Second Sunday of Advent



PASTOR'S PIECE 



Dear Friends,

 


THE SACRAMENT OF PENANCE


Advent is a good time to go to confession.  At St. Peter’s we have confessions every Thursday evening during Holy Hour (7:30pm-8:30pm) and each Saturday afternoon, 3:45 pm-4:45 pm.


DIOCESAN CATHOLIC CHARITIES COLLECTION TODAY


Please be generous in the second collection today for Catholic Charities.  The Diocese does a lot of good through their many different programs of counseling, food, immigrant services, housing, and emergency help for people in need.  If you are not ready today to donate you can do so on line on their website: www.ccda.net.


A NEW FORMAT FOR OUR BULLETIN


Hope you like our new bulletin published by John Patrick Publishing Company.  In the back of the bulletin you will have an opportunity to advertise your business. Please support the businesses that advertise on the back of our parish bulletin.  It is their ad revenue that makes our weekly bulletin free to the parish.  Our publisher, John Patrick Publishing Company, is recruiting new advertisers at this time.  Call or email their office at 800-333-3166, or www.jppc.net, if you would like more information! 


BIG BANG OR CREATION . . . OR BOTH?


Come join our discussion: Big Bang or Creation…or Both?  Talk given by Steve Snyder, Professor of Philosophy at Christendom College, next week, December 17, after the 8:30 a.m. Mass.  Yummy treats and Father’s coffee will be provided!
