Each year since 1990, on or near the first day of winter and the longest night of the year, the National Coalition for the Homeless (NCH) has sponsored National Homeless Persons' Memorial Day to bring attention to the tragedy of homelessness, the lack of affordable housing, and to remember our friends without stable housing who have paid the ultimate price for our nation's failure to address this crisis. This event is open to the public; all are invited to participate in solidarity with those who believe health care, housing, and physical safety are basic human rights, not benefits to be earned.

 

The Annual Advent Prayer Partner Bread Exchange

New this year!  As the first Sunday of Advent falls on December 2nd, the annual Advent Prayer Partner Bread Exchange will take place at every mass on the weekend of December 1/2.  Should your household of faith wish to participate as an Advent Prayer Partner, please bring a fresh loaf of bread of any kind to the liturgy of your choice that weekend, a loaf of fresh bread to be blessed/shared/exchanged.  Please clip out the prayer card below, add the last name(s) of your Household of Faith and then attach it with scotch tape to the bread you bring to church.  The loaf you then bring home in exchange will be marked as such so that our parish family of faith may be more deeply connected throughout all of Advent through acts of prayer, charity and justice.  Questions?  Concerns?  Please contact Susan for more information —- and thank you in advance for your consideration of this Advent Prayer Partner Bread Exchange.
