A Few Words from Fr. Gregory:

This year the Advent season starts on December 2. When we light the Advent candles it reminds us the Nativity is fast approaching.  It's the season of prayer, fasting, penitence and expectation.  We all like to prepare in order to be ready to welcome the Christ Child in our lives.  Taking time to reflect during Advent gives us all an excuse to contemplate the happiness we are awaiting on Christmas day.   We, the Salvatorian Fathers and Brothers, and you can take time to relax and reflect - spend time enjoying the hopefulness that the arrival of the Christ Child promises. Come and join us in prayers of Love and Joy and Hope this Holiday Season.

Before the first Sunday of Advent arrives, I just want to remind you of the Salvatorians' celebration of a Novena of Masses in honor of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary beginning November 21. Celebrating the Novena of Masses from November 21 to November 29, is a wonderful way for all of us to pray to our Blessed Mother.  To be sure you and your loved ones are remembered in the November Novena of Masses, send me your intentions by mail, online or by calling us at 1-800-254-4902.

Keep in mind that on Christmas Day the Salvatorians will begin a celebration of a Special Novena of Masses at our Motherhouse in Rome. We would love to remember you, your family and friends at those Masses.  To be assured your intentions are included in the Christmas Novena please contact me on the web, by mail or you may call us at 1-800-254-4902 before Christmas Eve. The gift of Our Savior's love is a Christmas present we can all share!

CHRISTMAS CARD ASSORTMENT

Please take a look at the Salvatorian Christmas Card assortment. I like to send cards that celebrate the Birth of Our Savior and the gift of His love - the real "present" we receive on Christmas Day.  Please call or contact the Salvatorians on the web, by mail or by calling 1-800-254-4902, if you would like us to send you the Christmas card assortment or a favorite card from the collection.  We think that our Christmas Mass Remembrance makes a significant and meaningful gift that is welcome during the Christmas season and truly is a gift that lasts the entire year.

May God continue to fill you with His love and joy.

Give This Year-End and Receive Tax Savings Next Year

Now is an ideal time to reevaluate your gift and estate plans considering the recent tax law changes. The charitable income tax deduction was preserved and there are still numerous smart ways to make tax advantaged charitable gifts whether you itemize deductions or not.

There are many different options to consider when planning your gifts so they are beneficial to you. You may find extra tax benefits available when you make gifts with assets other than cash, such as appreciated stocks, bonds or retirement plan distributions.

Thank you for supporting our organization throughout the year. Please know that we deeply appreciate every gift - and every donor. Do not hesitate to check with us if you have any questions about a gift you are considering.
