Mary, for you this time before Jesus’ birthday was a quiet time. Now we are all waiting for your Son, Jesus. Mary, Mother of Jesus and our mother, show us how to be ready for your Son. Come, Jesus! The whole world is waiting for you.
This holiday season, we are once again collecting new clothing for the men at Ozanam Inn in New Brunswick. Ozanam Inn is a temporary homeless shelter run by Catholic Charities that currently hosts 40 men. Last year, St. Mary’s delivered more than 400 gifts to the men at the Inn. Help us continue this tradition by taking a tag from the tree in the Narthex. Place the unwrapped gift under the tree by noon on December 14. Thank you for your continued support of this worthy Christmas project.
Father, we’re going to celebrate your Son’s birthday soon. We will be preparing our home, our gifts, our food. Help us to remember to prepare our hearts. Help us in all our busyness to remember it’s your Son we’re getting ready for. Help us help a friend, keep a promise, or visit someone lonely. Come Lord Jesus! We need you.
