This week we celebrate Our Lady of Guadalupe with a procession and Spanish Mass followed by a light reception. The Preschool puts on their special Las Posadas on Wednesday and then Msgr. Al treats us to his advent retreat.
I get asked often “when is the special needs Mass for Christmas?”. The short answer is that there is no special needs Mass for Christmas. The long answer is why. The special needs Mass for Easter is because the morning Masses all fill up and may be harder to access for some of our parishioners who also can not attend the late vigil. Christmas is reversed: the evening Masses are full but the morning Masses allow for easy attendance.
Please consider supporting Catholic education. Many of you have been supporters of the Catholic Tuition Support Organization (CTSO). This enables so many to participate in a Catholic Education. The amount of the tax credit this year is $1089 (single)/$2177(couple). Info can be found at the CTSO website (www.ctso-tucson.org). If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me (email@example.com or 577-8780, ext. 115).
