Thanks to all who have helped and who will continue to help with moving things to our new property. This is a daunting task and we have certainly appreciated the use of Doug and Linda’s truck! Sunday, December 6, will be the biggest moving day, with the need for every remaining thing to be removed by the end of the day. We will have a brief coffee hour after Liturgy and then begin to pack up liturgical books, the altar, chairs, tables, filing cabinets, etc.
While we are in the midst of moving and worshiping in rented space, we cannot forget that Advent is a time to prepare our hearts not only for the annual celebration of our Lord’s Nativity, but also for his Second Coming at the end of time. A booklet of Advent devotions is available for families and individuals who wish to read the prophecies concerning the Messiah, to pray to be prepared for His coming again, and to observe the specific saints’ days in this season.
Our usual collection of canned goods for the Food for the Hungry program will be curtailed this year, but we should not neglect the effort. Please collect food and keep it in your home to be brought to church in January for donation to a local food bank. You can also make a monetary donation in place of food items (make checks to St. Gregory’s with “Food for the Hungry” in the memo line).
