Nativity Fast / Advent

nativity-fast-web-siteThe Nativity Fast begins Thursday, November 15!

This is a joyous fast in anticipation of the Nativity of Christ.

In the weeks between now and December 24, we prepare ourselves to celebrate the birth in the flesh of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Give careful consideration to prepare for confession, participate in almsgiving, and apply the Church’s prescription for fasting.

You will find great articles and suggestions on making this Advent and Christmas season truly enriching by perusing the resources on our Archdiocese Website’s special Nativity page: [Click here].

Confession:

Every Christian feels a natural yearning of the heart towards God, a true desire to taste the sweetness of communion, of being with Him as He created us to be. This longed-for inner peace comes to us through the Mystery of Repentance, Holy Confession. Confessions are heard after Saturday Vespers or by contacting Fr. Michael for an appointment Tuesdays-Fridays. Booklets to assist you in preparing for confession are available on the Parishioners’ table or by visiting [Confession Guide].
