SOLEMNITY OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION

Since December 8, 2019, is the Second Sunday of Advent, the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary is transferred to Monday, December 9. The obligation to attend Mass; however, does not transfer; thus, this is not a Holy Day of Obligation this year. However, Mass will be offered at St. Philomena on Monday, December 9, at 7:30am.

The St. Philomena & St. Michael Parish Council will meet on Wednesday, December 11, at 7:00pm in the St. Philomena Lounge.
 

SENIOR SOCIAL CLUB LUNCHEON

The Senior Club will hold their December Luncheon on December 12, at 12:30pm (Please note date and time change!). The meal will be catered so there is no need to bring a dish to share and there will be no charge. Because the meal is catered, we need to provide a headcount by December 9. There is still time to register, if you haven’t already, by calling Becky in the Parish Office. If you are a senior, please join us even if you have not attended previously!
