Bring your favorite dish or dessert to share if you have one but most of all, just bring yourself.  All parishioners from all Masses, including students, are welcome.

Season of Advent

Beginning the Church's liturgical year, Advent, which began on Sunday, December 3 this year, is the season encompassing the four Sundays (and weekdays) leading up to the celebration of Christmas.  The Advent season is a time of preparation that directs our hearts and minds to Christ's second coming at the end of time and also to the anniversary of the Lord's birth on Christmas. The final days of Advent, from December 17 to December 24, focus particularly on our preparation for the celebrations of the Nativity of our Lord (Christmas).
