MASS SCHEDULE FOR NEW YEAR’S

New Year’s Eve - December 31

4 p.m. (English) / 7 p.m. (Spanish)

Feast of Mary, the Mother of God - January 1st.

8:30 a.m. (English) / 11 a.m. (Spanish)

With all the materialism, consumerism, atheism, and increasing

hostility to Christmas, Fr. Ed Broom suggests some lessons

to remember to help us get ready for this great feast.

     1. Jesus’ name means “Savior” because He was sent by the

Father to save all humanity from their sins.

     2. Humility is an essential part of being a Christian as we imitate

both Jesus and His mother Mary.

     3. Just as Jesus was detached from material things — He was

born in a stable — so, too, we must keep material things in perspective,

for where our treasure is, there will our hearts be.

     4. Even as the innkeeper had to clean the stable where Jesus

was born, so we must clean our spiritual stables of all sin by going

to Confession before Christmas.

     5. The word “Bethlehem” means “house of bread.” How significant

that Jesus, who is the “Bread of Life,” would choose to be

born in a town with Eucharistic connotations.

     6. The Magi expended a great deal of time and effort to follow

the star that led them to Jesus. We must also follow the star of

Catholicism by being open to what the Church teaches us and

pointing others toward Jesus.

     7. The angels proclaimed, “Glory to God in the highest and on

earth peace to men of good will.” Advent and Christmas are a

time to remove from our hearts any resentment, bitterness, anger,

envy, and jealousy toward others so that peace, both interior

and exterior, will radiate out from us.

    8. Jesus is our principal role model, but let’s not forget to imitate

the wonderful and inspiring example of Mary and Joseph,

who made Jesus the center of their lives, just as we must make

Him the center of our lives.

Beware of Those Seeking Money Outside

Church — We have noticed people outside the Church

after Mass asking for money. Please do not give them

anything. We have resources here at the Parish to help

those who are truly in need, and those seeking assistance

must contact the Parish Office. We have no way of knowing

if people soliciting funds after the weekend Masses

have a genuine need, so please do not give them anything.

Tell them to call the Parish Office.

Pilgrimage to Poland Planned

Fr. Paco will direct a Pilgrimage to Poland from May 20-28, 2019. The nine-day trip, which will follow in the footsteps of Saint Faustina and Divine Mercy, Saint Maximilian Kolbe and his desire to gain the whole world to God through the Militia Immaculata or total consecration to our Blessed Mother, and Saint John Paul II, who consecrated his whole pontificate to Mary and gave us the Feast of Divine Mercy. The trip will cost $3,599 per person from Boston. A deposit of $400 will secure a spot. For the full itinerary, go to www.pilgrimages.com/angelconnection and reserve your place on this exciting pilgrimage.

Children’s Choir

Children’s Choir — Our Children’s Choir will sing at the 8:30 a.m. Mass today, October 14th, as well as on November 11th, and December 9th. Rehearsals for those in grades 1-8 will continue on Sundays from 10:45 to 11:15 a.m. in the St. Paul Room of the School, except for the days when the choir will be singing. We need more good singers, so we invite you to join the choir if you are in grades 1-8.
