Please print your full name, address, and phone number on the offertory envelope, when making your first 3-4 2016 donations. This will ensure that the office staff correctly record your personal information (to ensure you receive an income tax receipt at the end of the year).

Inspirational Quotes during Advent
“Be courageous and go to confession!”
“Forgiveness is not something we can give ourselves. One asks forgiveness, one asks it of another person, and in confession, we ask forgiveness from Jesus.” – Pop Francis
