Our parish sincerely wants to serve you with all the resources that our faith supplies. Take a moment, even right now, to tell God what you are looking for here. It is amazing that a simple search to find out what time Mass is can hide a deeper desire to worship God, or to return to God, or to become a Christian disciple.
A website is impersonal, but our God is very personal, and God is always looking for us, for any hint that we might be in need, or desiring to do something great for Him. My guess is that God is the one who you are really seeking, and He said that all who seek will find.

The Advent Calendar
The Advent calendar, or Adventhaus, began in Scandanavia and Germany. Its purpose is to help children become aware of the expectancy of Advent. Sometimes the Advent calendar is a picture of a house with 23 small windows and 1 large window that are opened to reveal the tiny religious symbols, icons and pictures behind them. Another variation is to construct a Jacob's Ladder that leads step by step to the day of Christ's birth. Every morning or every evening before bedtime, the child opens a window, behind which appears a star, an angel, a manger or some other picture appropriate to the Advent season. (If there are several children in the family, the privilege of opening the windows rotates from one to another). An appropriate bible verse can serve as a caption to the picture. On the 23rd, all twenty-three small windows are open; the big window remains closed until Christmas Eve, when it is opened to reveal the Holy Child in the manger. When all the windows are opened, stand the calendar in front of a lamp or window. The light will shine through the paper, giving the little house a Christmas glow.READ MORE
