I hope you’re having a good week so far as we prepare for Christmas. Here is the latest news around the parish and school.
- Of course, the main focus this week is preparing for Christmas and Christmas itself. Please join us as we celebrate Mass on Christmas Eve at 4:30 PM and 10:00 PM. Christmas Day Mass will be at 9:00 AM. I look forward to celebrating the Lord’s birth and adoring him together with all of you.
- Have you been to confession for Advent yet? If not, there are still a few opportunities. We will have confessions Tuesday and Wednesday at 7:00 PM and on Christmas Eve at 3:00 PM. Prepare your heart spiritually to welcome Christ by receiving God’s merciful forgiveness in confession.
- There has been a lot of work on the school addition this week. Work was done on the roof and plumbing. Here is one of the latest pictures. For a full gallery of the progress of the addition, check out our school galleries page at http://www.churchofsttimothy.org/#/school-galleries
- As a reminder, there are no faith formation classes on Wednesday.
- This Christmas, you will once again receive the gift of a book from the parish, thanks to the generosity of some of our parishioners. It is a short, easy-to-read book that I hope you will find helpful in your spiritual growth.
- I look forward to hearing Deacon Ron preach this weekend.
- As always, there is a lot happening behind the scenes but there is a brief update. I look forward to seeing many of you at the Masses on Christmas. If you’re away visiting family or friends, I hope you have a great Christmas and safe travels. Let’s continue to pray for each other as a parish.
