Notes from Our Pastor

   The Giving Tree
Christmas trees filled with stars will be in the Church vestibules starting this weekend. Take a star, purchase the item printed on the star, wrap it as a Christmas present with the star taped on the outside of the present. Place gifts in the back of Church by the statue of Mary, or drop off at the Rectory Office. Gifts will be distributed to the needy for Christmas
by our St. Vincent de Paul Society.
              Turn-in deadline is December 8th.                  

Children's Liturgy
Dear Seven Holy Founders Community,
We would like to invite you to attend our Children's Liturgy of the Word. On the second Sunday of each month at 9am Mass, we invite young children (ages 2- 7) to participate in a lesson and activity about the Gospel. (We ask that at least one parent of 2 and 3 year olds attends with them). The priest will call up all children for a blessing before the First Reading, and children will return to their pews before the Offertory. At this time, Children's Liturgy will be held in the rectory.  For questions or concerns, please contact gailshf@aol.com  

NEW SERVER CLASS
We will conduct a class for new servers right
after New Year's Day. Anyone in 4th Grade
or older is eligible to join our program.
Adults interested in joining the program
to serve Masses for Sunday or the weekday Masses can be trained separately. Parents are also invited to join their children in serving. Contact Mike Panneri at 849- 5557 by December 10th for information or to join our program.

SHF Men’s Winter Retreat
This is a note for men other than those who were on retreat in June or are now involved with the upcoming Mens' ACTS Retreat. SHF's ladies had a King's House Retreat on November 8-10, 2019. Have you paused to think, to pray, to regain direction, … to relax? The parish sponsors two men’s retreats annually. The winter retreat is at the King’s House Retreat Center in Belleville, IL, for Friday evening's dinner through Sunday's lunch, January 17 to 19, 2020.
Do you have need for a relaxing week-end of
peace, quiet, good food, and spiritual nourishment? Take some time with your loving God on this retreat. The inexpensive,
quiet retreat has always had excellent talks,
food and facilities. Most retreatants miss no work to attend the entire session from Friday dinner to Sunday lunch, less than 48 hours.
Call Carl Gudiswitz, 849-1013, or Greg Hempen,
353-7638, for information or reservations and driving arrangements. We car pool to get there, if you would like a ride. Please call for a reservation, if you are even possibly
attending, ASAP or by Friday, December 20, 2019.
