The Season of Advent is Here!
The Season of Advent is here! This is the special time of year for our preparation to celebrate Christmas!
We put up decorations and prepare to send out our Christmas greetings! That is important, but we must also keep in mind the real meaning of the season…the Birth of Jesus Christ!
Are we truly preparing our hearts to celebrate the Jesus, who is the Son of God?
During this particular Advent Season we are also welcoming nominations for members of our Parish Pastoral Council. We usually do this during Lent, but because of the pandemic, we could not do so.
Nomination forms are available at this time. We will have a discernment process in January to select new members.
So, yes, we prepare to celebrate Christmas with our family and friends. Let’s do so safely and prudently. Let us never forget to truly prepare our hearts to welcome the newborn Christ child!
And let us continue to pray for one another.
