THE OFFERINGS OF ISAAC PRAYER JOURNAL

Father Scharbach has shared some prayer journal entries from his son Isaac (who tragically passed in August 2020) and has received requests to read more. He has been sharing a brief weekly prayer journal entry for those who sign up here. Like reading the psalms in prose, the journal covers every range of human emotion through the lens of faith. Reading it can inspire growth in holiness.

Second Sunday of Advent

We will have an 8am Spoken Mass and the 10am Sung Mass sung. The live streamed 10am Mass will be available on our YouTube channel. The bulletin to accompany the Mass in PDF format is available in the YouTube description.

Since Baltimore City is once again limiting Mass attendance, we're providing a signup. It's not necessary for you to sign up ahead of time in order to attend Mass--this just ensures that those who sign up have a place in the event that the church becomes too full. However, we haven't yet had attendance exceed allowable limits because the safe capacity of the worship space is much greater than the size of our pews. As always during the pandemic, we ask everyone over 2 years of age to wear masks and that families to maintain a safe distance of 6 feet from each other at all times.

Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, Tuesday, December 8th at 5:00 pm

This is a holy day of obligation in the United States, which I always like to call a Holy Day of Opportunity. This is an opportunity to celebrate a feast with a greater intentionality.

Advent Quiet Day: Saturday, December 12th from 8 am to 1 pm

Let the busy world be hushed. This is your chance to truly enter into Advent, which is rightly a season of preparation, not celebration. Confessions. Mass. Two teachings. Quiet time for prayer. The theme for this year will be an Advent poem from St. John of the Cross, which we'll consider in front of his relic in our high altar.

The day begins with Mass at 9, followed by a light breakfast (provided). Then we stop talking, and the silence helps us to hear God. You can read, pray, walk, reflect, or go to Confession. The day ends with Adoration and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. You can sign up here, and you're welcome to invite others.

Troops of St George

Our local troop of the Troops of St George meets on the 2nd Monday of each month. Troops of St George is a great chance for Dads and their sons to grow in their faith together as well as enjoy the outdoors and learn life skills and virtues. Learn more at troopsofsaintgeorge.org and contact our Troop Captain Mr. Josh Crain if you would like to join or help.

Lessons and Carols -- Sunday, December 20th at 4 pm

This Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols has become broadly embraced in the Catholic Church, yet we're blessed to have a closer connection to its Anglican roots. Next to the Easter Vigil, this is your only opportunity each year to experience an overview of the entire span of redemption history in one service. Since there are challenges in having a full choir during Covid (due to the mask requirements) we're designing a service with string accompaniment and more participation from attendees. We'll anticipate Christmas-around-the-corner with a festive reception outdoors.
