We invite you to help! The program provides gifts for younger children, gift certificates for teenagers, and a holiday food basket for the family. Caring and Sharing anticipates serving over 80 families this year. We will be collecting items for food baskets and gift cards. Canned chicken broth, cranberry sauce, vegetables and sweet potatoes are especially needed. We would also like to contribute frozen holiday pies. Volunteers needed to help with sorting and wrapping gift items. For more information or if you know of a family in need of assistance, please contact Michele in the parish office.
LIFE Is Back!
All are invited for dinner on Sun. Dec. 6 at 4:45 or Wed. Dec. 9, at 5:45.
We will launch the “Year of Mercy” with stories of God’s unfailing mercy. We’ll learn how to be wide receivers of mercy & about the power of mercy to effect change.
During their breakout, the children will participate in a work of mercy by assembling the “Blessing Bags” to be given to the people who come to the parish office looking for assistance and the kindness of Christ.
Child care for children ages one, two, & three will be provided after dinner. Reserve your place at LIFEhere.

Terrorism in Paris: After time to reflect and pray on the terrorist attacks in Paris, I want to offer a few reflections. First, good long term decisions and strategies are not formed out of anger and fear. Jesus constantly urges us to “Be not afraid.” Jesus said these words recognizing the opposition he faced and the cross that lay ahead. These words were written down during times of persecution. So fear should not control our actions, especially as we respond to the refugee crisis.
