Our Lady of Hope Parish CHRISTMAS CONCERT

SAVE THE DATESunday, December 15 at 4:00 p.m. at Immaculate Heart of Mary.  The choirs of our wonderful churches will combine in a wonderful concert to celebrate the Christmas Season.

December 8th -- The Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary

 The Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which is celebrated on the eighth of December, conflicts with the Second Sunday of Advent on the 2019 liturgical calendar. Because December 8th is a Sunday during the privileged season of Advent, the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception is transferred to the following day: Monday, December 9th.

However, the obligation to attend Mass on the eighth of December does not transfer to the following day. Therefore, in 2019, the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary will be celebrated on Monday, December 9th but will not carry the obligation to attend mass.

We will celebrate Mass on Monday: 

Monday, Dec 9th       8:00am       IHOM

Monday, Dec 9th       6:00pm         ICC

Social Concerns Ministry Outreach

This year the Social Concerns Ministry will be collecting Christmas toys for needy children, gift cards for teenagers, and hats, scarves, mittens, gloves, socks, and underwear. Gift cards for teenagers from Wal-Mart, Target, Shoe stores, and Dunkin Donuts are in high demand and would be greatly appreciated. We will also accept donations for Two Hearts: diapers, clothes size 2-5, winter coats 12 months to 5T, baby food and formula, baby wash/shampoo, diaper cream, onesies, and gift cards. The donations will be given to children by Fish, Catholic Charities, Two Hearts, and Friendly Hands and to our own families that the Social Concerns Ministry donates to. The collection is taking place the weekends of November 30/December 1; December 7/8 and December 14/15. Parishioners can select tags from the giving trees at IHOM located near the choir and ICC in the Bell Tower.  Please drop off the items next to the trees. We are also collecting food for the families our parish deals with directly.  On behalf of the Social Concerns Ministry, we want to thank you for your generosity the entire year.

Our Lady of Calvary Retreat Center   --   Farmington, CT

On the weekend of January 10-12, the women of our parish are invited to Our Lady of Calvary Retreat Center.  Experience a weekend filled with rest, relaxation and spiritual renewal.  At Our Lady of Calvary, the natural beauty of the grounds and the peaceful atmosphere of the retreat house can provide a much needed break from your daily routine.  You’ll have the opportunity to participate in the sacraments, to hear conference talks, to share with other women and to reflect on this year’s theme,  “How can I keep from singing”. 

Come spend time looking for what is beautiful. Intentionally take time to focus on those things that lift you up and help you to feel closer to your God, the One who sends beauty to refresh, nurture, and sustain you, the One who invites you into beauty's Immortal Heart. You may rediscover beautiful things that perhaps you've taken for granted. For information please call the Parish Office at 860.379.5215.

Our Parishes’ Great Adventure Bible Study Continues

Join your fellow parishioner’s ongoing Great Adventure for Acts: the Spread of the Kingdom at Trinita every other Tuesday for 20 sessions from 6:30—8:30pm. 

Acts is the story of how a few Christians empowered by the Holy Spirit were chosen to bring Christ and the Good News to the ends of the earth.  They faced secular forces, internal strife, and hostile crowds, and despite all this, they brought the kingdom of God to a broken world and the love of God to the hearts of men. 

For more information or to register for the Study, forms are available on the tables at the back of the Church, or contact Ken Foisie at 860-678-7922 cfn_inc@comcast.net,  Deborah Kellogg at djkrunning@yahoo.com; Yvonne Stoops at YStoops@gmail.com 860.693.1913 or Sanita Gingras at segingas116@yahoo.com.
