SUNDAY INSPIRATION
All are welcome to 'be inspired' in the lower level on December 4th from 11:15-11:25. The last thing Joshua Waltz ever thought he would be was a Catholic priest. But a series of choices- some bad and some good- ultimately led him to enter the seminary. In this Sunday Inspiration session, we will learn his incredible vocation story that involves heartbreak, robbers, Europe, and several miracles- all showing that there is nothing more exciting than a life lived for Jesus Christ.
ADVENT GREETINGS: Some suggestions to “walk in the light” this Advent: 
  • Go to daily Mass one time per week (this alone would be a very fruitful sacrifice) 
  • Read through the daily Mass readings (see www.usccb.org for readings) 
  • Light a wreath and pray an extra Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be around it each day 
  • Shovel snow, give a ride, get groceries for the elderly, write a card for the lonely, etc. 
  • Make a good confession 
  • Make visitations to the sick or shut-ins
