“For I was hungry and you gave me food”
Did you remember the invitation last week to continue to support the hungry on a more continuous basis? We are challenged to bring 1 non-perishable food item to Mass every weekend which will be sent to the foodbanks. Donations can be left at the back of the church and will be delivered to St. Willibrord’s parish food bank. To help you, there is a list of suggestions for nutritious non-perishable items at the back of the church; it is also posted below, and you can download the list by clicking the button
Sunday Missals 2019
The Living With Christ Sunday Mass books for the coming Liturgical Year are available for sale at the back of the church. The cost is $5 each. As we have a limited supply, you are encouraged to purchase your copy as soon as possible and to write your name in your book.
A Note From our Accountant
For the persons with envelope numbers 177, 59 & 212: we thank you for your donation, but request that you please write your name & address on your envelope so that we can send you your tax receipt at the end of the year. Thanks. God Bless You!
Multiple Chemical Sensitivity
Exposure to scented products such as perfume and cologne can aggravate health problems for some people. In our parish we have a number of parishioners who are extremely sensitive to scented products to the point that they are not able to attend Mass or must leave the church before the end of Mass. We ask you to be thoughtful of the needs of these members of our parish community and invite you to refrain from wearing these artificially scented products at Mass. Thank You! Your thoughtfulness and assistance is greatly appreciated.
Printed Psalm Sheets
This is the final weekend that the printed version of the Psalms which we use each Sunday will be available. For those who would like a print copy you may go the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops website to download a copy. The web address is:
Ascension Choir Christmas Concert
Save the Date! Our Choir Christmas Concert will take place on Sunday, December 2nd, at 3:00pm in the church.

Our Mass Setting
Our choir sings the Mass of St. Frances Cabrini Mass Setting by Kevin Keil. It is simple and should be easy for all to join in. However, for those who would like to accelerate their learning, a choral version of the Mass is available on Youtube:
Mass of St. Frances Cabrini Mass Setting by Kevin Keil.
The parts that we are singing include:
