PASTOR'S CORNER

Fr. Mark T. Watkins
Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception:  Thursday, December 8, is the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception.  It IS a holyday of Obligation and is the Patronal Feast Day of the United States.  The obligation may be fulfilled by participating in Mass on Wednesday, December 7 at 3:00pm or Thursday, December 8, at 8:30am, 11:00am or 7:00pm.   

Eucharistic Adoration:  An excellent way to prepare for Christmas is to make a good confession and spend some time in Eucharistic Adoration.  Eucharistic Adoration is on Thursdays, from 3pm-5pm.  During Eucharistic Adoration, I hear confessions from about 3:15pm-3:45pm.              

2017 Calendars are in back of church.                         

Christmas Masses:  Please make sure you see the Christmas and New Year’s Mass schedule on the enclosed insert in the Laurentian.
