"With One Voice" Capital Campaign

For a number of years, we have considered the possibility of installing a full capacity elevator for those with mobility issues. We plan to install a fully accessible elevator that will allow parishioners to go from the lower level to the upper level of the church. Additionally, we will create accessible restrooms both on the Church and ground level. This will allow greater access for all of our community.

Weekly Reflection

Tend to What Is at Hand

12-16-2018Fr. Brian F. Manning

For many centuries we have called the Third Sunday in Advent “Gaudete (“rejoice”) Sunday.” We change the color of our vestments at Mass from the somber Advent purple to a deep and vibrant rose. Note that this week’s Advent wreath candle is also rose or pink. Our readings for this Sunday reflect this bright color in purpose and meaning. In fact, the whole speed and rhythm of Advent picks up today. As Christmas gets closer and closer, the more restrained mood of Advent’s early days is abandoned. The famous “O Antiphons” are sung and proclaimed beginning this week. You can feel Christmas in the air. We can feel or intuit that something very big is about to happen. And this weekend the liturgy is urging us to employ this sense to recognize that Emmanuel, God-with-us, really is with us now.
