December 9, 2018 | The Second Sunday of Advent
Pope Francis’ Prayer Intention for December 2018:
Evangelization – In the Service of the Transmission of Faith
That people, who are involved in the service and transmission of faith, may find, in their dialogue with culture, a language suited to the conditions of the present time.
2019 Parish Envelopes
A new calendar year is fastly approaching! Parish envelopes will be available for pickup beginning the weekend of November 17/18 in the back of the Church. Like last year, labels will be placed on the top of the envelope boxes. If you have used envelopes this year, please be sure to only pick up a box with your number and name on it. If you have not used envelopes but would now like to, please stop by the parish office to pick up a box and to register as a parishioner.
Pre-Authorized Giving (P.A.G.)
Please consider switching to Pre-Authorized Giving (P.A.G.), it’s an automated withdrawal which is simpler for both you and the parish. Please contact Margaret, the Parish Office Manager, for more information at (416) 926-7110.
Advent Vespers & Mass
Come join and mark the Advent season with our Advent Vespers and Mass on Saturday, December 15 at 5:00PM. This wonderful service combines the ancient office of Vespers with the Liturgy of the Word and Liturgy of the Eucharist. This annual tradition helps us prepare for Christmas. Join us for a time of contemplation with prayer, chant, psalmody, and choral music. All are welcome.
The Basil Brigade Needs You!
On Sunday, December 23 following the 12:00PM Mass, join our cleaning and decorating party. Many hands help to make for light work. We will spend the afternoon sprucing up the church, preparing for the Christmas services on the two following days. RSVP not required. Contact Michael for more information: email@example.com
Sunday Missals & Blue Books
The 2019 Living with Christ Sunday Missals are now available for sale through the parish office for $5.00. We will also be offering an illustrated version, Sunday Missal for Young Catholics for $10.00 suitable for children. These should be available in the coming weeks. The Advent Little Blue Books also available for sale in the parish office. These books serve as a wonderful tool for guided prayer and reflection during the Advent season.
