Message From The Pastor

Fr. Michael HermesHappy Advent!

The secret to having the best Christmas ever is probably having a really good Advent Season:  daily prayer, a Work of Mercy or two, a good Confession, and a personal reflection on this:  “In this way the love of God was revealed to us: God sent his only Son into the world so that we might have life through him (1 John 4:9).

The Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception is celebrated on Dec. 8th with a special Mass schedule.  Mary, under this title, is the patroness of the United States.  We can ask for her intercession during this time of presidential transition in Washington DC.

Our Lady of Guadalupe will be celebrated on Sunday night, Dec. 11th, beginning with a procession from the Santa Barbara Trailer Park on Ridgeview all the way to St. Paul Church.  Mass begins at 9 p.m., followed by the Matachines native dancing and the singing of Las Mañanitas.   We thank the Olathe Police Department for providing the official escort for the procession.

Advent Confessions are scheduled to take place on Thursday, Dec. 15th at 7 p.m. with 15 visiting priests.  Although not a rule, a good Confession during Advent is highly recommended as an excellent spiritual exercise in preparation for celebrating Christmas.

The Christmas Mass Schedule is posted on this website.  Please pick your Mass and come early as these Masses are more crowded than normal.  The parish will be giving out a special Christmas present at the end of all Masses. 

Finally, looking ahead to January 2017, we will offer an all-parish Bible Study of St. Paul’s Letter to the Galatians.  We note that St. Paul referred to Christmas in his letter where he wrote:  “But when the fullness of time had come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to ransom those under the law, so that we might receive adoption” (Gal. 4:4-5). 

Merry Christmas to all of you!
