Today 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.

This is also the beginning of a new Church Year and the Cycle C readings.

Much like we have done in the past, we will be providing the fixings for a Christmas meal as well as gifts for all of the children but we will need your help. We are in need of monetary donations, shoppers(we provide the money for you to shop!), gift wrappers, deliverers(we will be delivering the morning of December 18th).
