This Sunday, the 3rd Sunday of Advent is traditionally called Gaudete (Rejoice) Sunday, because Lord is near.
At the 11:30 a.m. Mass this Sunday, we will celebrate with Fr. Allan White, O.P., the 40th anniversary of his profession of vows of poverty, chastity and obedience. Please join us to rejoice in God for the gift of his ministry, and to thank Fr. Allan for his many years of dedicated service to the people of God.
And again, I say, rejoice!
