Good Friday Morning!

– Hope you all are enjoying the snow this morning.  We have a lot of information to share today that covers the next 10 days or so: 
– Today, Friday November 18, Bishop Walsh has asked all of us to participate in a Day of Fasting and Prayer to combat the passing of Proposal 3 in last week’s election. He encourages us to attend daily Mass, say a rosary, fast and pray for the conversion of the hearts and souls of those who see abortion as a right for women or a solution to an unplanned pregnancy.
– Today we will celebrate daily Mass at 8:30am and then offer Adoration and confession from 12-1 (no Holy Hour & Divine Mercy Chaplet today due to the storm warning). Please join us if you are able!
– There is a funeral and luncheon for Joe Carroll on Saturday at 11am. If you can help with the luncheon, please sign up here. 
– Charlevoix Cinema III is showing “Mother Theresa: No Greater Love” this weekend (Friday – Monday). Showtimes are: Friday, Saturday, Sunday 3:15pm and 7pm; and Monday at 7pm. 
– Our “Advent Events” calendar will be in the bulletin this weekend. Please “save the date” for the many fun & family friendly activities we have planned for December!
