MERRY CHRISTMAS 3 This is the bulletin that will be distributed for our Christmas celebrations so I would like to welcome anyone who may be visiting us for the first time and extend to you a special welcome to the historic Dakota County parishes of St. John’s, St. Mathias and St Mary’s. We are glad to have you with us! I am extremely humbled to be celebrating my first Christmas Masses as your new pastor and am thankful for all who volunteered their time preparing for our special celebrations, especially our musicians and children’s choir directors. Remember as we commemorate the Nativity of our Lord, Christmas is more than just a single day - it is a season that we will mark until the Baptism of our Lord on January 10th. We are also in the early part of the extra-ordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy. Let us never forget the mercy that God shows us every day, whether we realize it or not, and our need to extend that mercy to others we encounter.
Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God is January 1st and a Holy Day of Obligation. Masses will be offered at 5pm on December 31st in New Trier and 10am on New Years Day in Vermillion.
With Gratitude. This week I received a check from the Give to the Max Day for $1559.63 to benefit St. John’s School. Thanks to all who contributed and remember 100% of your tax deductible gift goes to SJB school. If you would like to contribute you can give @ www.givemn.org/organization/410826791-7931342
I will be on vacation January 4th-11th. I have secured coverage for the weekend Masses as well as the school Mass on Wednesday, January 6th at 9 am. All other daily Masses that week are cancelled. May the peace of the Lord be with you always Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas I do not do too much Christmas Shopping. In fact, I only buy a gift for one person: my mother. Growing up as the youngest of seven, I would buy a gift for my mom, my dad, and one of my siblings. I think my parents were behind the idea of drawing names of which sibling to give a gift to, otherwise it would be taxing to buy five other gifts with so little money.
We continued that tradition well into my adulthood and included the spouses of my siblings. After a while, my brother and his wife decided to opt out to start their own family traditions. The rest of us kept it going even after my dad died. Somehow, a friend of the family, who I really did not care for either way, got in the drawing, and when I was told I had her name, I decided that was it. I did manage to switch names with my sister, but I told myself this was the last I was doing this. After all, I was in seminary at the time and trading gifts had lost its luster in favor of making it a more spiritual event. I could not be happier. My Christmases have been merry. And to all who read this: have a very blessed and merry Christmas!!!—TB
