Sunday December 2, 2018 is the First Sunday of Advent, the beginning of a new Liturgical Year. Our annual Parish Advent celebration will take place on the second floor of the school. We’ll collect winter items for our parish neighbors: hats, socks, gloves, hand & foot warmers, granola bars. Our Back Door Ministry needs coffee, creamer, sugar, and canned soups. Eggs and cheese can be brought directly to the rectory kitchen. Christmas card writing for shut-ins, take-home Advent materials, and snacks will be available. Please plan to participate and prepare your heart and hands for Christmas.
Join us on Sunday mornings in the Church at 10:15 AM as we prepare for Advent. We will read and reflect on the Advent scriptures and liturgical prayers for each Sunday in Advent. All are welcome! Questions? Call or text Carol Schiro at (216) 225-7130.

In today’s Gospel we hear the story of the Annunciation, when the angel of the Lord announced to Mary that she would give birth to Christ through the Holy Spirit. Mary allowed God’s messenger to speak to her. She was attentive, not afraid to enter into a dialogue, then unconditionally obedient. Mary’s acceptance of this mystery is a stewardship model for us. Good stewards remain open to the incursions of divine life into the normal course of their daily lives.
How open are we to the promptings of the Holy Spirit in our own lives? What might we do this last day of Advent to be more attentive to the Lord?
