Advent is moving along fairly quickly, as it usually does.  In the twinkling of an eye, Christmas will be here.  Thankfully for all of us, it is not here yet!
We still have two plus weeks of Advent ahead of us.  So there is still time to get ready to welcome Jesus.  One of the best ways to prepare for Christmas is to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  In addition to regular confessions every Saturday both after the 8:30AM morning Mass and at 3PM in St. Ann Church, we have the Advent Penance Service which will be held this coming week on Thursday, December 13th at 7PM also in the Church of St. Ann.  There will be several additional priests to assist with confessions.  Come to confession and experience the joy and peace of God’s forgiveness.
Next weekend at all the Masses, the Oplatki, the Christmas wafers will be distributed.  I invite you to take a pack to use at either your Christmas Eve or Christmas Day dinner, whichever is your main meal.  This is a wonderful tradition which reminds us to be thankful for God’s many blessings to us.  Happy Advent!

Have a Great Bethany Beach Week!
