    This year, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, usually celebrated December 8th, is moved to Monday, December 9th, since the second Sunday of Advent takes precedence on the 8th. Not a “holyday of obligation” this year, it is still an opportunity to honor Mary, the Mother of Jesus, under the title of Immaculate Conception. Mass will be celebrated at 8 am.


    This holiday season we are participating for the first time in a program to make this Christmas brighter for our seminarians studying for the priesthood at St. Joseph’s Seminary, Dunwoodie, Yonkers, NY. Our Seminarians have little or no earning power during their six-eight years of formation, but they still have personal expenses. Whether their need is gas to travel to parish assignments, an unexpected car repair, or maybe just enough black socks to get through the week, they can use a helping hand. Our generosity in helping them to meet their everyday expenses that occur is a great sign of support for their generous response to God’s call, affirming them in their desire to dedicate their lives to Christ and serve the Catholic faithful.
    On a Christmas Tree in the main church lobby are hanging 30 envelopes. You are invited to take one, follow the instruction enclosed inside and return to our church by December 15th.


    Our parish is collecting Christmas gifts to be distributed to children and mothers who are assisted by local Catholic organization Hour Children. You are invited to take an “ornament” from the “giving tree” in the main church lobby - on the ornament is the information needed to purchase a new, unused item. All gifts are to be returned to church No later than Sunday, December 15th. Gifts should be returned Unwrapped, with the “ornament” taped to it. Thank you for your kindness.
