Happy New Year! This weekend Cycle A of our liturgical year starts anew! Our Gospel urges us to "stay awake" and to "throw off darkness. Look for these themes in music selections. "O Come Emmanuel", "Longing for Light", "Awake O Sleeper". We have RCIA Rite of Acceptance at the Saturday evening Mass with catechumens beginning their year of study under Dr. Christine Myers. They'll join us for Communion at the Easter Vigil. And we have our Tintinnabulator Handbell Choir under the wonderful direction of Dr. Robin Hill at the Sunday evening Mass ringing us into our new Liturgical Year!
