spell to reflect on these important questions as a means of preparing for the
coming of Christ anew in our hearts this Advent season. This reflection period
is scheduled for Fri., Dec. 4th from to at

On November 11th as we commemorate Veterans Day by recalling the sacrifices of our service men and women, we are mindful of those currently serving our country, both here and overseas. Praying for their safe return to their friends and loved ones, we lift them up: Almighty God, we commend to your gracious care and keeping all the men and women of our armed forces at home and abroad. Defend them day by day with your heavenly grace; strengthen them in their trials and temptations; give them courage to face the perils which beset them; and grant them a sense of your abiding presence wherever they may be; through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Father Thomas could use some adult help with Youth Group activities during the coming season of Advent. The parish has very capable and well trained college students to chaperone, but he prefers to also have an older person or two at activities he cannot personally oversee. The Advent season involves a lot of penance services at which Father is scheduled to help and youth events are typically held on Sunday. Please contact the parish office at 445.9668 if you are interested. Chaperones are required to pass a background check, which consists of getting fingerprinted.
MASS IN POLISH
