Remember the Poor
Please remember the poor today as you leave church by perhaps giving alms and placing a donation in one of our poor boxes. Everything collected is given to the Saint Vincent de Paul Society, which assists those in need of food or clothing.
Mass Intentions Available
We still have Mass Intentions available for both weekday AND weekend celebrations of Eucharist. Please consider having a Mass celebrated for a loved one or family member—either living or deceased.
We are ALL in need of prayers, and there is no greater prayer than the celebration of Eucharist. Each Mass Intention is only $15.00. If you are interested in having a Mass celebrated in memory of a deceased loved one, or in honor of someone who is living, please call Emily at the Rectory and she will be more than happy to assist you.
Brownbaggers Homeless Outreach
The Brownbaggers project serves the poor in NYC during the winter months. Since 2009 we have delivered thousands of lunches. Meeting monthly in the Parish Hall at 12:30pm, we assemble 100 brown bag lunches with food and clothing items donated by our volunteers. We then travel via subway to multiple Manhattan parks to distribute our lunches to those most in need, returning to Brooklyn by 3:30 pm. Dave Beaudry is the current director of our Brownbaggers Homeless Outreach Program.
Volunteers can reach Dave at:email@example.com

AN ADVENT MORNING OF
PRAYER & REFLECTION
December 10th at 10 am
All the members of our parish family are welcome to join us on Saturday morning, December 10, for an Advent morning of Prayer and Reflection. Our day will begin with the celebration of Mass at 10:00 a.m. followed by a talk by Sr. Mary Alice Piil, CSJ, on the importance and necessity of the Eucharist in our daily lives—particularly during this season of Advent and throughout this year of Eucharist Revival.
Christmas is the time of year when we begin to turn our thoughts to those who are less fortunate than ourselves. Beginning the first week of December the Giving Tree will be decorated with “gift tag ornaments” that are marked with gender, age and gift suggestions. This year the gifts are being collected for Providence House.
The unwrapped gifts with the tags taped to them should be placed under the Giving Tree no later than Sunday, December 11th.
God Bless you & Merry Christmas!
