Notes from the Pastor
Two cool little things:
1) How to know the First Sunday of Advent, here's an old Catholic way:
St. Andrew the King
Three days and three weeks before Christmas comes in.
Three days after or three days before,
Advent Sunday knocks at the door!
The other item is a prayer called the Christmas Novena. It is customary to recite it 15 times a day from November 30 (St. Andrew Day) until Christmas. Here it is:
blessed be the hour and moment in which the Son of God was born of the most

Hints of Christmas are all
around. I see the decorations and I hear the talk of the
Christians. I also don't normally encourage people to visit the
Here is my Christmas Wish List: Since I already have everything I need, I would like you to bring some gifts for the poor. Among needed items are gloves, new socks, new underwear, and canned goods are always a big help. Also, in the back of the church you will find a giving tree. Please snag a tag from it and buy the listed item and wrap it. Be sure to leave a tag on the outside as to what is inside. We certainly don't want to give a little girl a pair of big bib overalls. And even worse, you don't want to give a baby doll to grandpa.
While giving gifts, throw a few pieces of bread out for the birds. They have so few friends and I have so many.

Week 7 - I look like a miniature doll, with my complete fingers, toes and ears. If you could touch my lips, I would quickly bend away. My first teeth buds are starting to form.
