OUTDOOR MASS - NOVEMBER 28, 2021

 

FR. DIPERRI'S WEEKLY EMAIL - NOVEMBER 26, 2021

First Sunday Advent November 27/28, 2021

Hope your Thanksgiving went well.  The blessed season of Advent is upon us as we prepare for Christmas. Advent has two-fold purpose: recognition of the historic First Coming of Jesus Christ into the world at Christmas and in anticipation for the Second Coming of Christ at the end of the ages as the Just Judge and King of Heaven and Earth.                                     

WEEKEND MASSES:

  • Saturday, November 27:  4:00pm – INDOORS
  • Sunday, November 28:  9:00am Mass INDOORS
  • Sunday, November 28: 11:30am Mass OUTDOORS
    • (This will be our 80th Consecutive Sunday Weekend Outdoor Mass)
    • Livestreamed on Our Lady’s Facebook page as well as on our parish web: olca.org
    • Kindly bring your own chair to all Outdoor Services and Masses.

Reminder: Time of Outdoor Weekend Mass may alter each weekend due to weather predictions.  Each Friday evening please consult weekly email, parish phone message, parish web and the Parish Facebook page for Mass times and location.

  • CHURCH HEATING SYSTEM is regretfully not operating.  A mechanical piece to the boiler has failed and needs to be replaced.  The part is on order and hopefully the manufacturer will secure the item and ship to contractor after the weekend.  Please dress warmly for all Masses – including the indoor ones this weekend and into next week.

  • GRAND ANNUAL – Many thanks to all who have contributed to the 2021 Grand Annual.   Follow-up reminder letters have been sent to registered parishioners who have not yet contributed.  Please consider a donation to this most important annual parish campaign in order for the parish to meet its fiscal requirements.  Copies of the original Grand Annual letter and parish financials are also available on our website:  www@olca.org or by contacting the parish office.   
  • WINTER MEAT RAFFLE CALENDARS – These will make excellent Christmas gifts for family and friends. Additional Raffle Calendars are available at the Parish Office and offer many prizes.  Winners will be drawn daily throughout January.  The Winter Meat Raffle Calendars take the place of the annual Turkey-Rama due to the pandemic.  Hopefully, the on-site Turkey-Rama will return in 2022.

PARISH FUNDRAISER

OUR WINTER MEAT RAFFLE CALENDAR FUNDRAISER IS HERE...

We will not be holding our Turkey-Rama again this year due to the Covid variants.  This was part of our two year plan when COVID-19 distrupted all of our lives back in March 2020.  In its place we are doing the Meat Raffle Calendars.  Click HERE for more information.

MASK MANDATE:  Follow City and State guidelines for the mask mandate protocols.  Any updates will be posted on our website, in our weekly bulletin and in the weekly email sent out by the Pastor.

As the affects of COVID-19 continue - we ask you to continue to support our Parish.

  • Please sign up for ONLINE GIVING.  This will ensure steady income for our parish during these most uncertain times.
