RETIREMENT FUND FOR THE RELIGIOUS: Support aging religious. Our special collection today is for the Retirement Fund for Religious. Many senior Catholic sisters, brothers, and religious order priests served for little or no pay. Today, religious communities often do not have enough savings to meet retirement needs. Your gift helps provide medications, nursing care, and more for tens of thousands of elderly religious. It also helps ensure younger members can continue the good works of their elders. Please be generous.

THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION of the Blessed Virgin Mary is on Monday, December 9. It is not a Holy Day of Obligation. The regular Mass will be celebrated at 7:30 AM on Monday, December 9.

THE CHRISTMAS BOOTH: This year at our Fall Festival the Christmas booth took in $863.54. The more we have donated the more successful the booth will be in 2020. Check through your Christmas items as you put them up this season. Please bring your excess and unused decorations to the Parish Office. Thanks for your support.

THE ADVENT WREATH: The best-known of all Advent symbols is the Advent wreath, a custom that originated among German Lutherans but was soon adopted by Catholics. The circular shape of the wreath reminds us that the love of God is without beginning or end. The evergreens represent the hope of everlasting, or eternal, happiness. The four candles (three purple and one pink) arranged in a circle with the evergreen boughs, corresponds to the four Sundays of Advent. The purple candles represent our need to prepare for the coming of the Savior, and the pink (rose) candle—lit on the Third Sunday of Advent-(Gaudete Sunday) reminds us to be joyful, for the coming of the Lord is near!

DO YOU SEE THE CRIB IN THE SANCTUARY? Do something nice this Advent Season for someone homebound or in a nursing home from St. Boniface: send a card or take a gift to the person whose name you picked. Spread the joy of Christmas!

CHRISTMAS FLOWERS: Envelopes may be found at the doors of church for those who would like to make a memorial offering in the name of their deceased relatives and friends with a contribution toward the altar flowers for Christmas. Put the names of those for whom the offering is made, enclose whatever you are giving, and place it in the basket before Christmas Day. The 11:00 A.M. Mass on Christmas will be said for them.

CHRISTMAS DECORATING: We are approaching that time of year when we decorate the Church for Christmas We need volunteers to set everything up. Please call Jenni in the Parish Office if you would like to to volunteer for this project. Thanks!
