGIVING, and I will be blessing food stuffs or spirits you may be bringing to your dinner table. The Mass is thirty minutes long. We will pray for those of you who are traveling, that the Lord bless you with good weather and a fast commute. God Bless us everyone. Sound familiar?
HAPPY THANKSGIVING! SAFE TRAVELS!
