November 13, 2017

My dear parishioners,

This weekend we are celebrating the Feast of Christ the King. The Feast of Christ the King ends the Liturgical Year. The Church changes from Cycle A (reading St. Matthew’s Gospel) to Cycle B (reading St. Mark’s Gospel).

Next weekend we celebrate the First Sunday of Advent. We begin not only the first Sunday of a new liturgical year but we begin our immediate preparation for Jesus Christ coming among us as Man. (Christmas)

Advent is filled with songs, smells, sights, anticipation, and joy. Our parish and some of you in your own homes, use the symbol of the Advent wreath, a wreath made of evergreens and four candles. The Advent season is full of all types of lights. We wait in expectant hope for Christ our Light to be born.

 Starting this weekend please pick up two aids to help you celebrate Advent. Once again this Advent the parish purchased the Magnificat Advent Companion. It contains a simple devotion you can use each day during Advent. Each day you will be directed to a different Gospel reading, a meaningful meditation and a short prayer.

Also the parish is handing out the 2018 Religious Art Calendar. I want to thank Robert and Mark Russell,  who own Monahan, Drabble, and Sherman Funeral Home, for their kind donation of these calendars.

Have a good week,

–Monsignor Montecalvo
