Pastor's Column

December 10, 2017

Attention Parishioners,

Our roof restoration project for the Church is projected to last through the month of November.  During this time, Adoration will be in the chapel. 5:30 pm Mass will continue to be in the Church.

Dear Parish Family:

Advent is more than simply a season. It is an “attitude!” The season exists to remind us of the fundamental way-of-being that ought to be characteristic of the disciple of Jesus the Christ. We are challenged to be “alert” and “attentive” to the “signs” of God’s presence every day. In other words, Advent is a season of hope; but hope is not hope if its object is seen. Thus, Advent ought to stir within the human soul our basic and ancient longing for God. Among the most endearing memories from my childhood is that of my siblings and parents and me gathered around the Advent Wreath. Its candles illuminated the darkness of our living room while German Christmas carols played softly in the background. Despite the squirming of little children and the hunger pangs of all awaiting supper, there was usually a brief, but precious, moment of silence. Time stood still and God was with us! Treasure every moment of this brief season; and may you always be ready to be surprised by God!

Yours in Christ,
Father Bill Foley
