"The grace and peace of our Lord be with you." Each time we gather for Mass, we hear these words. We, the parishioners, staff and clergy pray that you always find this peace and blessing in our midst.

Among the Church's many treasures is the sacrament of the sick. We celebrate this sacrament to bring the power of God's Spirit to bear on sickness. Sometimes the recipient experiences physical healing. Always the Spirit gives the sick person strength to bear the burden of his/her illness. When I visit the sick in the hospital or take Communion to parish shut-ins, I frequently celebrate the sacrament of the sick with them; but here at Our Lady of Peace we also have the tradition of celebrating the sacrament communally at a Sunday Mass. This Advent, on Sunday, December 7th, at the 11:30 Mass, the parish will be celebrating the sacrament of the sick. The sacrament is available to anyone who is seriously ill and also to anyone who though not seriously ill, is at rick of serious illness because of physical weakness or advanced age or something similar. If you wish to receive the sacrament of the sick, please plan to participate in this celebration. For parishioners with mobility problems we will be reserving a special area where the choir normally sits---the priest will anoint people there in their places so they do not have to come forward. During Advent we await the arrival of the Messiah who comes to set us free---free, among other things, from sickness. Advent is therefore a most appropriate time for this special celebration. I hope we have lots of participants. Fr. John
