First Sunday of Advent

News and Notes:  This weekend we begin our Advent Almsgiving drive with special collections at the Sunday 9AM and 11AM Masses at OLA; and the 10AM Mass at SMG.  Once again, all funds collected at these Masses and through donations placed in the regular Offertory collection at all other Sunday liturgies during Advent will be sent to the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless to provide beds for homeless children in our area.  If you would like to make a contribution to this worthy cause, please make your check out to your respective parish with “Beds for Children” in the memo line. 

Saturday, December 8 is the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, our nation’s patronal feast and a Holyday of Obligation.  We will celebrate Masses as follows:

Friday, December 7: 4PM at OLA
Saturday, December 8: 9AM at OLA and 10AM SMG

A collection for the support of our parishes will be taken up at all these Holyday Masses. 

Advent blessings to all of you!
