DDD: This year our parish goal is $85,000. We are short $3,000 from our goal. $2,000 has been pledged and not paid for a shortfall of $5,000. If you have made a pledge please fulfill you commitment to the Diocese and pay it by Dec. 29th, if you have not donated to the DDD please do so. If Holy Family does not meet the goal of $85,000 by Dec. 29th the difference has to be paid with parish funds.

Sunday Dec. 17th 3:00 p.m. Sotto Voce. Utah’s premier vocal quartet will present an exciting concert of Christmas music in a variety of styles form diversity of traditions.

Parish Advent Confessions: Confession's will be heard this Wednesday from 6:30-8:00 p.m. at Holy Family. Confessions are also heard on Saturdays form 3:30-4:30 p.m. or by appointment.

Advent Benediction: This year on Sunday evenings of Advent we will celebrate a Eucharistic holy hour and Benediction. The celebration of Eucharistic devotion will begin with exposition of the Blessed sacrament at 6:00 p.m. followed by some quiet time for prayer and ending with Benediction at 6:50 p.m. This hour of quiet prayer is a wonderful opportunity to enter into the peace of the Advent season. The next Eucharistic Holy Hour and Benediction will be Sunday Dec. 17th, at 6:00 p.m.

Parish Safe Environment Concern: It has come to our attention that parents are letting their young children (those 10 years and younger) go to the restrooms during Mass without adult supervision. Due to the number of adult visitors to the Church it is impossible for us to guarantee the safety of children in the restrooms if a parent or guardian is not with them in the Church or restroom. Parents, grandparents and guardians: Please do not allow younger children to go to the restrooms or any where in the Church building or Social Hall without adult supervision.

Christmas Flower Donations: Use the envelopes in the pews. Write the names legibly, and return to the collection basket by Dec 18th if you wish to have it published in the Christmas bulletin. This is the last weekend

Stewardship, What does the Bible say about Giving? Give Liberally. “He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sow bountifully will also reap bountifully.” (II Corinthians 16:2)

Adoration: “You must hold fast to faith, be firmly grounded and steadfast in it, unshaken in the hope promised you by the gospel you have heard.” (Col 1:23) The gospel is an inexhaustible source of hope for us. Its message portrays God’s infinite love for us a love the counts every hair on our head, a love that fulfills all his promises. Can there be any greater source of hope than this?
