Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ the King - November 22, 2015
Dear parishioners and friends in Christ,
Can you believe it? All the "holiday season" commercials, decorations, and even music already! Before we dive into the commercial sea-son of "giving & getting" let us first give thanks to Almighty God this Thursday, November 26th as we celebrate our annual Thanksgiving Day Mass at 9:00 am. Make plans to join us as our Parish Family gathers around the Lord’s Table to give thanks in the true spirit of the holiday.
All Liturgical Ministers are encouraged to participate in our annual Morning of Recollectionnext Saturday, November 28th beginning with Mass at 8:30. Parishioners are invited to partici-pate in the Mass. Liturgical Ministers will gather in the Fr. Behan Hall immediately after for reflec-tions on the Holy Year of Mercy and breakout groups according to ministries (ie, Lectors, Ex-traordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, Ushers, Greeters, Music Ministers, Altar Linen Ladies and Sacristans). Lector workbooks will be distrib-uted at this meeting. Registration is required. Please contact the Parish Center Desk, ext. 100, so that we can plan for refreshments.
One again, I am very pleased to announce that Father Charles Srion has been assigned to our Parish Family beginning November 30th. "Father Charlie" will replace Father Jerry who will be leaving us. We all look forward to welcoming our new priest later this month. Our prayerful best wishes are with Fr. Jerry during his continuing health related recuperation.
Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to all of the families of those murdered in the terrorist attacks in Paris. Let us be grateful to God for our Nation and the protection we depend upon. as we gather this Thursday for Thanksgiving Day.
Happy Thanksgiving, and God Bless you!
Msgr."Father Bob" Clerkin
