Archdiocesan Annual Appeal Please note:
1. Donations may be made by cash, cheque or credit card. If you are donating by cheque, please make the cheque
payable to Holy Family Regina.
2. If you have been making monthly contributions through pre-authorized payments at Holy Family,
please hand in your pledge card to the office.
New Collection Envelopes for 2015 will be issued in early December. NOW is the time to let us know if you
want to make changes in the way you make your donations. As parishioners you have the option of receiving
envelopes if you make regular donations, or you may make your contributions through our Pre-Authorized
Payment Plan. You may want to consider making your contributions the hassle-free way. With our Pre-Authorized Payment
option, your contributions are made automatically on the monthly payment date - and you don’t even have to sign the cheque!
Pre- Authorization Payment sheets are available at the “New to the Parish” table in the foyer. Either way you receive a set of
envelopes with a number unique to its user. Anyone who makes donations either of these two methods receives a tax-receipt.
If you do not already have envelopes and wish to use them in 2015, please fill out the form at the back of this bulletin and check
the appropriate box. Please make any changes prior to November 15.
A good, pious way to help us in our Advent preparation has been the use of the Advent wreath. The wreath is a circle, which
has no beginning or end. So we call to mind how our lives, here and now, participate in the eternity of God’s plan of
salvation. The wreath is made of fresh plant material, because Christ came to give us new life through His passion, death, and
resurrection. Three candles are purple, symbolizing penance, preparation, and sacrifice; the pink candle symbolizes the same
but highlights the third Sunday of Advent, when we rejoice because our salvation is nearer now than when we first became believers.
The light represents Christ, who entered this world to scatter the darkness of evil and show us the way of righteousness. The progression
of lighting candles shows our increasing readiness to meet our Lord. In all, during Advent we strive to fulfill the opening prayer for the
Mass of the First Sunday of Advent: “Grant your faithful, we pray, almighty God, the resolve to run forth to meet your Christ with righteous
deeds at his coming, so that, gathered at his right hand, they may be worthy to possess the heavenly Kingdom.”
