Hurricane Relief: This past week we sent a check for $6,000.00 to the Diocese for Catholic Charities, U.S.A. to help those suffering from the recent “superstorm” along the Atlantic coast. Thank you to all who donated to this cause.


Advent Reading Material:  Advent spiritual reading material is on a table in the Gathering Space.  There is no charge, but the supply of pamphlets is limited. 


Penance Service Schedule:

Mon., Dec. 10 - 7:00pm - St. John, Bellefonte

Parish Penance Service: Our annual Parish Penance Service will be next Sunday, Dec. 16th at 2:30pm. At least ten visiting priests will join our parish priests for the celebration of the           Sacrament of Reconciliation. We invite you to seriously consider taking advantage of this       opportunity.


No Confessions This Thursday Eve: Because all the priests from OLV are going to Good Shepherd to help out at their Penance Service, there will be no confessions here this Thursday, Dec. 13th. Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament will be held as usual.


Change to Christmas Confessions Schedule: We have had to make a slight change in the times for Christmas confessions since we mailed out the Christmas party letter a few weeks ago. Please note the new schedule

Wednesday & Thursday, Dec. 19 & 20  -  7:30am, 9:30am & 7:00pm

Friday, Dec. 21 -    7:30am, 10:00am & 7:00pm
