FEAST OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION . . . .During its founding days, our country was dedicated to the Mother of God under the title of the Immaculate Conception, hence the naming of the Bascilica in Washington, DC. And so in a very real way it is “Our Feast Day”. Please note this year December 8th falls on a Friday and it is a Holy Day of obligation. Mass will be celebrated at 8:00 AM and 7:00 PM in the Church. In keeping with the Holy Day, the parish office will be closed.
ADVENT GIVING TREE . . . Look for the Giving Tree with Star Tags in the vestibule of the Church during Advent. The Assisi House is in need of new children’s clothing of various sizes from 6 to 16 to help make the holiday special. Please take one of the tags off the tree, purchase the item of clothing, and return the unwrapped clothing with tag to the container in the Church by Sunday, December 10th.
RECONCILIATION/EUCHARISTIC ADORATION . . . The season of Advent is upon us. It is a 4 week period of time to prepare ourselves for the Great Feast of Christmas. And one of the best ways to prepare is by receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation. With this in mind, a reminder that St. Casimir has confession every Saturday afternoon at 4:00 PM and on Monday, December 18th there will be an evening of Adoration and the opportunity to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation as well. Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament will take place at 7:00 PM in the church and for 50 minutes you may spend time in quiet prayer and there will be a number of friars present to hear confessions. The evening will conclude with sung night prayer and benediction of the Blessed Sacraments at 8:00 PM.
PARISH OFFICE HOURS . . . Office Hours are extended on Thursday evenings until 8:00 PM to help accommodate parishioners who work during the day and need to conduct parish business. The parish office is opened until noon on Fridays. Parish Office will be closed on Friday, December 8. Mass will be celebrated at 8:00 AM & 7:00 PM. The parish office will be closed at Noon on Wednesday and then closed on Thanksgiving Day and the day after.
