Weekly Liturgy help
Click here to access a weekly liturgy aid with the Gloria and the Creed as well as a link to the readings. Since we are not using missalettes at this time, this can be a helpful tool to better participate in the liturgy.

Prayer for Renewal
Over the next several months, we are asking our parishioners to pray for renewal in our parish. This doesn't mean that there is a crisis or that things are falling apart! It simply means that we should always be asking the Lord to guide us down the road that He sets before us.
From now until Christmas we will be asking the Lord to bring renewal through hospitality. We invite you to pray the prayer below, asking God to help us grow as a parish by embracing the people He sends us.
We are very excited to offer to our parishioners a free subscription to the online resource called Formed. You can think of it as Netflix for Catholics, but it has so much more than movies! Click here to learn more.
There's a brilliant series called The Search that I encourage you to watch and share with friends.
November 25 Weekly Announcements from Fr. Alex
Just a reminder that our Thanksgiving Mass will be at 9:00 am tomorrow at Christ the King. It will also be livestreamed if you are concerned about being around others.
Next Tuesday, December 1st, there will NOT be an 8:30 am daily Mass. I will be away that day, but the rest of the week will be the normal daily Mass schedule.
This Sunday is the first Sunday of Advent, which is the beginning of the new liturgical year for us. It also means that we will be swapping out our missalettes this weekend. You can leave your old one at home and keep it in a vacuum-sealed shadow box as a memento of 2020 and we will have new books for you to pick up.
We do still have adoration this evening from 5:30-6:30 pm. After you read this message, I invite you to pray the Hail Mary one time for those in despair. The holidays are tough for many people, so let’s ask our Lady to stay with them during these days.
Dispensation from Sunday & holy day Mass Obligation Extended Indefinitely
The Indiana bishops have decided to extend the dispensation from the obligation of Sunday and holy day Mass attendance until further notice, due to the increase in COVID-19 cases in our state.
M-F 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
