From All of us at IMPACT, we want to wish you a Blessed and Merry Christmas!
“The Sign of the Cross is formidable to the devil, because by the Cross we escape from him. We should make the Sign of the Cross with great respect. We begin with the forehead: it is the head, creation – the Father; then the heart: love, life, redemption – the Son; then the shoulders: strength – the Holy Ghost. Everything reminds us of the Cross.” – St. John Vianney
1) My heart is broken for victims of the Connecticut. I encourage everyone to pray this prayer today…. http://goo.gl/590Y4. Please also pray for the man responsible for all of this.

Monday and Wednesday, the parish is offering Confession to everyone who wants to go.
Also, Wednesday is our last ROCK and abridged Disciple meetings of the year. The ROCK is about the Eucharist and we will be having some adoration.
Our calendar is pretty sweet. You can subscribe to it; which means, if I update the calendar, it will update it for you. You will have the latest version of what is going on, including dates for Retreats, Sunday nights, etc.
We added a Prayer Request page. As you are going through life, it is good to have people that will pray with you. Any prayers that go out there can be made anonymous.
Lastly, please know that you are in our prayers. If there is anything we can do to help you, please let us know.
Tomorrow, we would like to have everyone (including families) join us for the Journey to Bethlehem located at Harvester Christian Church. We are meeting at St. Elizabeth at 5pm, because it is better for us to carpool. Tomorrow is going to be cold and might rain, so please dress accordingly (especially with most of it outside). It is free to attend.
See you tomorrow.
