Pastor's Message - December 14, 2014“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me;
he has sent me to bring glad tidings to the poor, to heal the brokenhearted,
to proclaim liberty to the captives and release to the prisoners, to announce
a year of favor from the Lord and a day of vindication by our God.” Isaiah 6
Dear Parishioners and Friends,
This weekend we celebrate “Gaudate” or “Joy-Filled” Sunday. The third “pink” colored candle will be lit on our Advent wreath. My gratitude to the Boy Scouts who will be assisting in setting up all our Christmas decorations and giant trees on Monday evening.
Join us for the St. Rita Advent Penance Service with individual Reconciliation, this Wednesday, December 17th at 7:00pm here in Church. If it has been awhile since you have celebrated the Sacrament, don’t worry, we will have materials available to guide you through everything. It will be an anxiety-free experience of God’s mercy and grace. Bring the whole family and the kids too! We all need the opportunity to experience the blessings of the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
