MESSAGE FROM FATHER JENSON
As we move into Advent we seek to prepare a warm and inviting place in our hearts for Jesus at Christmas. Turning to Mary to help us is an excellent way to do this. The Holy Day of the Immaculate Conception is this Monday, Dec. 8. Come and seek the Virgin Mother Mary’s help in developing a hunger to encounter her son Jesus this Christmas in a new and deeper way. This holy day is the patronal feast day of the Catholic Church in the United States and as such the obligation to attend mass on this holy day is never dispensed even when it falls the day before or after Sunday as is the case for all other holy days. May our Lady, Mother of our Savior, pray for us this Advent.
In the bulletin you will begin to see a more detailed financial outline of how the parish is doing. As we begin the Church’s new year we are going to let you know what the parish needs to cover its budget for the year and how we are doing in meeting that. Not a lot can be done in these tough economic times, but if you see a dip in the parish financial situation and could give a few dollars more, please be a champion for the parish and consider doing so.
Father Glen Jenson, Pastor
