Advent Wreath Making Event     Join us for our 8th Annual Advent Wreath Making Event on Sunday, December 1, after the 10:30am Mass in Egan Hall.  We will provide all the supplies to make an Advent wreath for your family.  There will be Christmas music, donuts, coffee, hot chocolate and a few small crafts for the younger kids.  A $10 goodwill donation will help cover our costs.  If you are interested in helping out with this event or have a high school student who needs service hours, contact Sheila Marty (or just show up).

Introducing the Men’s Shelter!     From now through May, we will be hosting up to 10 men (ages 45 and up) from St. Martin de Porres shelter.  It’s the same basic schedule as the shelter we’ve been running for the last 25 years except:
    1. We will host men instead of women
    2. Saturday nights only
    3. Staying in the portables near the playground.

Are you willing to help?  We need everyone, but especially men to sign up to stay the night.  You could do this one time this year, once a month, or any amount.  Please get involved in this unique opportunity to spend time with the most vulnerable of our neighbors.  Drivers / stayers / food prep people are needed.  Email Kristin Kent for more details.

Prayer:  Practicing the Presence of God     Don’t miss an evening of reflection presented by Ron Ryan on Tuesday, November 26, 7:00pm in the Parish Administration building.  Wine and snacks will be provided.
