This Sunday, the 1st Sunday of Advent, begins the new liturgical year. What better way to end the liturgical year than with the celebrations of Christ the King and Thanksgiving and begin the new liturgical year with Advent in preparation for the Christmas Season.
Sadly enough, the season of Advent is often overshadowed by the commercial Christmas fever that seems to strike everyone after Thanksgiving, including the shopping frenzy of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, retail stores decked with Christmas decorations, and people frantically spending hours preparing for Christmas parties, searching for the right gifts, etc., etc. All this business can cause us to lose sight of the very important spiritual preparation period for Christmas called Advent.
We offer Sunday hospitality (donuts, coffee, & orange juice) throughout the year. We need more volunteers in order for this ministry to be sustainable. The time commitment is minimal. You can sign-up for one or two dates when you normally come to Mass. It is an easy way to share your time, talent, and treasure! If you are interested in volunteering, please click here to sign-up or call the parish office.
