SEASON OF ADVENT

ADVENT means THE COMING.  The coming of Jesus again. The coming of the new Liturgical Year with the reading of Luke's gospel during the year.  The coming of Christmas, his birthday.  May we all remember Christ in Christmas in all the shopping, cooking, footballing, celebrating for family and friends.  Remember to speak of him, eat with him and talk about him this season.  May he be with us all.

STEWARDSHIP

STEWARDSHIP MEANS "SACRIFICIAL GIVING" OF YOUR TIME AND TREASURE.  IF YOU ARE USED TO GIVING $1 IN THE COLLECTION BASKET, JUST GIVE A LITTLE MORE.  IF YOU HAVE KEPT UP WITH INFLATION, AND YOU ARE GIVING A LITTLE MORE, YOU CAN PROBABLY AFFORD TO GIVE, SAY, $11 ON SUNDAYS.  ALSO, KEEP IN MIND THE SPECIAL COLLECTION FOR "NEIGHBORS IN NEED."  THE NEED IS GREAT!  IF YOU CAN GIVE OF YOUR TIME, WE ARE IN NEED OF USHERS AND CHOIR MEMBERS.  VOLUNTEERS CAN CALL PAT AT THE OFFICE TO MAKE AN APPLICATION.

NEWER.  St.Francis and Pope Francis.  A delightful comparison between the saint and the pope.
