Blessings in this first week of Advent!  As we unite in "joyful expectancy" of Christ's coming, we encourage you to follow Bishop Farrell's "O Antiphons" blog series and take advantage of the Advent resources available here.

Also, as you are preparing for the celebration of Christmas and looking for a great gift to share with loved ones, you might consider two unique, pro-life ways to give:

Christmas_Card.jpg Consider a special donation, in honor or memory of a loved one, to the Catholic Pro-Life Committee. Donate here, and we will send you Christmas cards that you can send to each person you decide to honor or remember.

Christmas card donations benefit the CPLC and local Catholic pregnancy resource centers White Rose and Birth Choice.

Singing talent Erin Muñoz, who performed her song “Hallelujah (Light has Come)” at the Christ Child Luncheon, has songs available on iTunes for purchase, including "O Come, O Come Emmanuel" and "Here With Us." Erin’s first Christmas CD is also available on or on iTunes.

A portion of the sales of Erin's music is donated to pro-life ministry.

Also featured at our Christ Child Luncheon, accompanying Erin, was musical talent Joslin – a composer of instrumental music and songwriter who is working on a Christmas Musical based on the Nativity story with a tenative 2013 Christmas release date. For more information please go to
