Fourth Sunday of Advent

News and Notes:

The Christmas Mass Schedule is as follows:
4PM Christmas Eve: OLA Church and OLA School Cafeteria
                                SMG Church and Church Hall
9AM Christmas Day: OLA Church
10AM Christmas Day: SMG Church
11AM Christmas Day: OLA Church

The one and only collection at all the Masses on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day will be taken up to support the Clergy Health and Retirement Trust Fund, which provides for the medical and retirement needs of the priests of the Archdiocese of Boston, among whom are Fr. Farrell, Fr. Tony and myself.  Thank you so much for your generous response to this much-needed collection.  If you wish to give a monetary Christmas gift to your respective parish, please mark that intention clearly on an envelope or in the memo line of your check.

Please note: There is no 7AM Mass at OLA on Christmas Day. Wednesday, January 1 is the Solemnity of Mary, the Holy Mother of God, a Holyday of Obligation.  The Mass Schedule that day will be as follows:
4PM on Tuesday, December 31 at both churches
9AM on Wednesday, January 1 at OLA
10AM on Wednesday, January 1 at SMG

Blessings to you in these last few days of Advent…and a joyful, peaceful Christmas to one and all!
