We are excited by the work of our parishioners Mary and Kevin Bode!
Third Week of Advent
Advent invites us to rejoice. At the same time it exhorts us to wait with patience for the coming of the Lord now approaching. It exhorts us not to be discouraged, to resist every kind of adversity, with the certainty that the Lord, who is near, will strengthen our faith. Let us, therefore, wait for the Lord in joyful hope, trusting in His promise of salvation.
