You are welcome to browse our site and find information on the many facets of our parish life! Please take a look at the calendar, as well, to find out what is coming up!
Sunday, December 14, 2014 is the THIRD Sunday in the Advent Season, and the rose-colored vestments signal the anticipatory “joy” that fills our hearts as the coming of the Messiah is close at hand. In the Catholic Church of the Latin language the opening line of the liturgy cried out: “REJOICE in the Lord always, Again, I say REJOICE!” The Lord is near” The Latin word for “rejoice” is gaudete and thus this third Sunday of Advent became known as “Gaudete Sunday.” Today’s liturgy again tells of the role of Isaiah and John the Baptist, prophets of Advent, as they each anticipate the coming of the Messiah. Moving joyfully through the Advent season to the magnificence of the Christmas event, we come one-step closer to the Birth of the Savior. May the joy radiating from the liturgy of this Sunday bring a wondrous feeling to all of us!

Are you a “registered” member of the Parish Family? “Registration” means that you are NOW a member of the Parish Family — not to be confused with all those who received their sacraments here at one time but are no longer members NOW. One indication of registration is that you get the mailings that we send to all registered homes. If you do not, we ask that you stop in at the rectory and take a few moments to register so that we can share with you all the facets of our parish life.
