Advent Wreath
Reflection from the Pastor

This Sunday is already the First Sunday of Advent! It doesn’t seem possible, and yet here we are. This week is an excellent time to make plans for how you will spend your Advent. I have a few suggestions that I hope are helpful:

  • Set up an Advent wreath in your home and pray
    each day with your family
  • Assist at daily Mass
  • Make a good and sincere Confession and encourage your family to do the same. Think how peaceful your home can be if everyone living there is in a state of grace!
  • Mark on your schedule and make plans to go to Mass on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception (December 8). It’s a holy day of obligation and our national feast day in the United States.
  • Attend Mass on December 12 for Our Lady of Guadalupe and go to the celebration afterwards at 7:30 pm.
  • Donate money to charity in proportion to what you are going to spend on Christmas gifts. A good charity here in our parish is St. Vincent de Paul.
  • Pray for your family members and friends who don’t practice their faith and offer up your trials and difficulties for their conversion.
