This weekend we celebrate the FOURTH SUNDAY OF ADVENT. As we near the end of the Advent Season we get ready for the celebration of the Incarnation of Christ. I know that you and I are busy and are finding it hard to find time to sit and meditate. We can take time before or after Mass, or on our commute to work, or at some other point in time, and just sit down, and think about how awesome this Christmas Event is for all of us. Imagine in the vast Universe, of the many galaxies and planets, God chose the earth to take the form as a human being. I think you and I forget the totality of this event, that is, that God fully and completely revealed Himself by taking on our humanness….by being part of humanity...living in our amidst, not high above in some cloud.

I hope we also take an opportunity to rediscover the dignity of the poverty in which the infant baby was born. Let this Christmas, unlike any other in the past, be for us a revelation of the Church as a poor church as a CHURCH FOR THE POOR. Honor God. Next time you see a homeless beggar on the street or collecting money on a street corner take the time to give him or her a few dollars, ask them their name, and promise and deliver to them a prayer.

The CHRISTMAS MASSES are: On the eve, 4:00pm in the Main Church and 4:10pm in the Chapel; 6:00pm in the Main Church; on Christmas Day, 7:30am, 10:00am and 11:30am each in the Main Church.
There will be no 7:00pm Mass. I realize this weekend we will have many visitors who will take our regular seats and parking spots, and so I thank you for the special hospitality which you will extend to them.
If you get in early to Mass and see a new face, offer them a smile and a handshake, and if you’re an extrovert tell them about the family atmosphere we offer 52 weeks out of the year.

Lastly, please be careful in leaving the parking lot, a few extra minutes might make another persons night extra special.

Next Weekend the Church celebrates the FEAST OF THE HOLY FAMILY, and we will have the regular schedule of Masses, however, we will not have a Sunday Night 7:00pm Mass. The Sunday night Mass at 7:00pm will resume the following weekend.

Thursday, January 1st, is a HOLY DAY OF OBLIGATION, and the Church celebrates the FEAST OF MARY, MOTHER OF GOD. We will have a Vigil Mass on New Year’s Eve at 4:00pm, and on New Year’s Day at 7:30am and 10:00am.
Want to help decorate the Church? Give us a call.

This Christmas, the collection will support the health and well-being of our priests. Our priests have dedicated their lives to serving the Catholic faithful.

Now, it is our turn to help fulfill the promises made to care for them in their time of need. Please give generously to the Christmas collection, which will directly benefit the 628 active and senior diocesan priests whose health and well-being are cared for through the Clergy Health and Retirement Trust.

All are invited to make a gift online at www.clergyfunds.org or use the in-pew envelopes that will be provided. Thank you in advance for your prayers and generous support of this critical effort.
