Please mark your calendar for our Parish Penance Service, December 18 at 7:00 PM in the church.
The letter and schedule for Advent/Christmas 2019 have two different dates and both were wrong.
It has been a while since we have celebrated a Parish Penance Service—instead we offered “The Light Is On”
program. I believe it is a good and powerful prayer experience to come together and seek forgiveness in the
Mercy of God as a community. Our sins not only affect us personally, but they affect the people in our lives
and our community. Advent is a wonderful time to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation. We prepare our
homes for the coming of Christmas. Why not prepare our soul for the coming of Christ? The spiritual and
physical are more connected than we realize. We find the light and hope of the Christ Child in the depths of
our souls. Please consider giving yourself the gift of forgiveness as you prepare for Christmas by celebrating
the Sacrament of Reconciliation this Advent—Wednesday, December 18th at 7pm Church.
