THANK YOU For Your Support of St. Charles Borromeo

FOURTH SUNDAY OF ADVENT When he discovered that Mary was with child, Joseph resolved to end their engagement with as little disgrace as possible. But obedient to the voice of God, he changed those plans and became instead the protector of the child Jesus and His mother Mary. God grant that I may be as open to the leading of the Holy Spirit!

FOURTH SUNDAY OF ADVENT ST. CHARLES VOCATION COMMITTEE

DECEMBER 22, 2013

Merry Christmas! from Amy, Lisa, RE Staff and students of the Religious Ed Classes of 2013.

Stop asking for a sign and become one. Consider becoming a Priest or Religious. (Isaiah 7.10-14) VOCATION CROSS PROGRAM Next weekend, December 29, Mike Freygang will take home the Vocation Cross. He will pray daily throughout the week for an increase in vocations. THANK YOU FOR YOUR DONATIONS TO THE ADVENT GIVING TREE St. Charles Conference St. Vincent de Paul Society THANK YOU to all parishioners who generously participated by taking an ornament from the Advent Giving Tree. The total amount received from certificates, gift cards and monetary contributions was $4,000.00, a 24 percent decrease from 2012. The funds were distributed to 23 families (99 individuals) which helped these families with their Christmas celebrations.

They had fun celebrating the season in their PJ’s and watching “The Legend of the Candy Cane” with a visit from Santa. “It is a good and holy thought to pray for the dead.” 2 Macabees:12

CATHOLIC CHARITIES’ CHRISTMAS APPEAL For some families, the spirit of Christmas is difficult to grasp because of the everyday challenges they are faced with in meeting their basic needs. As our Holy Father, Pope Francis said, “It is essential to draw near to new forms of poverty and vulnerability, in which we are called to recognize the suffering Christ, even if this appears to bring us no tangible and immediate benefits. I think of the homeless, the addicted, refugees, indigenous peoples, the elderly who are increasingly isolated and abandoned, and many others.” These are served by Catholic Charities every day. The need is growing, and it is through you that Catholic Charities exists to be the charitable arms of the Church through the agency’s programs and services. Catholic Charities’ mission is “to serve those in need as Christ would have us do.” As you go through this Christmas season, please consider making a financial contribution to help Catholic Charities continue to serve vulnerable populations that others may turn away. CHURCH CONTRIBUTIONS FOR 2013 Tuesday, December 31, 2013 is the deadline for receiving 2013 contributions to be credited to your 2013 record. Please place your contributions in the collection basket, or drop off any donations you wish credited for the year 2013 to the Parish Office before this deadline.

We extend our sympathy and prayers to the family and friends of James Hornak.
