THIRD SUNDAY OF ADVENT

Lk 3:10-18
And the crowds asked John the Baptist,
“What then should we do?”
He said to them in reply,
“Whoever has two tunics should share with the person who has none.
And whoever has food should do likewise.”
Even tax collectors came to be baptized and they said to him,
“Teacher, what should we do?”
He answered them, “Stop collecting more than what is prescribed.”
Soldiers also asked him, “And what is it that we should do?”
He told them, “Do not practice extortion,
do not falsely accuse anyone,
and be satisfied with your wages.”
Now the people were filled with expectation,
and all were asking in their hearts whether John might be the Messiah.
John answered them all, saying,
“I am baptizing you with water,
but one mightier than I is coming.
I am not worthy to loosen the thongs of his sandals.
He will baptize you with the holy Spirit and fire.
His winnowing fan is in his hand to clear his threshing floor
and to gather the wheat into his barn,
but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire.”
Exhorting them in many other ways, he preached good news to the people.

3. Someone is using Fr. Stan’s name pretending that he needs your help and asking for money using a fake Gmail account that looks like it’s from him. So please do not give any money. If you did so please contact your credit card company. He does not use a Gmail account for his correspondence. Please be careful…

There is an error on the flyer in this week’s bulletin regarding the volunteer dinner. You DO NOT need tickets to attend.

On December 15th at 12 Noon, for the first time, our cemetery will take part in Wreaths Across America, placing wreaths on the graves of veterans. Mayor Onderko has invited everyone to attend this ceremony.

FROM THE PASTOR'S DESK

Dear Friends,

As part of our daily living, we each take the time to plan our work day and leisure time, yet we don’t make the time to plan our spiritual lives. Isn’t that just as important? Faith and spiritual growth require the same attention; it does not happen automatically. Without intentional planning and preparation for our spiritual life, we risk the possibility of going year after year without realizing our spiritual potential and deepening our relationship with our God who loves us more than we can imagine.

Advent is not just an “early Christmas”. Advent is a season all to itself. Take advantage of Advent symbols, especially the Advent wreath as part of your family’s daily prayer. Did you know that placing candles in the windows of your home are not Christmas decorations? They are Advent decorations. A candle in the window is an ancient sign of hospitality. The early Christians developed the practice to welcome Christ into their homes.

In order to deepen your personal relationship with Jesus, I invite you to take advantage of our annual English and Polish Advent Retreats. Take this time to build your personal relationship with Him through faith, love, mercy and forgiveness.

On Monday December 10th at 6:00PM we will have our Ministry and Volunteer Dinner at Christ the King School to honor their commitment to and support of Christ the Redeemer. Everyone is invited but must call or email the parish office to R.S.V.P. We will also officially present our 100th Anniversary Logo and share the detailed program of all the celebrations throughout our anniversary year. I’m especially grateful to the 100th Anniversary Committee for their extraordinary dedication and work so that we may experience the rich opportunities of this time of grace. See you there!

Now, as our parish nears the 100th Anniversary of Roman Catholic Parish life in Manville, I pray that all the members of our Parish will join in our upcoming celebrations with hearts open to renewal and growth in the Lord through His Church. As in previous years, our parishioners from Interworks, Graphic and Development Studio prepared the 2019 Parish Calendar and it will soon be available to all parishioners. The new calendar highlights our anniversary program throughout 2019. I’m certain that you will find it very useful and informative and that the new design meets your needs.

With all of this in mind, and with hearts full of gratitude for everything God is doing in our Parish, let us enter together into this jubilee year, the year of grace. Let us pray for all that is good and worthy for our future and let us rejoice in what we have received from the generations of the past!

Have a great Advent!

Sincerely yours,

Fr.Stan
