“Be an Advent People”

What a challenge it is to be an Advent People in the midst of the greed and consumerism of our contemporary society, especially during this time of the year when we are inundated with commercials, ads, flyers, and emails trying to get us to spend, spend, spend. Given at Holy Family Parish on December 8th, 2013 at the monthly “SS5” Mass (Second sunday at 5PM), this homily, in light of the Gospel reading about John the Baptist, gives some concrete ideas and challenges on how we can remain an Advent People during this time of the year.

“Be An Advent People”:

This Homily was given at Holy Family Catholic Church, 3450 Sycamore Dr., Stow Ohio, where I serve as a Permanent Deacon. If you are traveling through our area, or live nearby and don’t have a church home, please stop in and join us. Weekend Masses are at 5:00PM on Saturday, 7:30AM, 9:30AM, and 11:30AM every Sunday. We also have a 5:00PM Sunday Mass on the second Sunday of each month that is geared towards our teenage members but all are welcome. More information on our parish, our K-8 Blue Ribbon school, and our over 70 ministries and activities can be found at The Holy Family website.
