3. The Advent fast is an ideal time to come for confession. Please schedule a confession with Fr. Richard. If you go to confession with
    another priest, please inform Fr. Richard of this. If you need some help preparing for confession, please see Fr. Richard. Preparation
    sheets are available downstairs.

4. A big thanks to all who participated in our community bottle drive yesterday. We are also especially grateful to all those who
    contributed in various ways to our two fund raisers this fall. Through God's grace and your efforts, we were able to raise
    approximately $950 towards the cost of our church temple repairs and Church school.

6. A celebration of St. Nicholas Day for the children of our community on Saturday, December 6th. If you are interested in helping
    with this event, please speak to Presbytera Jaime.

7. Fr. Richard is encouraging members of Saint Aidan's to pick the name of another family in the community, to pray especially for that
    family on a daily basis, and to consider ways to make social contact with that family during the week, outside of Sunday fellowship.
    If you have not had the opportunity to select a family, please contact Fr. Richard, and he will pick a name (randomly) for you.
