St. Nicholas Day Activity - Dec 5

Every year Catholics around the globe remember, honor, and pray to Saint Nicholas, the 4th-Century Bishop of Myra. During his Earthly life he showed great compassion and generosity to those who were young and poor. Since the Middle Ages he has been acknowledged as the patron saint of children. Today pilgrims venerate his relics at the basilica in Bari, Italy. 

On this Sunday, December 5th, please bring your children down to the parish hall after the 10:30 mass and/or after the 12:30 Mass to speak with the saint, receive a little treat, and take home a special St. Nicholas prayer card. (Photos are available upon request.)


BLESSING OF EXPECTANT MOTHERS
Will be next weekend, December 6/7 during Sat. 5.00PM, Sunday 8.30 & 10.30AM Masses.

Text Box: Sunday Scripture

	Jesus fulfilled the promises God made to Israel. Today's readings remind us that through Christ God fulfilled the promise he made to his people to bring them salvation. This came about through Christ's death and Resurrection, opening the way to eternal life for all who believed, both Jew and Gentile. In gratitude for this great gift, let us serve Christ with undivided hearts.
	Isaiah tells that from the line of David God will raise up a mighty savior to bring peace and salvation to the world. In the second reading, Paul declares that this salvation is now open to the Gentiles. The Gospel tells of John the Baptist heralding Christ's coming and calling for true repentance, for the Kingdom of heaven was at hand.
