Thoughts from Sr. Lucette

Preparation! This one word describes the journey that Advent is for the Church.  John the Baptist prepared the way for Jesus’ First Coming.  We are called to prepare for the Second Coming of our Lord.  How are we preparing for the Lord to make inroads into our lives, into our hearts? What obstacles has our selfishness and pride placed in the way and how can we remove them?  For what do we need forgiveness and what repentance can we make?  What concrete action can I take this week to prepare myself for Jesus’ coming?
  In order to ready our hearts for Jesus’ coming, we will have a Parish Advent Penance Service on Monday, December 14th at 7:00 pm.  There will be 4 priests available to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation with us.  Hope to see you there.
 There is much to think about during this critical time of Covid-19.  
If we are in the “Red Zone” in Erie County, there will be no Mass at Blessed Sacrament.  However, for a list of parish Masses livestream, check out  If you do not have a computer, go to Channel 4 at 11:00 am for Sunday Mass at Our Lady of Victory Basilica.
                        Stay safe and well. Remember: “Jesus, I trust in you.”
