Advent—already? It is getting close. Our culture has forgotten how to wait. However, we are a people of anticipation. We are waiting . . . for someone’s return. That Someone is Jesus! Advent is NOT SHOPPING SEASON—Advent, it’s the month before Christmas, it’s about preparing for Jesus’ return. Please use Advent 2014 to prepare to meet Jesus at His return. Please attend the Advent mission and get to know Immanuel, God-with-us, Jesus better—so you will know Him when He comes!
The mission will take place Sunday, November 30th—Thursday, December 4th (5 nights!) at 7:00 p.m. each of the nights.
REMINDER that November has five Sundays, and that means we will be asking you to please consider a donation to our St. Vincent de Paul Society Conference of OLG/St. Rose de Lima/St. Clare. Funds are low and the need is great in our community right now, and St. Vincent de Paul relies totally on your continued support and generosity. You may make a donation at any time of the year—just place your donation in an envelope marked ‘St. Vincent de Paul’ and place in the collection baskets at any Mass. Thank you for your consideration!
We acknowledge Christ really present in the Blessed Sacrament; therefore, adoration of the Incarnate God is most worthy. Eucharistic Adoration is prayer before the Blessed Sacrament exposed in a monstrance, continued by successive worshipers day and night without intermission.
Can you spend an hour with Jesus? Please visit our St. Joseph Adoration Chapel located at 107 Union Street. If you would like to commit to an hour, contact James San Fillippo at 228-671-1835.
Available Hours: Sunday: 9-10 & 10-11 am; 3-4 & 5-6 pm; Monday: 1-2 am; Tuesday: 12-1, 1-2 & 2-3 am; Wednesday: 2-3 am; Friday: 5-6 pm & 11 pm-12 am; Saturday: 3-4 am, 7-8 am & 11 am-12 pm; 5-6, 8-9 & 10-11 pm
