Announcements for the week: 2nd Sunday of Advent

Merry Christmas to the parishioners of Our Lady of Lourdes Chapel and all Traditional Catholics near and far.

A special thank you to Fr. Casimir Puskorius for coming to celebrate Mass at the Chapels in Fontana and San Diego in Fr. Gerard's absence.

On the Mondays when Fr. Gerard is present, he generally celebrates Mass at 8:00A.M. All are welcome to attend.

Congratulations to Father Bernard Welp, CMRI and Father Alexander Kryssov who were ordained this past October by the Most Rev. Bishop Pivarunas. May God guide them and protect them as they now carry with them Christ's command to teach all nations and baptizing in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost.

Please pray for Fr. Julian Gilchrist. His attempts to obtain permanent residency in the United States failed and earlier in the month of April he had no choice but to return to New Zealand. Anyone who wishes to send condolences to him, you may contact him using these following addresses:
104 Anzac Road,
Whangarei, New Zealand
or by e-mail:
Pray for vocations to the priesthood. Let us pray also for the people of New Zealand so that the presence of Fr. Gilchrist will bring more converts to the True Faith.
