St. Hilary Parish this Week

Friday, Nov. 28, 2014 - Dear parishioners:  We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving feast yesterday with your loved ones!
URGENT:  I just received a call from Gail Scott, informing me that only two people called her regarding the bag lunches for the homeless, which are due this Sunday morning:  so, if you took a slip of paper last weekend, promising to make five bag lunches and bring them back on Nov. 30, please call Gail right away so she will know whether you can do the lunches. Otherwise, she herself will have to make the lunches. If you took one of the lunch slips last Sunday, Gail's number is listed on the sheet of paper along with instructions.
IMPORTANT but not urgent:  We will enjoy a terrific parish retreat, led by Mary Romo, this coming week. Please check the bulletin, or our parish website, for more information about these three days of grace (Dec. 2, 3, and 4), which will include both morning and evening sessions. In addition, you will have the chance for Spiritual Direction from Mary Romo or Sister Dolores, and the Sacrament of Penance (Confession) with Father Roger or me on each of these three days as well.
CHARITABLE and fun:  We still have plenty of boxes in the church for those of you willing to take home a box, follow the directions on the outside, and bring it back in time to make a family's Christmas dinner possible. Some boxes are for smaller families, others for larger families, so it's up to you!
CHRISTMASSY to the max:  If you wish to take a star from the Giving Tree and purchase a gift for the child listed, you can bring Christmas joy to a needy boy or girl. What a great chance to be Santa-like in the best sense of the word.
EXTREMELY HELPFUL but not required:  To support your parish, please pick up one of the forms in the vestibule and sign up for EFT ("Electronic Funds Transfer"), or do so through your own bank by including St. Hilary Parish in  your "bill pay" system. Our people are fantastically generous to the poor, but the parish also needs your charity, especially given the problems we've experienced recently with the boilers, the gates, the heating systems, the pipes, and the normal wear and tear that always keeps our parochial elves busy trying to keep things working. For more ways to help, hop on over to:  http://www.sthilary.org/registration-giving/
God bless you and your loved ones, as we begin the great Season of Advent tomorrow night.

God bless you for caring about Saint Hilary Parish. As you know, we've had some major problems lately with the boilers, a break in the water lines between the gym and middle school, and so all of this costs money to repair. We thank the many generous souls who enable us to keep the church, hall, school, and grounds in good shape!

Please join us in Tarantino Hall after the 9:00am, 11:00am & 5:00pm Masses for Family Advent Wreath-Making!  All materials will be supplied, but if you have your brass ring from last year, please bring it to use. You and your children can make an Advent wreath to help your family prayerfully prepare for Jesus' birth. This is a wonderful and holy tradition to uphold.
