†   December 5, 2021;  2nd Sunday of Advent

“And this is my prayer: that your love may increase ever more and more in knowledge and every kind of perception, to discern what is of value…” 
(Philippians 1:9-10)

During the Christmas shopping season it is easy to get caught up in the frenzy of buying gifts.  But, is that “gift” truly an expression of your love for the other person.  Or, are you just fulfilling your “obligation” to give them something?  To grow in friendship with someone, you need to spend time with them, learn what is of value to them.  Maybe this year, buy less “stuff” and spend more time with those you love.

Family Prayer Time

****Family Prayer Time:  Every First Monday of the Month at 7:00 pm,  we will gather at the Church for Family Prayer Time.  At 7:00 pm on all the other Mondays of the month, please pray for families on your own.  This will be our designated prayer time and all can join in this parish-wide time of prayer. So, on Monday nights at 7 pm, whether we gather together or we are on our own, stop whatever you are doing, and pray…
