"The four weeks of Advent focus on waiting for the Second Coming of the Lord in glory with remembering His first coming in history. In this way Advent is a preparation for Christmas. But the primary emphasis is on looking forward to the Lord’s final coming at the end of time. This focus is geared to awaken the believer to a recognition of the Lord’s daily advents into life now in what are often referred to as grace-filled moments..." Following the Star by Reverend Mark Boyer
Advent is a time for us to prepare our minds and our hearts for the coming of God. It is a time set aside for us to prepare to receive the one and only gift we need: Jesus. At this busy time of year it’s easy to occupy ourselves with so many other things that we don’t have a place for the nativity scene in the shelter of our hearts! Yet, God wants to send His Son into our hearts as the ultimate expression of His love. To help prepare for the gift of life, Jesus our Lord and Savior, open your heart and mind to become closer to Christ by engaging in prayer, advent activities, and consider sharing your blessing this Advent with the homeless, poor, or disadvantaged.
“Our Lord made us a great promise: “The measure you measure with will be measured back to you” (Luke 6:38). On the weekend of November 2 and 3, I will be inviting parishioners to reflect upon this promise, as well as our responsibility to care for our parish home. The following Sunday, Commitment Sunday, we will make our new financial commitment to the parish for the new year.” - Fr. Brendan Manson, Administrator. Read the full letter here. english | español.
