News from Fr. Vyverman
Advent is here! On this Sunday after Thanksgiving, we begin both a new Church year and our period of waiting for the birth of the Lord.
Because this time before Christmas is so packed with events, the days before Christmas just seem to melt away. Don’t let the season of Advent slip away! Take some time to slow down and prepare yourself spiritually for what is to come.
Please mark your calendars for an Advent Penance service on December 9th at 7 p.m. I will have several priests here to assist me at St. Charles with confessions.
Just a reminder that we will be beginning our new Winter Mass time for Saturday afternoons next weekend, December 6th! Confessions will be at 2:30 p.m. and the Vigil Mass will begin at 4 p.m. (instead of 5 p.m.). We will switch back to a summer schedule after Easter.
A special thank you to everyone who helped out with the winter coat and blanket drive. It was just amazing how many items were collected and distributed to those in need.
Thanks for reading!
