December 2, 9 & 16, 2015
This weekend marks the final Sunday of the Church’s liturgical year. Next Sunday is the Church New Year. As is fitting, we begin that New Year with a time of preparation and joyous expectation. The season of Advent draws our minds to the Birth of the Christ Child in a paltry manger in a cold, dark stable. The Advent season is divided into two parts as illustrated by the Sacred Scripture; the first two Sundays focus on the Second Coming of Christ and the latter two focuses on the first coming of Christ. Holy Mother Church begs her faithful to pause during this season and to take stock of each person’s life and to shed the undue burden of sin and begin the New Year of the Church with renewed heart and mind. Much as in secular New Year celebration we pledge to do certain things to better our secular lives, so too should we pledge to do things to better our spiritual lives. One of the most fruitful ways to begin anew is to avail oneself of the Sacrament of Penance. Beginning the first Wednesday of Advent, December 2, 2015 at 6:30 pm and continuing consecutively for three (3) Wednesdays of Advent, St. Peter’s will be offering the Sacrament of Penance as part of the Light is On For You. These additional confession times are for the benefit of those who may not be able to make regularly scheduled times. This is in addition to our regularly scheduled times.
