HOPE: Happy 1st Sunday of Advent – Happy New Year!

Happy New Year in our beautiful Catholic Church, also the start of our Advent Season!

We understand the purpose of Advent is to prepare each of us for a deep, person, life-changing encounter with Jesus this Christmas season…doing good deeds with the help of the 14 Works of Mercy, as well as almsgiving is an opportunity to deepen our Advent experiences.  Did you know this almsgiving is the origin of Christmas gift-giving?!

Now is the day to prepare for Christ coming in a new way in your life this Christmas!  Let us know what works of mercy and almsgiving you find most meaningful in your Advent journey!  Happy First Sunday of Advent – May you be filled with HOPE of Christ’s second coming, “In mercy Lord let me stand!”  Blessings!
