Dear Friends,

"Let every heart prepare him room!"  This line from the Christmas Carol, "Joy to the World," is a reminder to us in the Season of Advent of how we should live Advent as a watchful people, anticipating the coming of the Lord in History (past), Mystery (present) and Majesty (future).

In last week's bulletin, I stated that there will be many opportunities provided for you to come to Confession, to encounter Jesus in this gift of mercy.  By seeking the forgiveness of God, we prepare our hearts to make room for the newborn King.  The young people in our Religious Education Classes, (Grades 3-12), are receiving this sacrament on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings during their class times.  The Sacrament of Reconciliation will be available:

  • Every weekday morning at 7:30am before the 8:00am daily Mass here at St. John the Evangelist, Clonmel
  • Saturdays from 4:30pm-5:25pm at St. John the Evangelist, Clonmel
  • Sunday, December 17 at 2:00pm at St. Cecilia, Haysville*
  • Sunday, December 17 at 4:00pm at St. Joseph, Conway Springs*
  • Sunday, December 17 at 7:00pm at St. Anthony, Wellington*
  • Monday, December 18 at 7:00pm at St. John the Evangelist, Clonmel
  • Tuesday, December 19 at 7:00pm at St. John the Evangelist, Clonmel
  • Wednesday, December 20 at 7:00pm at St. John the Evangelist, Clonmel*

Prepare your heart in this Advent Season to make room for Emmanuel - "God is with us."

In Christ's Service,

Fr. John
