**Diocesan Ministry Appeal: Next Sunday is Commitment Sunday for the 2019 Diocesan Ministries Appeal. Watching the video today, we are reminded of the good work the DMA is doing in ministries too big for parishes to do alone, but ministries that are important
to us. Remember, in supporting the DMA, we contribute to those important ministries in the diocese, but we also support the project we have identifies for our parishes. As you reflect on what your pledge should be, prayerfully keep in mind God’s generosity to you. The DMA offers a great opportunity to make return to God of the blessings we have received. This year with the theme “Forward with Faith,” Bishop LeVoir invites us to recognize the ways that God continues working in our midst and to go forward with faith that God is still in with us in a powerful way. Be assured that contributions to the DMA will be used only for the benefit of the ministries designated in the brochure and no other purpose.
**DONATION ENVELOPES – This January when you pick up your donation envelopes you will maybe see a different number on
them. We will be redoing them to make it more streamlined again. Please after Jan 1 do not use your 2019 envelopes as they have
the wrong number.

**ADVENT PRAYER SERVICE
Sunday, December 8, 2019
Church of St. Mary in Bird Island, MN
All families, especially those with children, are invited to attend an Advent Prayer Service with Bishop John M. LeVoir on Sunday, December 8. The service is at 4:00 p.m. in Bird Island at the Church of St. Mary. This service is designed to help us focus on Advent and prepare for the true meaning of Christmas, centered on the birth of Jesus. Families are encouraged to bring the Baby Jesus figure from their home nativity set. The figure will be blessed by Bishop LeVoir individually as families come forward in procession. There will be a blessing on families and expectant mothers as they prepare for Jesus’ birth in their hearts. A “swaddling clothes” collection (blankets, sleepers, layette items, etc.) and cash donations will be taken for babies in need. For more information, contact the diocesan evangelization and catechesis office at 507-233-5325

Mahatma Gandhi often walked barefoot which produced an impressive set of callouses on his feet. He also ate very little, making him rather frail and with his odd diet he often suffered from bad breath. This made him a super calloused fragile mystic hexed with halitosis.
