To help us in this journey of Advent, to help us keep the right priorities and our eyes on the Lord, Dynamic Catholic is offering a free service to help us prepare for Christmas well. Beginning on Sun., Nov 27 and continuing every day until Dec 26, they’ll send us through email, short inspirational videos, practical tips, or free Christmas music that will help us slow down during the busy Christmas season and focus on what’s really important. To sign up for this free email service, go to: http://dynamiccatholic.com/best-advent-ever/#bae_about_section. Or Google search “Best Advent Ever.”
Our Archdiocesan Annual Appeal is up to 86%. We were assessed $54,292 to support the work of the Archdiocese from training Seminarians, on-going education for teachers and catechists, administrative work like HR and Property Support, to Chaplains for hospitals and prisons. We only have about $8K more to go. And if you’re able to join me at the 1% level ($543), or it’s younger sibling 0.5% level ($272) or higher, we’d like to invite you and a significant other to a New Year’s Eve dinner at Moriarty Hall, following the Saturday’s vigil mass. Save the date and invitations will soon follow. Gratefully, Fr. Dan

I’m not quite sure how old our carpet is. A long time parishioner said it may be as old as 40 years. In any event, our carpet is worn and in need of replacement. Encouraged by a couple of generous donors, we’d like to replace it before Christmas. We have scheduled to begin the work on December 12 and it should be completed by the end of the week. If you’d like to make a contribution to the Carpet replacement, please make a check to St. Anne Church and include on the memo line, “Carpet.” Thank you! –Fr. Dan
