First Sunday of Advent
When peaceful stillness
and the night in its swift
course was half spent,
Your all-powerful word, from
heaven’s royal throne
bounded, a fierce warrior, into
the doomed land, …
As we begin this season of Advent, let us reflect on the above quote from the Book of Wisdom. It is a prophetic reference to the Incarnation. The Divine Word of God, the Second Person of the Holy Trinity, took on a human nature to redeem us and bring us back into the family of God. Reflect on how God leaps into our world in the Incarnation and birth of Jesus. Use this biblical quote throughout Advent, to reflect on preparation for the celebration of the Christmas feast. Come, Lord Jesus, and set us free.

What Differences Might We Notice During Advent
When the season of Advent arrives, there are some changes that people often notice in Church. Probably the most obvious of these is that the color of the vestments changes to violet. On the Third Sunday of Advent, which is also called Gaudete Sunday, as the Advent season is already half over, the joy of the Nativity begins to break in and on that day rose colored vestments may be used. Also, the hymn Glory to God in the highest is omitted at Mass, and one will find that there is a certain moderation in the decoration of the altar. While flowers may still be used, the decoration of the altar should not express the full joy of the Nativity of the Lord. The same can be said of the use of the organ and other musical instruments.
A homily is strongly recommended on the weekdays of Advent for the sake of the faithful who regularly take part in the celebration of Mass. Biblical figures who are especially prominent during the Advent season are the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Prophet Isaiah, and St. John the Baptist. The season of Advent cannot be understood without taking into account their role in the fulfillment of God’s plan in Christ for our salvation.

Pope’s Intention for December:
For Catechists: Let us pray for the catechists, summoned to announce the Word of God: may they be its witnesses, with courage and creativity and in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Adults who want to become Catholic or complete the sacraments of initiation (Baptism, Communion, Confirmation) join a program called the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. Participants in the program meet weekly for instruction, prayer, and sharing of the Scriptures. If you or someone you know would like to learn more about the Catholic Faith and how one becomes a Catholic, please contact Samantha Welsh, All Saints Director of Religious Education, to learn about the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA).

Welcome to All Saints Catholic Church
Become a part of our vibrant, faith-filled community.
All Saints Catholic Church is an ever-changing and evolving community, steeped in a rich history and diverse culture. We are dedicated, hard-working families and individuals from virtually every walk of life.
We are disciples of the Lord Jesus. By virtue of our baptism, we live our Catholic faith and are God’s voice calling out to others. We celebrate the Eucharist and Sacraments, live out the scriptures in service to our neighbors, and are faithful to Church teachings.
We are called to keep our faith vibrant and to pass on the faith for all generations to come, that we may bring others closer to Christ and continue building the kingdom of God.
“Every baptized person has received the vocation to proclaim — to proclaim something to proclaim Jesus — the vocation and mission to evangelize: to proclaim Jesus.” — Pope Francis
