Readings: Isaiah 35:1-6, 10; James 5:7-10; Matthew 11:2-11
The community Mass will be celebrated at 11:00 AM in the Chapter Room, Fr. Vincent Collins presiding and preaching. As the Third of Four Sundays of Advent, it is known as “Gaudate” Sunday from the Introit of the day: Rejoice in the Lord always; again I say, rejoice. Indeed, the Lord is near. As such, there is a break in the penitential character of Advent because we are closer to celebrating the anticipated Solemnity of the Lord’s coming among us.
