From the Pastor's Desk - December 16, 2012

Dear Parishioners,
If you have not already done so, I encourage everyone to receive the sacrament of Reconciliation in preparation for Christmas. This week on Tuesday evening we will have our Advent Penance Service at 7:00 PM. Also, please see the schedule in the bulletin this week for other confession times as I have scheduled many extra times for confession. Of course, you can always go to another parish to go to confession. Included in this week’s bulletin is an insert with an examination of conscience on it for your use in preparing for confession. We celebrate at Christmas that Jesus came as our Savior to save us from our sins, so it is in the sacrament of Reconciliation that we experience that he does this for us.

Once again, I invite you to stop by the rectory this Sunday evening between 6:00 and 9:00 P.M. for the annual Christmas open house. The decorations this year will be those of Advent and you can learn about these Advent customs. Appetizers and drinks will be available. Bring the whole family. Visit with your fellow parishioners.

Have a blessed and grace-filled week.

God bless,  Fr. Gutowski
