"For the second time,at SJP parish, we received the
grace of living the 6:30 masses in Advent. The tradition comes to us from
Bavaria; little Joseph Ratzinger enjoyed it with his parents at Marktl-am-Inn
every year. We too,have made the effort to WAKE UP and WATCH ! Our church
offered a lovely sign of the re-awakening as each individual candle added its
light to the many others; a beautiful image of our mission as baptized
christians,willing to bring the Light of the Good News wherever we happen to
AND TELL THEM…"
Two nieces of mine,as well as of former members of our parish (Frederic and Anne-Sophie de Narp) would like to come to the US and live in an American family,in the spring. As an exchange,two American girls would be welcome to travel to Brittany and spend time with Alexia (15) and Ostiane (12).
Contact their parents,Diane and Philippe de Lafforest :
Come and experience a quiet moment in the Real Presence of Jesus on the altar! Thursdays from 7 pm to Fridays 7pm. A time to relax and let the Lord enter our busy lives and bring us peace.
Into a box at the foot of saint Joseph's statue,you may slip your intentions and thankful prayers. No one but God will read them,and they will be offered at our masses.
"Some 30 parishioners answered the invitation to come to the Rectory, to listen to Nicky Gumble's talk on the subject: 'Who is Jesus?'
We enjoyed a wonderful coffee and dessert, prepared by our little Alpha team.
Keep watching for the next event!"
