WILL YOU CHANGE?
John the Baptizer had his priorities straight. He was not the star. Rather he was the opening act, getting people ready for Jesus, the main event. And as such he did his job well, preparing people for the one who was still to come. He preached repentance that their hearts would be open to receive the baptism of the Spirit. The new world Jesus comes to bring requires that people will be willing to change. Are you?

|THE POLISH HOLY NAME
thanks everyone who helped make
pierogi and all who purchased the pierogi from them. The proceeds from
the sale of the pierogi will go to the Church.
This is the Second Sunday of Advent, so let us place ourselves in the presence of
Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament to receive His invitation to repentance. St. John
the Baptist appeared in the desert proclaiming repentance. Let us spend time
with Jesus in our Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration Chapel.
The Chapel is located in the convent of Holy Cross. Open
hours: Tuesday 11:00 a.m., Thursday 4:00 p.m. and Saturday 11:00 a.m. For
information call 763-788- 4729 or 612-781-4806. Thank you.
|PLEASE REMEMBER TO KEEP ON SAVING ALUMINUM CANS -
Bags of aluminum cans (pop or beer) can be put in the
containers by the doors of the church or by the garages behind the rectory.
Questions? Call Sister Benita evenings at 612-789-9168.
