On the 3rd Sunday of Advent, children and their families traditionally gather in St. Peter’s Square for a special papal blessing of the Christ Child, “Bambinelli,” figure from their nativity scene and we carried on that tradition last weekend at all Masses. For those not yet coming to Mass, we wanted to be sure you could participate so hold up your Bambinelli and watch the video of Fr. Mike as he blesses your figurine. Also, some of your fellow parishioners wanted to say “hello!” We hope you enjoy these videos and are counting the days when we can all gather together for worship once again. In the meantime, stay safe, stay well, wear your masks and call upon the Lord for strength and courage as we wait in these final says of Advent for the coming of our Lord Jesus, who is the Light of the world.
