Service Update

GIVING TREE - November 23 through December 11: Transfiguration School has partnered with the St. Vincent de Paul Society to help provide gifts to needy children in our area. Our Giving Tree will hold 50 tags for St. Simon Stock - St. Joseph Church in the Bronx. You will notice that the children ask for clothing items, and you can find their name and sizing information on the tag. If shopping is not for you, please know that gift cards to stores like Old Navy, Target, Visa, etc., are equally appreciated!

Gift Drop Off Dates: Saturday,12/05 9:00am-2:00pm at the Christmas Tree Sale OR Friday, 12/11 at Transfiguration School. This will allow us time to account for all the gifts and return to the Church prior to pick-up.

If you have any questions, please contact Gina Mueller, or 914-500-3732.

November 29th- 1st Sunday of Advent

This Sunday, December 29th, marks the first Sunday of Advent. Advent is one of my favorite seasons in the Church and is often overlooked as Christmas has become more secular.

In the Catholic Church, Advent is a period of preparation during the four Sundays before Christmas. The word Advent comes from the Latin advenio, "to come to," and refers to the coming of Christ. There are many wonderful rituals surrounding Advent. I have attached an Advent calendar for next week with some daily reminders, activities and prayers to do with your children .
