8 December 2013 Second Sunday of Advent / year A pg. 881 Father John Edosomwam

Today we celebrate the Baptism of baby Amber Nwosu. This is the first Baptism for our English Mass. Congratulations to her parents Monia & Clover Nwosu.

Next Sunday Confessions / Reconciliation will be available from 12:00 – 12:45 before Mass. This is the only time this Advent season for this sacrament, so please consider attending.

Last weekend we enjoyed our social gathering after Mass. A good time was had by all, and we bid farewell to the Chahine Family as they return to Tampa, Florida, USA.

Since so many community members are traveling this winter break, we will not have English Mass services on Dec. 29, and January 5th. Our first Mass in the new year will be on January 12, 2014.

Volunteers are needed to keep this Mass running smoothly. We are in need for the following...

  • Communications email and organizing the weekend schedule. Most of this work is done from

    your computer.

  • Eucharistic Ministers – on Sundays help share the gifts of Bread or Wine with the congregation.

  • Lectors – on Sundays read the 1st, 2nd and/ or the Prayers of the Faithful.

  • Altar servers – on Sunday help with the service during Mass.

  • Transportation – Every other Sunday – pick up the visiting Priest from the Heidelberg Train

    station and bring the Father to Mass. Then after Mass give Father a ride back to the train

    station in Heidelberg.
    Please consider giving of your time to help keep our Mass running smoothly. Usually the service is not needed every weekend, but we must have some more volunteers. There is a signup sheet on the table in the back of the church, or please send an email to sign up.
