A special Thanksgiving Mass will be celebrated this Wednesday, November 26, at 5:30 p.m. It’s our hope that those who are cooking, traveling or otherwise engaged on Thursday will be able to attend this Mass. We will also have our usual 8:00 a.m. Thursday Mass on Thanksgiving Day, November 27. However, since Father Rubén will be celebrating Thanksgiving weekend with other Paulists, we will not have Mass and the church and church office will be closed this Friday, November 28.
The Knights of Columbus’ Tamales Sale starts now. Sign-up sheets for tamales are in the back of church. The cost is $17 for 2 ½ dozen, or $7 for a dozen. Orders will be taken through December 8. You can also call Justin Bochat (830-598-4932), Homer Ahr (830-598-2991), Joe Wilkens (830-265-8224), or Mike Dewan (469-323-1230) for details. The orders will be delivered at church the weekend of December 13-14. Proceeds are used for the charitable works of the Knights. Thank you for your support and Happy Thanksgiving from the Knights.
Every year, our parish gives Christmas baskets of clothing toys, and food gift certificates to families unable to provide Christmas gifts for their children. The names of these families are obtained from local help organizations. This weekend, November 22 & 23, our Christmas Basket Committee will make the gift requests available. If you would like to make a child’s Christmas a little merrier, please complete your shopping and return your contributions no later than the weekend of December 6 & 7.
