We will again be collecting Christmas gifts for neighbors/parishioners in need. Please take one or more tags off the Angel Tree that will be located in the Gathering Space. The tree will be in the Gathering Space beginning on Saturday, November 26th. Purchase the gift that is listed and return the gift wrapped and tagged with the angel by Sunday, December 18th (before 12 Noon). As the gifts are returned to the Gathering Space, the Advent Angel Tree volunteers will collect the gifts and place an ornament on the tree to represent the gift that is donated. By Christmas Day,
the tree will be decorated with hundreds of ornaments. Thank you in advance for your generosity and helping those children less fortunate.

The Bible and the Virgin Mary is a dynamic twelve-part video series that beautifully explains the Catholic truths about Our Lady showing how she has been a part of God’s plan to bring salvation to the world since the beginning of time. In addition to explanation of dogmas, answers to common objections, and demonstration of Mary’s presence in the Old and New Testaments, this study discusses Church-approved Marian apparitions that play an important role in Catholic Tradition. It’s sure to help Catholics and non-Catholics alike grow in an understanding and appreciation of the Mother of God.
