WEEKLY READING

FIRST SUNDAY OF ADVENT

Jesus said to his disciples:
“Be watchful! Be alert!
You do not know when the time will come.
It is like a man traveling abroad.
He leaves home and places his servants in charge,
each with his own work,
and orders the gatekeeper to be on the watch.
Watch, therefore;
you do not know when the Lord of the house is coming,
whether in the evening, or at midnight,
or at cockcrow, or in the morning.
May he not come suddenly and find you sleeping.
What I say to you, I say to all: ‘Watch!’” (Mk 13:33-37)

Happy Thanksgiving

Thankful

Some days we forget to look around us,
some days we can’t see the joy that surrounds us.
So caught up inside ourselves, we take what we should give.
So for tonight we pray for what we know can be,
and on this day we hope for what we still can’t see.
It’s up to us to be the change
and even though we all can still do more...
there’s so much to be thankful for!
Look beyond ourselves, there’s so much sorrow,
it’s way too late to say “I’ll cry tomorrow.”
Each of us much find our truth;
it’s so long overdue!
And so for tonight we pray for what we know can be,
and every day we hope for what we still can’t see.
It’s up to us to be the change
and even though we all can still do more
there’s so much to be thankful for!
Even with our differences, there is a place we’re all connected.
Each of us can find each other’s light!
So for tonight we pray for what we know can be,
and on this day we hope for what we still can’t see.
It’s up to us to be the change
and even though this world needs so much more...
there’s so much to be thankful for!

 

PARISH ADVENT RETREAT PRAYER
God, Our Father, we offer you praise and thanksgiving for all the many gifts you have given us through Jesus, Your Son. We thank you especially for the Gift of our parish Advent Retreat.

Loving and gracious God, quiet our minds and hearts, that we may be open to the gift of your truth. Grant that our Advent Retreat may be:

A time of Grace for all,
A time of growth for the young,
A time of refreshment for the old,
A time of renewal for families,
A time of healing for the broken,
A time of joy for the sorrowing,
A time of challenge for the complacent,
A time of forgiveness for the sinner,
A time of strength for the holy,
A time of homecoming for those who have been away.

Grant, most loving God that our Advent Retreat may bring down your richest blessings on each and every member of our parish community.

We pray through the intercession of Mary, Our Mother of Perpetual Help, in the name of Jesus who lives with you and the Holy Spirit forever. Amen.

The Synod of Bishops is a permanent institution of the Catholic Church. It was established by Pope Paul VI in 1965, shortly after the close of the Second Vatican Council, to continue the spirit of collegiality and communion that was present at the Council.

FROM THE PASTORS DESK

Dear Parishioner,
As we approach the first anniversary of Christ the Redeemer Parish, I am very pleased report that the past months were very inspiring and fruitful. It was wonderful to see the joint effort to build a true Catholic community bound to God and each other.

In order to deepen your personal relationship with Jesus, I invite you to take advantage of our annual Advent Retreat in English. It will begin on Saturday, November 30 and continue through Wednesday, December 3, 2014 and will be conducted by Rev. Kevin MacDonald, C.Ss.R.

Make our Advent Retreat a Family Retreat – bring your spouse and children. It will be a turning point in your life and will help you fully rejoice in the birth of our Lord if you open your heart to God’s grace. Come and welcome Christ the Redeemer into your life. Do not hesitate to invite others to experience the warmth of our faith community. The Retreat schedule listed below can also be found in parish bulletin and on the parish website.

For Polish-speaking parishioners, the Advent Retreat in Polish will take place beginning December 14th until December 17th. Rev. Piotr Kozlak, C.Ss.R. will shepherd us toward Christmas. Details will be printed in the bulletin.

Please say the Parish Advent Retreat Prayer daily in support of this Retreat. Pray with me that all of us will be open to receiving God’s grace through the reception of sacraments and plan now to be a part of this spiritual exercise. Build your personal relationship with God and people through faith, love, mercy and forgiveness.

Sincerely in Christ the Redeemer,
