Eucharistic Adoration: Eucharistic Adoration
will resume on the following Thursday, December 3, from
3pm-5pm. During Eucharistic Adoration, I hear confessions from
about 3:15pm-3:45pm. By the way, an excellent help in your
preparation for Christmas is to make a good confession and spend
some time in Eucharistic Adoration.
Calendars are in the back of church this weekend.
Please take one per family. Thank you to the St. Lawrence
Knights of Columbus whose generous donation made it possible for
us to have the calendars again this year. Thank you, St.
Lawrence Knights of Columbus.
Julia’s Thanksgiving/Christmas holiday collection of
food and monetary donations for families in need is underway. I
know that our St. Lawrence parishioners and friends will be
generous so that Sister will be able to assist all those
families who are in need. This collection will continue through
December. Sister’s Ministry envelopes are in the back of church
and the food barrels are at the break (next to the pillars) for
your food donations. Thank you for helping Sister help the
needy. And thanks to Sister Helen Julia.
