Upcoming Christmas Schedule

Dear Parishioners and Friends of Saint Mary’s,

I am sending this letter early this week so that I can offer you a special Greeting for our Thanksgiving Holiday. On behalf of all Ministerial, Pastoral and Support Staff I wish you and your loved ones a day of peace and thanksgiving in these most turbulent of times.

Just a very important reminder: to gain access to our live-stream Masses and Services: always go to our website and then click on Livestream Masses – this is for a Mass in real time or to view a past Mass that is recorded. It appears that our YouTube connection for Masses has trouble with the electronic widgets at the moment and does not work for us.

Pastoral Reflection

An active preparation time

11-29-2020Fr. Brian

Have you noticed how other people, maybe even you, are constantly late and keep people waiting? Have you noticed other people, maybe even you, who are on time or ready even a little early? People who are constantly late are either unintentionally or intentionally expressing that other people and their time do not matter. “You can simply wait for me as if you and your time are not of value” is often the un-thought thought. We called these folks “thoughtless or obtuse.” We all are late at some point and may have a valid excuse such as sudden responsibilities, un-planned traffic due to an accident, children, “others,” or whatever as an excuse. Some people always seem to take advantage of a real or vague excuse and are always late. Some folks excuse themselves by saying “Well, I am always late.” They do not understand that being chronically late is a serious flaw because, in fact, it expresses their lack of valuing others. We have now begun the season of Advent. We know this is called the Season of Waiting. This waiting, however, is different.



Noon Mass added starting the First Week of Advent

Starting with the First Sunday in Advent, November 29 aka the Sunday after Thanksgiving,, we will begin celebrating a 12:00pm Mass each Sunday. Our attendance at weekend Masses continues to increase slowly. The trending numbers of attendance suggest that we should begin the Noon Mass at that point in time.

We are holding our Sixth Annual Holiday Food Card Drive Nov 7 - Dec 14. Proceeds will support the ongoing charitable efforts of the Knights of Columbus and help feed those “in need”.
