In a few weeks the Holy Year which Pope Francis proclaimed will begin. I hope that we all will consider ourselves personally invited to enter deeply into the gift of God's mercy during this time. I will highlight a portion of the Pope's writings during the Holy Year which will begin on December 8th. The parish pastoral council and staff have been discussing ways in which we can participate in this holy year.
This Friday evening, come and enjoy a tasty spaghetti meal which we host every year to support our Franciscan Outreach program. It will run from 5 to 7 pm. The Outreach program has an open house this weekend; take a few minutes after mass to visit the place where so many hungry people are helped twice a week. (Note: we have to postpone the meal. Check back for the new date!)
Just a reminder that next weekend we will incorporate the sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick into the 4:30 pm and 10:00 am masses.
