Pastor’s Desk

Dear Friends,
As we begin this busy time in preparation for Christmas, the world seems to be so fast paced and sometimes we miss the small stuff. I invite you to take time each day to make your relationship stronger with Jesus Christ.
This week for instance, we celebrate the Feast Day of the Immaculate Conception of Mary. God chose her to be the person, who would bring Jesus into the world. One might ask themselves who do I need to bring Jesus to this Christmas. I invite you to welcome someone in your family and neighbors to join you in sharing a “Spiritual Christmas”.
I would also like to thank you for your on-going generosity. In the month of November, with the challenge of the Religious Education students and families, our parish and parishioners donated more than 2,300 pounds of food. Thank you!!

Little Church Project
We have completed an “Energy Audit” with the assistance of the Diocese of Bridgeport. The Energy Audit is sponsored by the State of Connecticut and United Illuminating. The audit looked at heating and air conditioning costs, lighting costs, and use of electricity, our boilers and buildings for their efficiency. The Parish Leadership will be meeting with people who compiled the audit in January. More information to follow!

Christmas Crèche
Please pick-up a copy of the “Blessing for the Christmas Crèche.” Next week we will have for you, the “Blessing for the Christmas Tree.”

Building & Grounds Committee
The Building & Grounds Committee will meet on Saturday, December 10 at 9:30 in Madonna Hall.

Handicapped Parking
The four spaces directly in front of the Church on Second Hill Lane are handicapped parking spaces. These are for our parishioners who have a handicap parking sticker.

Monsignor Martin P. Ryan, Pastor
