Mass Intentions & Memorial Candles
If you would like to have a Mass offered for a particular
Intention or for someone who has died, or if you would like to
dedicate a candle to an intention or a loved one, please call the
parish office. The stipend for the Mass is $10. The candles are
$30 for 1 month, $60 for 6 months, or $90 for one year. Our
office staff will help you find an open date and time for a Mass,
or available candles for dedications.
Jubilee Year of Mercy. This Jubilee Year of Mercy is a gift to humanity. Thanks
to Pope Francis for being an apostle of mercy. Truly the world needs more mercy than
Let us join the whole Church opening the Year of Mercy this 8th of December. Pope
Francis said in the Bull of Indiction that the Church makes mercy available throughout
time. Jesus is the face of the Father’s mercy. We are invited to gaze more often at the face
of God’s mercy. We, too, are invited to experience God’s mercy and be merciful like
Christ through our baptismal call.
This December 21, the City of Albany will be celebrating a day in honor of the homeless.
This day of remembrance is also a day to do generous strides to help our homeless
brothers and sisters. As a great opportunity to start with, I am inviting you to join me in
doing corporal work of mercy of keeping our homeless brothers and sisters warm during
this freezing season. Used clothing, blankets, socks, mittens, and coats are welcome.
Bring them in the church beginning 8th of December until December 20.
In the previous notes, I mentioned about movements of some
furnishings on the sanctuary to help us better celebrate our
liturgies and emphasize the meaning of the parts of the Mass in
connection to the space and the furnishings used. Each piece of
sanctuary furnishing bespeaks of the importance of the parts of the
celebration of the Mass and the space the ministers share and move in
make the whole celebration beautiful and organized.
I want to share to you this rough-draft of a front perspective of the
plan. This draft is unscaled, thus the ratio of the sizes of the pieces in
the draft does not necessarily represent to the real pieces. The drawing
will only show where those pieces will go and how they will look like
when the pieces are moved.
The ambo will move to the left and will be placed forward. All the
readings (i.e. the first reading, the Psalm, the second reading and the
Gospel) will be proclaimed here. The ambo will also be used to preach
the homily and to pray the universal prayers.
The icon of the Our Lady of Perpetual Help will have a permanent place on the sanctuary. Since she is the
patroness of the parish, she will be permanently located in an alcove on the right side of the wall behind the altar.
The Tabernacle will also move to the sanctuary. It will be placed on the wall on the left next to the alcove
of the icon of the Our Lady of Perpetual Help. Since we made the chapel a ready 24-hour reservation chapel for the
Blessed Sacrament, the current place of the Tabernacle becomes unnecessary. To give the Tabernacle it’s proper
place, it should go back to the sanctuary area where proper honor can be given to it in and outside Mass.
Other pieces that will stay on the sanctuary will be the altar, the presider’s chair, the deacon chair and the
processional cross.
El Año Jubilar de la Misericordia. Este Año Jubilar de la Misericordia es un regalo para la humanidad.
Gracias al Papa Francisco por ser un apóstol de la misericordia. En verdad que el mundo necesita de la misericordia
mas que nunca.
Unámonos a toda la Iglesia en la apertura del Año de la Misericordia este 8 de Diciembre. El Papa
Francisco dijo en la bula papal de convocación que la Iglesia hace disponible la Misericordia en todo momento.
Jesús es el rostro de la misericordia del Padre. Se nos invita a mirar con más frecuencia el rostro de la misericordia
de Dios. Nosotros también estamos invitados a experimentar la misericordia de Dios y ser misericordiosos como
Cristo a través de nuestro llamado bautismal.
Este 21 de Diciembre en la ciudad de Albany se celebra un día en honor a las personas sin hogar. Este día
de conmemoración es también un día para hacer pasos generosos para ayudar a nuestros hermanos y hermanas sin
hogar. Como una gran oportunidad para empezar, yo los invito a que me acompañen en hacer obras de misericordia
corporal de mantener a nuestros hermanos y hermanas sin hogar con abrigo durante esta temporada de frío. Ropa
Usada, guantes, calcetines, cobijas, gorras y abrigos son bienvenidos. Tráigalo aquí en la iglesia a partir del 08 al
20 de Diciembre.

