From Our Pastor

On Monday of this coming week, the Church celebrates a great feast day with the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception.  The actual date for this solemnity is really December 8th, but this year it is being transferred to Monday, December 9th because December 8th falls on a Sunday. Because it is being transferred to a different date this year, it is still a Holy Day but not a day of obligation. The Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception is not only a universal feast day, but also has great meaning to the Catholic Church in the United States because this is our national patronal feast day. Please join us for mass on Monday, December 9th at 9:00 AM as we reflect on the ever-blessed Virgin Mary, celebrate the great mysteries of our Catholic faith, and pray for our nation.

Celebrate Reconciliation this Advent with our regular schedule of Wednesdays at 6:00 PM or Saturdays at 4:00 PM. In addition, we have a special Advent Reconciliation Evening scheduled on Thursday, December 19th from 6:00-8:00 PM in the Church. There will be a number of priests assisting me that evening to hear confessions.

Also, please note that the Christmas Mass schedule has changed this year to be both more accommodating to families with young children and to hopefully relieve some of the pressure from lack of space at  the early Christmas Eve Mass. This year the Mass schedule will be:

* Children’s Christmas Eve presentation at 3:30 PM/Mass at 4:00 PM

* Christmas Eve Mass at 6:00 PM

* Christmas Eve Mass at 10:00 PM

* Christmas Day Mass only at 10:00 AM

The entire Advent & Christmas schedule is below. If you need a copy, please call the Rectory and one can be emailed to you or mailed.
