Infancy Narratives of JesusDo you want to prepare yourself spiritually for Christmas this year?  Did you know that the stories connected with the birth of Jesus are found in only two of the four Gospels?  Did you know that the stories connected with the birth of Jesus are later, rather than earlier, additions to the Gospels as we have them?  Did you know that the stories connected with the birth of Jesus, though entailing only a small section of the Gospels of Matthew and Luke, are in fact the entire Gospel story in miniature?

We invite you to delve more deeply into the infancy narratives of Jesus by joing us at Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church for a four-week study of these fascinating and revealing stories starting the week of November 24-26 with the following options:

Mondays 9:45 a.m.
Tuesdays 9:45 a.m.
Wednesdays 6:00 p.m.

Meet inthe classroom section of the church after entering the bulding from our small, side parking lot.  People of all faith traditions are invited to join us.  The cost of materials is $13.  Please sign-up in the narthex.  A Bible will be needed, both in the class and in preparation for each session;  the last of which will be December 17.

Six Month Unborn BabyThis month continues to be a period of rapid growth for your baby.  At 24 weeks, he can suck his thumb and hiccup, and his brain is developing rapidly. Fatty sheaths which transmit electrical impulses along nerves are forming.

If your baby is a girl, she will develop eggs in her ovaries during the month. Bones are becoming solid, and your baby is almost fully formed.  At her growth level, she cannot usually live outside the uterus without specialized care.

By the end of the sixth month, your baby will have grown to be 11 to 14 inches long and will weigh about one to one and one-half pounds.  Please continue to pray for this special child of God.

helpinghandsHelping Hands is in need of drivers to transport parishioners to ALL weekend Masses.  We particularly need those who regularly attend Mass on Saturday evening to consider offering rides to those who are no longer able to drive themselves. Many of our requests come from long time parishioners who live nearer to the west end or center of the Village, and who feel more able later in the day.  If you can give someone a most welcome opportunity to attend Mass by driving him/her on a regular basis, please call Helping Hands Coordinators Cathy Wedwick (915-8456) or Pat Widlowski (922-1395).
