From The Pastor’s Desk
I look forward to the Christmas Concert Sunday afternoon at 4:00 p.m., in the church. All of our choirs and musicians do a tremendous job each year. You don’t want to miss out. Hope to see you there!
My thanks to all of the volunteers who will make this year’s St. Nicholas Breakfast another great success. This breakfast, along with the Christmas Concert, are some of the highlights of the season. It is always fun to bring our parish family together. Thank you.
Thursday, December 8, is the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception. The Immaculate Conception is a Holy Day of Obligation. All Catholics are bound to attend Mass. The special Holy Day schedule is as follows:
Wednesday, December 7 7:00 p.m.
Thursday, December 8 8:00 a.m. (all school) and 12:00 p.m.
The parishes in the neighborhood and around the city all have different schedules. If you can’t make it to one of our Masses, be sure to check with another parish.
The Annual Parish Stewardship mailing was sent out a few weeks back. I encourage you to complete your pledge card for 2017, and return it to the parish office. Some might be concerned that our normal stewardship will suffer as our Capital Campaign succeeds. However, we should be confident that our parish family will rise to meet the obligations of supporting our mission and ministries. We have a long tradition of support and generosity. Thank you!
Sincerely yours in Christ,
-Fr. Aaron Esch, Pastor
