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 10:00 A.M. Mass on Christmas will be said for them.
NATURAL FAMILY PLANNING: Mother Teresa was so vocal about her support of NFP that she spoke about it in her acceptance speech for the Nobel Peace Prize…..saying it was a way to postpone childbearing” without destroying the life that God has created in us".
