Third Week of Advent

img 6891-700Our week begins with “Gaudete Sunday.” Gaudete means “rejoice” in Latin.  It comes from the first word of the Entrance antiphon on Sunday.  The spirit of joy that begins this week comes from the words of Paul, “The Lord is near.”  This joyful spirit is marked by the third candle of our Advent wreath, which is rose colored, and the rose colored vestments often used at the Eucharist.

RediscoverCatholicism

“What is it about Mother Teresa, St. Francis of Assisi, and Pope Francis that makes them so interesting.”

(“Rediscover Ca-tholicism” by Matthew Kelly)

We will be distributing a free copy of Rediscover Catholicism to each family following 

all the Christmas Masses this year. It is Fr. Walsh’s hope that you might read this book 

and consider passing it on to someone who may be questioning their faith or who is 

filled with doubts about the relevance of Catholicism today.

 

In January and February 2015, we will be offering follow-up on Rediscover Catholicism. 

We will offer an information session and small discussion groups for those who wish to 

further discuss the book.

 

Rediscover Catholicism!
