Letter to the Parish from Fr. Hennigen — September 17, 2022

The glance of the weekend from Father Hennigen from the Sunday Bulletin from this past weekend:

–This weekend is the First Sunday of Advent, at the Masses we will bless the advent wreath and light the first candle on the wreath. We will light the candles on the wreath as we draw closer to Christmas as celebrate the Light of the World, Jesus coming into the world.
–December 2nd is First Friday with 9:00am Mass, 8:00pm confessions and adoration, 9:00pm Candlelight Mass.
–December 3rd is First Saturday with 9:00am Mass, confession until 10:00am, 10:00 to 11:00am Service –Saturday, and 11:00am Knights of Columbus meeting.

Here is a prayer as you light your advent wreaths at home.

Our help is in the name of the Lord. Who made the heaven and earth.

Listen to the words of the prophet Isaiah:

The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; Upon those who dwelt in the land of gloom a light has shone. You have brought them abundant joy and great rejoicing, As they rejoice before you as at the harvest, as men make merry when dividing spoils. For a child is born to us, a son is given up; upon his shoulder dominion rests. They name him Wonder-Counselor, God-Hero, Father-Forever, Prince of Peace. His dominion is vast and forever peaceful, From David’s throne, and over his kingdom, which he confirms and sustains By judgment and justice, both now and forever.

Lord God, Your Church joyfully awaits the coming of its Savior, who enlightens our hearts and dispels the darkness of ignorance and sin. Pour forth your blessings upon us as we light the candle of this wreath;
may their light reflect the splendor of Christ, who is Lord, for ever and ever. Amen.

Starting Advent 2022 (Liturgical Year A), we will begin reading the Gospel of Matthew at our Sunday Masses until the Feast of Christ the King in November 2023. Matthew: The King and His Kingdom shows how Jesus fulfills God’s promises to Israel and establishes his kingdom on earth. Through references to the Old Testament promises of God to his people and the messages God sent them through the prophets, Matthew provides the key to understanding the rest of the New Testament and Christ as the fulfillment of God’s plan.

Join us for Matthew: The King and His Kingdom, a 24-week DVD Bible Study featuring Jeff Cavins from Ascension Press. Sessions are split into three segments – 8 weeks in Fall/Advent 2022, 8 weeks in Winter/Lent 2023 and 8 weeks in Fall/Advent 2023. For one year, the DVD sessions will be available on-line through Ascension Press.
