Second Sunday of Advent

“St. John Neumann, Our Patron Saint” Presented by Msgr. Navarro

Tuesday December 11 at 7:29 pm AE-102-103.

St. John Neumann was a dreamer, an adventurer, a prodigious worker for the Gospel, a linguist, an advocate for the poor and the immigrant, a Holy man.

Come to learn about this man of God, our Patron and model.

Have you or someone you know suffered from chronic pain (particularly back pain), for months or years, in spite of trying everything to cure it? If so, there is hope! Come to

AE room 102/103 on Monday, December 10 at 7:30 pm to learn about TMS

A common cause of chronic pain that can be cured in a few months without medication or surgery, just knowledge. This is NOT a gimmick and can reclaim your normal life

Our next outing will be on Saturday, December 15 only (no outing on Sunday, December 16).

The Ministry will serve the homeless a special Christmas Dinner from Harvey’s BBQ purchased through the generosity of SJN Parish’s “Pennies from Heaven” collection. Therefore, we will not need hot food.

However, we will still need:

  • Individually wrapped sandwiches (no mayo) ham & cheese sandwiches, turkey & cheese sandwiches, or PB & J sandwiches, etc.
  • snacks
  • canned sodas and bottles of water (12 ounce)
  • unpeeled hard boiled eggs

Please bring your food donations to the church pavilion no later than 3:00 pm.

**Note** All approved volunteers must arrive at the St. John Neumann pavilion by 3:00 pm to pick up their MRM volunteer badge. Volunteers without a badge will not be permitted into the facility by the MRM staff. The group will depart promptly at 3:30 pm God bless you.

Lord I pray that Christmas would not sneak up on me this year. I don’t want to arrive on Christmas morning with only my gifts wrapped and tasks accomplished. I want a heart that is full and prepared for Your coming. Help me this season to be active in waiting for You.

Give me eyes to see, ears to hear, and a heart to understand the signs, beauty and wonder of the One I am waiting for. This season, give me an awareness of the carols, the cards, and the people around me. Remind me of the truths of Christmas: with You all things are possible, even when I am like Zechariah and Mary with hearts that don’t understand. When Your promises seem impossible. God, remind me once again “with God all things are possible.” This Christmas, fill my heart with the Christmas message. Don’t let fear, pain or sadness steal Your promises. I want to celebrate You as a promise-making and promise-keeping God.

Aging religious need your help. Senior Catholic sisters, brothers, and religious order priests ministered for years for little to no pay. Their sacrifices now leave their religious communities without adequate retirement savings.

Your gift to today’s second collection for the Retirement Fund for Religious helps to provide medications, nursing care, and more for tens of thousands of elderly religious. Please be generous.

We will be awarding 3 High School and 3 Grade school scholarships to the winners of this years Essay contest. The students’ parent or grandparent must be an active or deceased member of the Men’s Club as of 3/1/19 to participate.

Applications will be available at the Parish & School Office and on the online in the near future.

Please bring a new blanket next weekend. We will be collecting them after all masses, or you can drop them off at the Parish Office.

Thank you for your kindness to the elderly during this Christmas.
