FOURTH SUNDAY OF ADVENT AND CHRISTMAS EVE MASSES

This year, the Fourth Sunday of Advent falls on Dec. 24, which is also Christmas Eve. While this does not happen often, it reminds us of the need to plan ahead to participate in both of these holy days. While there is only one day this year in the Fourth Week of Advent, the day serves to prepare us to enter fully into the joyful celebration of Christmas. Keeping our observance of Advent allows us time to quiet ourselves before Christmas, to make us aware of Christ’s presence, and to recognize the full impact and joy of Christ’s birth.


YEAR END CHURCH CONTRIBUTIONS AND YOUR TAXES

Church donations received on Sunday, December 31 are deductible for 2017. Donations received on Monday, January 1, 2018 will not qualify as charitable deductions for 2017 even if the check was written in 2017 or back-dated to 2017, per IRS rulings. Donations post-marked in 2017 are deductible in 2017 even if they are received in 2018. Please call your parish office if you have questions about this ruling. As always, your parish support is very much appreciated!

STEWARDSHIP MESSAGE

Advent

Some of the obstacles that keep us from “making a straight path” for the Lord are the same obstacles that keep us from embracing stewardship as a way of life. John the Baptist calls us to reform our lives and let go of the selfishness and greed that keep us from following God’s will.


DID YOU KNOW?

The Green Bay Diocese through its Catholic Charities Office offers teen parent services when a pregnancy occurs. They provide help to frightened and confused, sometimes angry young adults in making decisions about their situation and the choice to be parents. It’s just one of the ways that your gifts to the Bishop’s Appeal help people in northeastern Wisconsin. Thank you for your support.


REPORTING SEXUAL ABUSE

If you know of an incident of sexual abuse of a person who is now under the age of 18 by a priest, deacon, employee or volunteer, please immediately call the civil authorities and then the diocese. If the person was abused as a minor but is now an adult, please call Jayne Stefanic, Diocesan Assistance Coordinator, at 920-272-8174, or toll free at 1-877-270-8184.

We always encourage you to report the incident to civil authorities.

The Our Father

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen

Hail Mary

Hail, Mary! Full of grace, The Lord is with thee, Blessed are thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now, and at the hour of our death. Amen

Glory Be

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen
