    NEW THIS YEAR! We have a Hope Tree out- side both churches. We have placed knitted hats & mittens on them. People who need them are encouraged to take them anonymously when they

    go by. If you’d like to help us keep the trees supplied, you can drop off your handmade/bought knit items in the box- es inside each church. We’ll try to keep this going through the winter.

    Reconciliation @ St. Gabriel: Reconciliation will be celebrated at St. Paul in Franklin at 3 PM this Sunday (12/15). Fr. Ray will be the only priest available. Additional confessions are:

    Friday 12/20 6 PM (F) 7 PM (T) Saturday 12/21 begins at 3 PM (F) Monday 12/23 6PM (T) 7 PM (F)

    This is a great opportunity to prepare ourselves for the coming of the Lord.

    It is not too late to contribute to the special collec- tion for the Retired Religious. This collection helps provide for the long term care of our aging reli- gious. Please plan to give back to those who have given so much.

    The parish Christmas Trees are up in both churches! There are three choices: your family can make your own ornament at home or you can pur- chase an ornament that you think best represents your family or you can use the one we provided last

    year (they’re in the convent wing - in alphabetical order in Franklin, and on the small table in Tilton - with no names). There is no limit to the number of ornaments you add to the tree—we have noticed each child likes to put his own up! Thank you to the families taking the time to add a personal touch to the tree every year!

    Christmas Flowers If you wish to donate toward our Christmas flowers, please use the envelope provided. If

    you do not use parish envelopes, just put your dona- tion in a plain envelope marked ‘Christmas Flow- ers’. If you would like your donation to be in memory of loved ones, please write the name on the envelope.

    Prayers Requested All those traveling during the Christmas


    Pope Francis’ Prayer Intentions for December - The Very Young: That every country resolutely com- mits to taking the necessary measures to make the fu- ture of the very young, especially those who suffer, a priority.

    THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK All Part of the Master Plan: During the next two weeks, we will review God’s Plan to save us. How I mar- vel at how well-thought-out and well-executed it was. Of course, the entire Old Testament set the stage and es- tablished the case that we needed to be saved (from the devil and from ourselves). But if you zoom in on the Savior’s birth, it gets even more impressive. There’s the angel Gabriel who came to announce good news and encourage cooperation. There’s Elizabeth and Zechari- ah, asked to bring forth a very special child, one who would grow up to “prepare the way of the Lord”. There’s John the Baptist himself, inspired by God to change minds and hearts. There’s the Holy Virgin Mary, con- ceived without sin so she could be a fitting mother for the Son of God. And, of course, Joseph, who had more than enough faith to embrace the awesome responsibili- ties God was entrusting to him. And God even orga

    nized a welcoming party: local people, shepherds and magi who could make the newborn feel loved and want- ed. Despite the challenges they faced, like advanced age, strict moral codes, political intrigues and a story-line so incredible that could only have been developed by God, it all fell in place beautifully. You and I are part of another section of God’s Master Plan. After all, God is not done saving the world! How well prepared are we to identify our role and assume it? I’d like to know if God is sending me to the ends of the world or across the street? Does He want me speak or lead by example? Do I leave everything behind or use my blessings for His purposes? So many questions! Now that I’ve seen how He operates, I’m confident that if I’m as willing to be a part of God’s Plan as were those who went before me, He’ll let me know what He has got planned.
