WELCOME TO ST.

DAVID’S Commemorazione dei Fedeli Defunti L’Uomo non può rifiutarsi di sperare, per piccole che siano le sue speranze, e anche se la vita sembra non favorire il suo ottimismo. Ma il fondamento della speranza cristiana è solido: resisteremo alle angosce e alle incertezze della vita, perchè Dio ci ama ormai per sempre. Questa convinzione si basa sulla prova di amore che il Cristo ci ha dato morendo per noi. Dopo la croce, abbiamo la certezza che colui che si è seduto a tavola coi peccatori, ha veramente dato loro la possibilità di condurre una vita nuova, liberata, in comunione con lui. Commemorazione dei Fedeli Defunti Questa domenica, 2 novembre, tutte le Messe (inclusa quella del sabato sera) saranno offerte in suffragio di tutti i nostri fedeli defunti. Venite a pregare per le anime sante. (Troverete buste di offerte all’entrata della chiesa.) Società di Donne Cattoliche Domenica, 30 novembre, si terà la vendita annuale di articoli natalizi e “stelle di natale” nella sala parrocchiale. Ci sarà anche una bella collazione organizzata dalle donne della parrocchia. I biglietti sono già in vendita per $10.00, dopo le Messe domenicali all’entrata della chiesa. Potrete anche fare una foto con San Nicola. Non mancate!!! Baby Bottles for Life Questa domenica, 2 novembre, le bottigliette saranno distribuite dopo tutte le Messe per raccogliere spiccioli e dare il nostro appoggio ad “Aid to Women” per difendere il diritto alla vita. Questo sarà il progetto “pro-vita” per il mese di novembre. Primo Venerdì Questo venerdì, 7 novembre, ci sarà l’esposizione del Santissimo Sacramento in chiesa dalle 8:00 am alle 7:00 pm. (Ci saranno le confessioni dopo la Messa del mattino.) Shepherd’s Trust L’annuale colletta per il fondo di pensione per i sacerdoti si terà domenica, 16 novembre.
