Mission:

From Father Taglianetti
Advent is a season of joy, expectation, and preparation. Advent comes from the Latin word "Adventus" which means "coming". During this season we prepare for 2 "comings" of Christ: one, the annual celebration of Christ's first coming at Christmas, the other, his second coming in glory at the end of time. On the first Sunday of Advent we heard Jesus himself say in the Gospel of Matthew "Stay awake! For you do not know on which day your Lord will come". This is a reminder that all of us need to be prepared to meet the Lord, not just at the end of our lives, but at any time! The Church encourages all of us to be prepared to meet the Lord by going to Mass more often, going to confession, taking quiet time for prayer, and by making some small sacrifices during the season of Advent. May Advent be one of great joy, expectation, and preparation as we await the coming of the Lord Jesus!

On August 15, 2021 Archbishop Perez reinstituted the obligation to attend Sunday Mass. That statement can be found here: https://archphila.org/statement-of-archbishop-nelson-j-perez-regarding-reinstating-the-obligation-to-attend-sunday-mass/. As most of us have returned to our normal activities like going to the store, going to the shore, playing sports, or going to restaurants, we know that we can safely gather together as the Body of Christ for the worship of Almighty God. The MOST ESSENTIAL thing in our lives is our relationship with our God and Sunday Mass is THE ESSENTIAL way for us to build up that relationship. At Holy Mass, we gather as brothers and sisters in Christ to listen and learn from the inspired Word of God in the Scriptures, we bring and offer the sacrifices of our daily lives and unite them to Christ's Sacrifice on the Cross, and we are fed by the very Bread from Heaven: the Holy Eucharist. Over the last two years, we have seen that virtual or livestream does not compare to actually being with others in person. The same is true with our worship. Nothing compares to actually being there. It is time to return to the practice of attending Sunday Mass.
 
Check your home parish website for Mass and Confession times. A good habit begins with a first step. Make a resolution to go to Mass this Sunday. Your priest will be happy to see you, but more importantly Jesus will be happy to see you too.
