Dear Friends:
This Advent Season promises to be an exciting adventure for those
who choose to grow closer to God.
As we light the first candle of our Advent wreath, we embrace our
Christian calling to be the light of the world. We don’t hide our
Chrstian light, but let it shine for all th world to see!
This Advent, Pope Benedict’s universal prayer is for all to Open
Wide the Doors to Christ. Beginning this Friday, we will have a
three part Friday night series on Opening Wide the Doors to Christ.
Please see page 5 for more information on this exciting series which
includes Tim Staples, John and Barbara Bertrand (Fr. Jacob’s parents), and a beautiful Posada celebration.
Also, don’t forget the other celebrations in the month of December;
including the Feast of the Immaculate Conception (December 8),
Our Lady of Guadalupe Masses (December 11 & 12), our Annual
Church Lighting ceremony (December 12), our Advent Reconciliation Service (December 15), and Simbang Gabi (December 16-24).
Just a note: This year, due to the difficulty in finding priests for our
Advent Reconciliation services, we will be having only one service
on the 15th at 7:00 pm. However, Father Jacob and I will be available for confessions on Tuesdays from 7:15am to 7:45am, as well as
our regular Saturday confession times (8:00 am)
May this Advent Season be time of hope and peace for you and
your loved ones!
God Bless you!
Father John
1st Week of Advent
The word ‘Advent’ is from the Latin ‘Adventus,’ which means
‘coming.’ Advent is the beginning of a new liturgical year (in the
Western churches), and encompasses the span of time from the
fourth Sunday before Christmas, until the Nativity of Our Lord is
During Advent, as Mary welcomed the Lord, the faithful are asked
to prepare themselves worthily to celebrate the anniversary of the
Lord’s coming into the world as the incarnate God of love, to renew their souls as fitting homes for the Lord in the Eucharist and to
make themselves ready for His final coming as judge, at death and
at the end of the world.
