MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL

Enjoy MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL in the company of your friends - Baltimore Ravens vs. New Orleans Saints
The Saints have better passing stats, but the Raven defense is stronger.

All donations above break-even for the season will help pay for new drinking fountains at our school; any excess will go to the parking lot re-pavement fund.

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.
Please note that this family event will take the place of our regularly-scheduled Religious Ed classes on December 7.
REST IN PEACE:
Baby Lucca James Presta
Please pray for Ericka and David Presta, whose little boy died just a month before his expected birth.
They are new to our parish, they have twin girls just 22 months old, and were looking forward to the birth of their son.
As they prepare for Lucca's funeral rites this week, keep them and their loved ones in your thoughts and prayer during this very painful time.

WARM CLOTHING DRIVE
As the weather gets colder here in Marin County, it is time for all of us to check our closets and drawers for warm clothing to donate to the St. Vincent de Paul Society.
If you haven't worn it for a year or more, you never will - but it will be treasured by a homeless person. Please fill the bins in the back of the church!
God bless you for helping god’s poor through your generosity.
