Missalettes and Advent Stars

November 28, 2017: Six Brother Knights helped out as Fr Capone directed a replacement of all missalettes in the pews of the upper church. A large number of confirmation students helped out as well. Following that, we posted Advent Stars. Father Capone let us know that Joe, the facilities manager, had found the help to get up the creche lights on the corner of East and West Fellsway. Only Father Sullivan, our Chaplain is missing from the picture. He was there working with us.
