Collection for Retirement Fund for Religious

Next weekend the annual Retirement Fund for Religious collection will be taken up throughout the United States. Despite the ongoing generosity to the annual RFR collection, numerous religious communities struggle to provide for senior members. Proceeds from the RFR offer supplemental support for strengthening retirement savings and meeting such day-to-day needs as prescription medications and nursing care.  Please be generous.

 

Christmas Flower Offering

At the doors of the church you will find the Christmas Flower Offering envelopes.  If you receive your envelopes in the mail, then you will have one of these in your packet.  Please return the Christmas flower envelopes by Friday, December 14th, so that they can be included in our bulletin.

 

Parish Christmas Giving Tree

Our Acts of Charity committee is sponsoring a tennis shoe drive again this year for two shelters; Mother Teresa Shelter and Timmons.  Please look for our Christmas Giving Tree in the vestibule of the Church.    Please do not gift wrap the shoes.  Instead, just attach the ornament to the item and either drop off at the parish office or place under the giving tree.

 

Advent Bible Study – “ An Advent Retreat with Mary”

The Adult Faith Ministry is pleased to offer you a special four week Advent Bible Study called “An Advent Retreat with Mary”.  In this Advent Bible study and retreat, Dr. Brant Pitre takes you on a scriptural journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem by looking at Jesus through the eyes of the person closest to him: the Virgin Mary.  Classes will be on Tuesday evenings from 7:00 to 8:30 pm, or on Thursday afternoons from 2:00 to 3:30 pm.  All classes will be in the Youth Center, with the first class on Tuesday, November 27th, or Thursday, November 29th.  With each session, Dr. Pitre will help you to see the mysteries of Advent and Christmas through the eyes of Mary and with the mind of the Church. Above all, you will learn what Luke means when he says that "Mary kept all these things, pondering them in her heart" (Luke 2:19).  So, if you're tired of rushing through Advent each year, and you'd like to enter more deeply into the Christmas season, then do yourself a favor: Go on 'retreat' this Advent with Mary, and let her help you prepare your heart and mind to celebrate the great feast of the Incarnation.
