Through the generosity of our parishioners, we are able to assist many families at Christmas with food and gifts for children. Most of those we assist are not members of our parish. We realize that some of our own parishioners may find themselves in tough times and could use a little assistance at Christmas. If you find yourself is such a situation, your fellow parishioners would like to help. You can privately let Fr. Jeff or Fr. Jeremy know of your need for food or gifts for children at Christmas, by December 17, and we will discreetly get something to you before Christmas. They will keep this confidential and private. Any parishioners wishing to support this effort are welcome to donate.

OUR LADY OF LA SALETTE ORGAN REDEDICATION CONCERT
Featuring Dave Wagner, Organist
The faith community at Our Lady of La Salette is pleased to extend to our Families of Parishes an invitation to join us for a special organ concert as we rededicate our recently restored pipe organ. The concert will take place on Sunday, December 12 at 4:00 p.m. and will feature Dr. David O. Wagner.
David Wagner is a concert organist who has performed throughout the United States, in England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, France, Hungary and in Russia. He holds the Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the University of Michigan where he studied with Marilyn Mason. In addition to his work as a solo performer, Wagner has also been organist and harpsichordist with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. Dave is the recipient of the Palmer Christian award from the University of Michigan School of Music, for postdoctoral achievement in the field of music performance, and the Arts Achievement Award from Wayne State University. As a classical music broadcaster, Dave Wagner has a national reputation and is heard regularly as the morning/afternoon host on WRCJ in Detroit.
The organ concert will include works by J. S. Bach, Claude Daquin, and David Willcox, with selections from the Advent and Christmas season. David will delight listeners with his amazing technical skill and engaging, colorful commentary.
We would like to heartily welcome all members of our Families of Parishes to join us for this special event. Our Lady of La Salette is located at 2600 Harvard Road at Coolidge Highway in Berkley. For further information contact the parish at (248) 541-3762.

New COVID Liturgical Protocols
Those who are fully vaccinated may wear a face-covering and social distance but are no longer required to do so in churches.
Those who have not been fully vaccinated are to continue wearing face-coverings and to practice social distancing to protect themselves and others in churches. Because a parish community – and our society – requires mutual trust and a commitment to the common good, each individual is asked to make the best decisions for himself as well as for others. Parishes do not have the responsibility to verify who is and who is not vaccinated.
Each parish is to provide a portion of the church – with a size to be determined by the pastor – where social distancing and face-coverings are consistently maintained. This section is for anyone, vaccinated or unvaccinated.
All unvaccinated Catholics are encouraged to consult with their doctor about the vaccines. Resources to assist Catholics in understanding the moral use of COVID vaccines can be found at aod.org/vaccines.
The Sign of Peace may resume with the normal wording, “Offerte vobis pacem / Let us offer each other the sign of peace,” allowing parishioners and families to make their own determinations about how widely to share some sign of peace.
