THIRD WEEK OF ADVENT
Another name for this Sunday of Advent is Gaudete or Rejoice Sunday. This name is taken from the entrance antiphon, which is itself a quote from Saint Paul’s Letter to the Philippians. ”Rejoice in the Lord always.” Our Advent season of preparation is already halfway over. How have your preparations gone so far? It is never too late to prepare for the coming of God in our hearts so let us pray today for hearts ever more open to the presence of God.
Our Advent Gathering 2017 will be held today at 4 PM in the Parish Hall. Each family is asked to bring a side dish (enough for 8 to 10 people) and a dessert. We are planning a raffle to be held at the dinner with all proceeds going to Father Duc’s favorite charity.
Advent Confession will be celebrated on Tuesday evening at 7 PM. Let us come and prepare ourselves for God’s coming.
