    Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation All U.S. bishops (known collectively as the United States

    Conference of Catholic Bishops, or USCCB) released a

    statement for Lent in 2013 encouraging Catholics to make going

    to confession a significant part of their spiritual lives. The

    message is equally valid for the upcoming Advent season, when

    the Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation will have

    expanded times of availability. Check out the insert in this week's bulletin for the text of this

    pastoral exhortation as well as a handy guide on the back of it

    that will walk you through the process.

    Father Dave’s Office Needs Help The carpet in Father Dave’s office desperately, very desperately,

    needs to be replaced. There is a large tear in the rug that is

    being held together by tape. We are asking for your

    contributions to help replace that office carpeting. His office is

    not a large area and it will not be that expensive to replace.

    Collection containers are at each door. Please consider putting

    in a contribution. We are planning to have the work done for

    Christmas. Thank you for your help and your generosity, it is greatly

    Books are always at our service as friends and

    companions, as teachers and consolers, as

    recreators and amusers. Books are always with us

    and always ready to respond to our wants. We

    can take them with us in our

    wanderings, or gather them around our

    firesides. ~ J. A. Langford

    First Sunday of Advent

    As we begin this season of Advent we need to

    focus on the message of the voice crying out in the

    wilderness. Unfortunately we have a lot of voices in our

    world vying for our attention. On American Idol,

    hundreds of people are all trying to get an audition in

    front of three judges so they can be heard. We have

    candidates for the upcoming election debating on our

    television screens, and we have the late night talk

    show hosts filling the airwaves with voices that are loud,

    funny, irreverent and compelling. But in the midst of

    this world of voices we also have another voice, a

    voice not as loud but persistent with his message. The

    voice of John the Baptist is encouraging us to

    straighten out our lives and address the sinfulness that is

    boring holes into our lives. The time is now for us to turn

    our lives around and get ready for the arrival of the

    Lord, our newborn King. John is calling for repentance;

    A mending of our heart, our mind, and our soul. During

    this season we are all invited to visit a confessor and

    face the sins that have been hampering us in our

    spiritual journey.

    This is actually what Pope Francis is encouraging

    all of us to do during this Year of Mercy which starts on

    December 8th, The Feast of the Immaculate

    Conception. As you are all aware confessing sins is not

    easy to do but the resulting joy is beyond words. I

    would encourage all of you to find the time to

    experience true forgiveness that comes with the

    sacrament. This is an opportunity to turn our lives

    around and live in a way that is complimentary to the

    words of the voice of John the Baptist in the wilderness.

    Heed the voice that is not necessarily the strongest or

    the most attractive. It is a courageous voice that calls

    each of us to conversion, forgiveness, and peace.

    ~Father Dave
