JOIN FATHER SCOTT ON HIS PILGRIMAGE IN THE COMFORT OF YOUR HOME

Pilgrimage to the Holy Land
On Monday Fr. Santos Castillo and I along with 43 other pilgrims, some from our own parish, will be departing for the Holy Land. Please keep us in prayer as we travel to the Holy sites of the Bible, and the Land where Jesus ministered to the world for all time. I will be keeping you in prayer as well. Nothing is ever guaranteed regarding my ability to connect to the internet while oversees. Still, I hope that it will be possible for me to create an At Home Pilgrimage Site for all of you to visit so you can virtually join me on this Pilgrimage. Check out the website www.VisitationCatholicChurch.com. (Please note that this is a different address then our main parish website.) I am hopeful that I will be able to upload stories, prayers, and photos from our journey.
 God bless,
 Fr. Scott Huggins

OUR SHARING TREES
Our Sharing Trees will be up this coming weekend. If you wish to participate please take an ornament from one of the trees at the entrances to church. On the ornament will be the name and a suggested gift for that person. (Suggested minimum amount is $30.) All wrapped gifts need to be returned at any of the Masses on the weekend of December 5 and 6. All gifts need to be in by the start of the noon Mass. Helpful Hint: Take a picture of your ornament when you take it off the tree. You’ll have the information handy when you go shopping and/or you misplace the ornament! Any questions, please contact: monicaspatafore@gmail.com or 630 834-6700 x 212
