Image result for jesse tree

Our Jesse Tree will be in the entrance of the Church beginning this weekend November 28 & 29. (Jesse is the father of King David and ancestor of Jesus Christ. Read Isaiah 11:1). The line of Jesse gave humankind the Greatest Gift – Jesus. The cards on our Jesse Tree represent our brothers and sisters in Christ who are in need this Christmas. 

Please take a gift card or two on the tree, return the requested (wrapped) gifts and place under the tree no later than the Third Sunday of Advent, December 13, 2015. Giving is a reflection of our love for each other, which, in turn, is a reflection of Jesus’ love for us. Thank you for sharing Christ’s love.

ARCHDIOCESAN PILGRIMAGE SITES

“This Holy Year will bring to the fore the richness of Jesus’ mission echoed in the words of the prophet: to bring a word and gesture of consolation to the poor, to proclaim liberty to those bound by new forms of slavery in modern society, to restore sight to those who can see no more because they are caught up in themselves, to restore dignity to all those from whom is has been robbed” (Misericordiae vultus, 16)

In accord with Misericordiae vultus, the Bull of Indiction of the Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy, paragraph 3, promulgated by His Holiness to inaugurate this Holy Year of Mercy, Daniel Cardinal DiNardo decrees that a Holy Door be opened at the following churches, which will serve also as pilgrimage sites during the Holy Year:

  •   St. Mary’s Cathedral Basilica (Galveston, TX)
