Our Lady of the Road:  Thanks to all who may have found some wonderful bargains on underclothing to be given to the homeless who visit Our Lady of the Road.  Also, for the many cash donations that will be directed for the purpose of buying the basics for the needy coming in to the facility. 
       
Tis the season!  It has already begun when it comes to the needs of the poor, especially with the cold weather on its way.

Today [December 2] begins the season of Advent. At the heart of this season is a call to holiness, a call to look at what needs transforming in our lives and in our world.

May we enter this Holy Season learning God’s ways and walking in God’s paths with humility and an ardent love that will worthily prepare us for Christmas.
