Come, long-expected Jesus. Excite in me a hunger for peace: peace in the world, peace in my home, peace in myself. Amen.
PARISH PENANCE SERVICE
Celebrating the sacrament of God’s forgiveness is a good way to
prepare for Christmas and the New Year. Our parish penance
service will be held on Tuesday, December 10th at 7:00 PM.
Several priests will be available for confession.
OF THE GOSPEL
"The joy of the gospel" ~Pope Francis "Whenever our interior life becomes caught up in its own interests and concerns, there is no longer room for others. God’s voice is no longer heard, the quiet joy of his love is no longer felt, and the desire to do good fades". ~Pope Francis

DID YOU KNOW?
Re-discover the fullness of your Catholic Faith
I grew up Catholic, but for some reason I just sort of stopped
going to Church…
I just moved to a new city, I tried going to a couple different parishes, but I never really felt welcomed...
After my marriage ended, I felt uncomfortable around my family, friends and parish…
I just don't understand why the Church teaches what it does! Some teachings seem so outdated…

What We Believe
"Our profession of faith begins with God, for God is the First and the Last, the beginning and the end of everything. The Credo begins with God the Father, for the Father is the first divine person of the Most Holy Trinity; our Creed begins with the creation of heaven and earth, for creation is the beginning and the foundation of all God's works."
---the Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 198
Catholic belief is succinctly expressed in the profession of faith or credo called the Nicene Creed:
The Nicene Creed
I believe in one God,
the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all things visible and invisible.
I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the Only Begotten Son of God,
born of the Father before all ages.
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father;
through him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation
he came down from heaven,
and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary,
and became man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate,
he suffered death and was buried,
and rose again on the third day
in accordance with the Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory
to judge the living and the dead
and his kingdom will have no end.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified,
who has spoken through the prophets.
I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church.
I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins
and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead
and the life of the world to come. Amen.
What is Evangelization?
Evangelizing means bringing the Good News of Jesus into every human situation and seeking to convert individuals and society by the divine power of the Gospel itself.
The simplest way to say what evangelization means is to follow Pope Paul VI, whose message On Evangelization in the Modern World has inspired so much recent thought and activity in the Church. We can rephrase his words to say that evangelizing means bringing the Good News of Jesus into every human situation and seeking to convert individuals and society by the divine power of the Gospel itself. At its essence are the proclamation of salvation in Jesus Christ and the response of a person in faith, which are both works of the Spirit of God.
Evangelization must always be directly connected to the Lord Jesus Christ. "There is no true evangelization if the name, the teaching, the life, the promises, the Kingdom and the mystery of Jesus of Nazareth, the Son of God are not proclaimed." Excerpt from Go and Make Disciples: A National Plan and Strategy for Catholic Evangelization in the United States.
Let's pass along our faith, share this with a friend, maybe someone we know has questions...