En las notas anteriores, he mencionado acerca de mover algunos muebles en el santuario para ayudarnos
mejor a celebrar nuestras liturgias y enfatizar el significado de las partes de la Misa en relación con el espacio y de
como usar los muebles. Cada pieza de mobiliario del santuario nos habla de la importancia de las partes de la
celebración de la Misa y el espacio que de los ministros comparten y en donde se mueven al hacer toda la
celebración hermosa y organizada.
Quiero compartir con ustedes este Dibujo o plano de una perspectiva frontal del plan. Este dibujo es sin
escala, por lo que la relación entre los tamaños de las piezas en el proyecto no representa necesariamente a las
piezas reales. El dibujo sólo se muestra donde van las piezas y cómo se verá cuando se muevan las piezas.
El ambón se moverá a la izquierda y se colocara adelante. Todas las lecturas (es decir, la primera lectura, el
salmo, la segunda lectura y el Evangelio) se proclamaran allí.
El ambón se utilizará también para predicar la homilía y rezar las oraciones universales.
El icono de la Virgen del Perpetuo Socorro tendrá un lugar permanente en el santuario. Ya que ella es la Patrona de
Nuestra Iglesia, estará de forma permanente en el lado derecho de la pared detrás del altar.
El Tabernáculo también se moverá hacia el santuario. Será colocado en la pared en el lado izquierdo de la alcoba del
icono de la Virgen del Perpetuo Socorro. Ya que desde que hicimos la capilla listo y reservada para el Santísimo
Sacramento las 24 horas, el lugar actual del Tabernáculo es innecesaria. Para dar al Tabernáculo un lugar apropiado,
estará detrás del area del santuario donde se le dara el honor apropiado durante y después de la Misa.
Otras piezas que permanecerán en el santuario será el altar, la silla del Celebrante,la silla del Diacono y la cruz

Year of Mercy
December 8, 2015 November 20, 2016
Come join us for 7pm Mass on December 8th, a holy day of obligation for the
Immaculate Conception of Mary. We
can all usher in the Year of Mercy by
performing an act of mercy. There will
be donation boxes in the vestibule for
you to donate gently used clothing,
coats and blankets until December 20th.
USCCB… How can we show others the mercy of God? We say that God is compassionate, but we ignore the
poor. We say that God loves us and has mercy on us, but we hold grudges against our friends. Our actions
need to authentically reflect God's mercy
Albany...Marilyn Smith at the City Manager’s office is excited we will participate in the Homeless Memorial.
The memorial will in fact be at 5:30 on Monday Dec 21 at City Hall. The needed items are, blankets, rain gear,
socks, thermal underwear, stocking caps, gloves, hooded sweatshirts, and gently used coats will be collected
for Albany Helping Hands, Signs of Victory and Jackson Street Youth Shelter guests.
Cash donations are greatly needed for the TOTO fund (A gas voucher, bus ticket or minor vehicle repair might
be provided to persons in an emergency situation. Fish administers the Toto Fund which provides persons
with a bus/train ticket to help them return to their sources of support). Cash donations will be given to FISH.
Retirement Fund for Religious
Support elderly religious. A parishioner writes, “As a Catholic school student
from grades K–12, I was formed to be the person I am by many religious
brothers and sisters, and I am forever grateful.” Show your appreciation for
the senior Catholic sisters, brothers, and religious order priests who made a
positive difference in so many lives. Please give generously to next week’s
collection for the Retirement Fund for Religious.
Apoye a los religiosos y religiosas ancianos.
Image from –
Uno de los feligreses escribe, “Como estudiante católico entre K y 12, fui
formado como la persona que soy por muchos hermanas y hermanos religiosos, y estaré agradecido para
siempre”. Muestre su agradecimiento a los hermanos, hermanas y sacerdotes de órdenes religiosas quienes
marcaron la diferencia en tantas vidas. Sea generoso en su donativo a la colecta de la semana próxima del
Fondo para la Jubilación de Religiosos.

The beautiful Christmas Wreaths are produced by Albany Helping Hands
guests and volunteers at the Garden Market and Farm. The wreaths are approximate 24 inches in diameter and are currently being constructed from
fresh Nobel and Douglas Fir boughs.
Members of the youth group will sell Official Albany Helping Hands Redemption Certificates for one Christmas Wreath. These certificates will be turned in for a
wreath of their choice at any of the following locations: Albany Helping Hands Christmas
Tree Lot at the old K-Mart (3100 Pacific Blvd SE), the tree lot at Ninth and Oak in Albany, the
Tree Lot at Heritage Mall (by Red Robin), the Albany Helping Hands Garden Market (5150

the opening on November 27.
The sales by St. Mary’s youth will take place after Masses through December 13th, 2015.
Customers purchasing our wreaths will be giving to a pair of local non-profit organizations
with proceeds staying local. Profits help provide local work for Albany Helping Hands Shelter

What does St. Mary’s Church mean to you?
Father Cit would like to create a logo for the church. He wants something that encompasses the essence of our church. If you are
interested, sketch out an idea and submit it to the office. Father Cit will use the ideas to help him create the final logo.
This will be open to all ages. You don’t even need to be an artist! It is not a competition, just a way for everyone to have a chance
to express what the church means to them. We will take submissions until the end of December. Father will work on the final
product starting in January.
Thank you to all who will share your ideas with us.
