– ADVENT. As we continue through this season of Advent, we have numerous opportunities to prepare for the coming of our King. May our willingness to enter into the silence — even if it’s just as we drive from one place to another — help us hear the voice of the Lord speaking to us. Having our hearts, minds, and souls open to receive the newborn King makes sense of all of our preparation.
– DOVE TREE. Thank you to all who have made the Dove Tree Project a great act of charity. Thanks especially to Theresa & Jim Phipps, Melanie & Adam McMinn, Kelley Coppens, Carol Burns, and everyone else who has purchased gifts, carried gifts, and will help distribute gifts. What a beautiful act of generosity. THANK YOU!
– BISHOP SIEGEL’S ARRIVAL. This week, the diocese will officially welcome Bishop Joseph Siegel, the sixth Bishop of Evansville. Evening Prayer on Thursday, December 14, at 5:30 is open to the public. I encourage you to take part if you’d like. The Installation Mass on Friday is by ticket only. However, Bishop Siegel will offer the 10:30 Mass on Sunday, December 17 at St. Benedict Cathedral.
– PARISH & SCHOOL STAFF. As Christmas draws near, let’s be grateful for our parish and school staffs. They contribute their talent to the mission of our parish with generosity. Won’t you to join me in thanking them for the selfless, excellent service they provide?
– NO ANNUAL FUND. Please remember that there will be no separate Annual Fund this year. Please include your Annual Fund gifts in your regular Sunday giving. Thanks.
