Please note to your right—the Mass times for December 8th, Immaculate Conception, is a HOLY DAY of OBLIGATION = have to go to Mass day. And on your calendar for later in the week, also to your right, is the December 11th, Advent Penance / Reconciliation Service at 7 PM. We plan on having 10 Confessors and it should not exceed one hour. Leave when you need to after individual confessions.

To conclude a retreat on Advent Gregorian Chants Mass will be celebrated in Latin--(Novus Ordo)-- @ St. Mary's by Schola Cantus Angelorum.

Message From the Pastor

Happy New Year / Epiphany

It is hard to believe that we are already in the New Year 2015! And yet, here we are given another opportunity to renew our commitments in faith, in life, and in our spirituality. As we enter into this year devoted to the CONSECRATED LIFE, we will take this topic up for Celebrations of Faith in March. And as the world - wide Catholic Church prepares for the Synod on the Family in the Fall, our Celebrations of Faith will take up that topic in October. Take time now to resolve as an individual and/or family to take up some spiritual task, whether it is a resolution to ask God’s blessing for every meal, to pray morning or night prayer, to make an effort to take advantage of Sunday or even daily Eucharist, the Sacrament of Penance, and times of devotion to the Blessed Sacrament in the parish.

Make a place on your calendar to take part in religious education for your children, adult Bible study, or any of our special programs. An important one is coming up on Sunday, JANUARY 18th at 6:30 PM with Bishop Peter Smith speaking on Life Issues at the Sunday evening Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and Rosary for Life. It will be held in the church.

Gratefully, Father Philip Waibel, OSB, Pastor
