It's that time of year again. The annual Mountainside Nursing Home Christmas project has started!! - Please look for the wreath at the back of the church. Choose a star representing a nursing home resident. Each star will tell you whether the resident is male or female as well as 3 gift suggestions. Please purchase as many of the suggested gifts as you like, wrap the gift, attach the star to it and return it to the back of church on or before the weekend of Dec. 14/15. The gifts will be delivered to Mountainside in time to be distributed at their holiday party. Thank you for helping to brighten the holidays for someone special!

Feast Of Our Lady of Guadalupe
Next Sunday, December 8th, we will begin our celebration of the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe with Mass in Spanish at 4 p.m. with a mariachi band leading us in songs to Our Blessed Mother. Following Mass, the celebration will continue in the Parish Center with more music from the mariachi band, food, and Mexican folk dances.
All are welcome.
We have almost 300 families registered in Sacred Heart Parish.
If each family brought just one item to Mass each week for our local Community Pantry, we could bring much comfort to the less fortunate among us. Among the most needed items are: paper products (napkins, toilet paper, paper towels), macaroni and cheese, canned stews, Chunky soups, canned meat and fish and peanut butter and jelly. Please drop your donations off in the box at the back of church.
Donations made on the first weekend of each month will be brought to the Roxbury Food Pantry. Thank you for your generosity in caring for all God's people.
Anyone interested in becoming a member of the church decorating committee, please call Pat Tucker
QUESTION and ANSWER CORNER
Why do we make changes in the Mass? Some seem so small and unimportant. Are they really necessary?
The celebration of the Eucharist is at the heart of our identity as Catholics. Our purpose as a church community revolves around the Eucharist. Everything we are and everything we do is measured not only by how well we celebrate, but also by how well we live the sacrament. If that is so, then we as a community will always strive to celebrate the Mass as best we can. The reasons for some changes might seem more obvious than others, but there is a reason behind each one.
The "Roman Missal, Third Edition," was released in Latin in 2002. This version added numerous prayers, making it a richer source for the liturgy. Since work had already begun on translating the second edition, it was decided by the US bishops to simply jump ahead to the third edition. Its use began with the Advent season in 2011. The additional prayers honor new saints, while other prayers reach back into the ancient tradition of the church.
With the new translation, we have the opportunity to better learn and understand each part of the Mass, "which in turn should help us deepen our appreciation for its beauty and meaning. We will be a better church if we have a clearer understanding and knowledge of who and what we celebrate.
