THE JESSE GIVING TREE
We invite you to participate in this year’s Jesse Giving Tree which will benefit Primavera and Stand Up For Kids. In keeping with the Advent Season, we will use the Jesse Tree and symbols as a way to remind ourselves that the Advent season is a time to prepare for the Christmas season. The symbols are labeled with a ‘wish gift’ for a boy, girl, mother, father, or teenager. Please take a symbol and return the gift by Mon., Dec. 15. The gifts do not need to be wrapped. The genealogy of Christ (based on Matthew 1:1-17) is frequently shown in the form of a tree which springs from Jesse, the father of David, and bears as its fruit the various ancestors of Christ. This “family tree” of Christ, has ornament symbols of an ancestor or of a prophecy which foretells Jesus’ coming. As we enter the Advent Season, a season of joyful anticipation, let us pray for one another and keep in mind God’s wondrous love.
ADVENT RECONCILIATION SERVICE
The Newman Advent Reconciliation Service will be held Tuesday, December 2 at 7:00 PM. Please take advantage of the opportunity for the Sacrament of Reconciliation during this wonderful event.
FAITH AND SCIENCE
Join us on Wednesday, December 3 at 7:30 pm in Green Hall for a special presentation by Fr. Paul Gabor, SJ, PhD. The title of his presentation is, “Rebirth of Time”. The New Year is not just a convention. Where does the power of such customs come from? What can be said about cosmic cycles of time from the perspective of a Vatican astronomer? Join us for this intriguing presentation as we prepare to enter 2015.
