The glance of the weekend from Father Hennigen from the Sunday Bulletin from this past weekend:
–It is the First Sunday of Advent. Advent means “coming” as we prepare to celebrate Christ’s first coming at Christmas and to prepare for His Second Coming when he will come again. As we move through the Advent Season as we will begin to put up the trees in the church since they take some time to put up. This year advent is shorter since the last Sunday of Advent is Christmas Eve. On December 24th we will have the 8:30 and 10:30 am Mass on Sunday morning to celebrate the 4th Sunday of Ad-vent before that evening we celebrate the 4:30pm, 10:00pm, and Midnight Masses on Christmas Eve and 9:00am Mass on Christmas Day.
–During the Advent Season, Deacon Eric and I going to do three nights of Faith Formation on Tuesday nights at 7:00pm at Bocks Bar on the corner. Gary Bockweg, who owns the bar, is a member of the parish and has offered us to use the big billiards room in the back. We are grateful to him for letting us use the space. The Foresters are going to sponsor the night with a first free drink and snacks. The topics are: Deacon Eric will speak on Church History on December 5th and on Mary on December 12th. I will speak on the Eucharist on December 19th. All are welcome.
–Sunday, December 3rd is Youth Group in the youth room, the Underground, from 9:30 to 10:20am. Grades 6th to 12th are invited.
–Friday, December 8th is the Solemnity of the Immac-ulate Conception, a Holy Day of obligation. The vigil Mass will be at 6:00pm on the 7th and on the 8th the Masses will be at 9:00am, Noon, and 6:00pm. This is our new schedule for our Holy Day Masses.
