Welcome to St. Wendelin Parish

Dear Parishioners and Friends,
On the First Sunday of Advent this year, we hear these
encouraging words from Saint Paul:


I give thanks to my God always on your account for the
grace of God bestowed on you in Christ Jesus, that in him
you were enriched in every way, with all discourse and all
knowledge, as the testimony to Christ was confirmed
among you, so that you are not lacking in any spiritual
gift as you wait for the revelation of our Lord Jesus
Christ. He will keep you firm to the end, irreproachable on
the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful, and by
him you were called to fellowship with his Son,
Jesus Christ our Lord.
(1 Corinthians 1, 4-9)

We celebrate the Advent and Christmas seasons to remember that
God has come to earth to dwell with us, and so we respond in
gratitude and in generous giving to one another. May these days
unite our families, our parish community, our neighborhoods and
our world. May God heal our brokenness and our sinfulness, and
shine a bright light on goodness and mercy!
Peace to all in these shining days…


Fr. Robert J. Kropac
