December's Pope’s Intention:
For volunteer not-for-profit organizations
We pray that volunteer not-for-profit organizations committed to human development find people dedicated to the common good and ceaselessly seek out new paths to international cooperation.

The spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him: a spirit of wisdom and of understanding, a spirit of counsel and of strength, a spirit of knowledge and of fear of the Lord.

Our Angel Tree Project will kick off this weekend, December 3rd and 4th. This is your opportunity to prayerfully consider how you can bless the less fortunate during this blessed Christmas season. Angels are available on the tree in the narthex. Stapled to each angel is an envelope. We are not asking that you go shopping to purchase gifts, but rather that you take an angel, place what you can give in the envelope, and drop it in the collection basket. We have already been receiving requests for help at Christmas. These requests are being forwarded to St. Mary's, so your donation will help the needy who approach us, and those same people will be assisted in many ways at a gathering on December 20th.  Many churches in the community, along with the Walker Area Community Foundation and the Department of Human Resources, are joining forces to provide a wonderful Christmas to those in need. St. Cecilia is very excited to be part of helping those in need in our community.
St. Mary’s is expecting to help over 700 families get food and probably toys for about 600-700 children.
If you are interested in volunteering, please call the church at 205-387-7746 and talk to Janet, the church secretary, or Dalton Maddox. 

May you be blessed for your consideration and your generosity.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to decorate the church so we can enjoy it this holiday season.
