2023 Advent Adult Enrichment

A Biblical Walk Through the Mass 

- Dr. Edward Sri

The Mass is nothing short of amazing. Through it, we encounter God in the most intimate way possible as we hear him speak to us in the Liturgy of the Word and as we receive him Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity in the Holy Eucharist. In his video-based study A Biblical Walk Through the Mass, Dr. Edward Sri explores the biblical roots of the words and gestures we experience at Mass and explains their profound significance. This fascinating tour of the Mass will renew your faith and deepen your love for and devotion to the Holy Eucharist. Please join us!

Thursdays:  Dec. 7th & Dec. 14th

Morning Session at 9:00 am

The Men of St. Joseph Next Meeting

Please join us for Faith Formation,

Fellowship and Food.

Saturday, December 16th

@ 7:15 – 9:00 am

in the Church Hall

The Men of St. Joseph is an association of Christian men across the United States, united under the Catholic Church, who meet on a regular basis to learn and pray together and encourage each other to be the spiritual leaders of their families. We know it is a struggle to balance being a husband, father, worker, coach, friend and spiritual leader. The Men of St. Joseph understand that with each other’s support and shared accountability, it becomes a little easier. Most importantly we know that if we surrender our day to day problems to God, we will be better husbands, fathers and friends. Through Christ, we will become the best version of ourselves. We welcome all men to join us on this journey.

Please sign up at: or email Deacon Doug Hoffer at:

Living the Liturgy at Home

Make Straight the Path


Lord Jesus Christ, you are Emmanuel, God with us. In these holy days of Advent, come to your people with justice, healing, and peace. Fill us with a spirit of love and generous service, so that our hearts will be ready to celebrate your coming at Christmas and our lives will reflect your Kingdom that will last forever when you come again. You live and reign with God the Father, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.


How is our family preparing the way of the Lord during this Advent season?

Talk about your Baptisms, where you were baptized, and who your godparents are.


Your family might try living simply for one day this week. John the Baptist lived in the desert because his focus and attention was on his mission. How might your family live one day without the computer, the television, or cell phones? Use the time to focus on reading Scripture or praying or service.


...that John the Baptist was actually Jesus’ cousin? He was born to Zechariah and Elizabeth, who was thought to have been too old to have a child. Mary visited her cousin Elizabeth when both women were pregnant, and John leapt in Elizabeth’s womb, the first to testify to Jesus. As a grown man, John also testified to the coming of the Christ.
