Sunday’s Readings: December 10, 2023, Advent 2, Year B

Isaiah 40.1-11; Psalm 85.1-2, 8-13; 2 Peter 3.8-15; Mark 1.1-8        


For many years Grace Parish has been supporting St. Vincent de Paul. We have participated in Soup Bus on the third Sunday of the month for ever.  For several years we have made St. Vincent de Paul our special Advent donation recipient. This year we will continue our support by collecting the food that they need the most.

The Fourth Sunday in Advent is Christmas Eve and will be too late to send food to them with hampers, so we have combined the fourth Sunday into the other weeks.

Advent 1 – Dec 3 – Sugar Sunday - Bags or cubes or Cheese & Crackers

Advent 2 – Dec 10 – Dry Cereal Sunday - Or Granola Bars

Advent 3 – Dec 17 – Dessert Sunday - Canned Fruit or fruit cups

Please consider adding these special donation items to your Advent almsgiving.
