*Holy Hour: There will be Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament during a Holy Hour on Thursday January 4th, starting at 7:00 p.m. This is in response to the Sacred Heart of Jesus’ request to St. Margaret Mary. He asks each of us: “Could you not watch one hour with Me?”

*Christmas Program delayed till January 7: Due to sickness, the Christmas program has been delayed. The students of Our Lady of the Sun Academy will be putting on an Epiphany Program on January 7, in the Church Hall, after the Sunday Mass. Please come enjoy some doughnuts and coffee and watch the children present “Amahl and the Night Visitors (a story of the three Kings on their way to Bethlehem) and listen to some Christmas carols.

*Prayers Requested: Please pray for the sick in the parish especially, Lucy Muscarnera, Jessie Gaines, Holly Hightower, Max and Karen Hartman, and Carl Lukkes.

*Calendars: There are Calendars for the year, 2018, for sale in the Book Store. A Catholic Calendar is helpful to have in the house in order to be reminded on which days are the Holy days of obligation, when one is to fast and abstain etc.

Happy New Year!
