On Thursday, November 21st seven young people from our parish leave for NCYC in Indianapolis. They will join over 20,000 Catholic teenagers from across the country to celebrate the theme Blessed, Broken, and Given. Please keep Jack Accurso, Marissa Crowe, Ian Dibble, Vicki Loniewski, Jack Moffat, Katie Schulz and Nathan White in your prayers. All seven are serving at Youth Ambassadors which means they will introduce two of the breakout sessions during the 3 day event too. There are a total of 5 breakout rounds.
You may take part in the event via livestream: http://www.ncyc.info/livestream
Over 85 families from our Faith Formation and School gathered on Saturday, November 12th and Tuesday, November 19th to prepare for Advent. They learned about the many prophets and holy people of Advent. “John the Baptist” opened the evening with Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord. Special thanks to Jack Moffat for portraying John the Baptist. Every family made an Advent wreath together which Fr. Bob blessed before they went home. The parent session included a visit from our “Blessed Mother Mary” portrayed by Samantha Michel. She will repeat her reflective performance at our Feast of Immaculate Conception Mass on Monday, December 9th at 7pm.
Special thanks to the generosity of our parishioners which provided the supplies for the Advent wreaths.
