December 8 - FROM THE PASTOR'S DESK
Tomorrow / Tonight - we will have our annual Advent-Christmas Choral Celebration beginning at 7:00 p.m. It's a great way to celebrate our patronal feast, experience the wonder of the music of Advent and Christmas, and have fun with family and friends. We feature four of the parish choirs, each with an offering of their gifts for music. We'll have a special appearance of Charlie with his harmonica, too!
The whole program is only 90 minutes long, finishing with a social that begins at 8:30 ... not too late to come for a glass of juice and a cookie to continue the celebration! Bring the whole family ... bring your friends. We also invite you to bring an item of non-perishable food for our Society of St Vincent de Paul, for distribution at Christmas.
Our annual Mass for the Anointing of the Sick will take place this Thursday at 11:00 a.m. Any parishioner in need of the sacrament of the Sick is invited to join us that day for Mass and the anointing. All are welcome to the Mass in honour of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
Each year, the parish provides a special opportunity to celebrate the sacrament of Penance during Advent and Lent. Since I arrived, we have had the tradition of the "Day of Confessions" in Lent, and a communal penance celebration in Advent. This year, I have made arrangements to have a "Day of Confessions" during Advent as well. It is scheduled for Wednesday, December 18, from
10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
I have secured the help of a few friends: Fr. Luis
Carlos Pinheiro, of Holy Cross Parish, will be here from 10:00 a.m. to 12 noon, for confessions in Portuguese. Fr. John Van Damme will be here to assist in the evening, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Bishop Sherlock will be available during different parts of the day. (Please note: Mass will be celebrated in the morning that day.)
Last Saturday, some members of the K of C set up the outdoor Nativity Scene on Trafalgar Street. This is an important sign for passers-by that "Jesus is the reason for the season." While they worked hard outside, our sacristans (and helper) were working inside to prepare the church for Advent. Thanks to all for your work, and for helping us get ready for Advent!
Don't forget: next week, we will welcome Fr. John Pirt, Director of Vocations. He will visit our three elementary schools on Friday, and preach at all the Masses on the weekend.
Have a blessed week +
