A Few Words from Brother Silas

As a child my family always had an Advent wreath in the weeks before Christmas. Many times the wreaths were home made with branches cut from backyard trees and bushes. Many of us also had Advent calendars that delivered small daily gifts that reminded us that Christmas Day was near.  Right now when our homes are the primary base for prayers and devotions, Advent season seems a good time to reflect on our joys and sorrows. Maybe we can choose one special memory each day all through Advent.  That memory could bring us pleasure or sadness, but it will be a reflection of life, hope and love.

We look forward to Christmas with love and joy in our hearts. This year the Advent season starts on November 29. We prepare in order to be ready to welcome the Christ Child in our lives. There really is a true feeling of happiness as we anticipate the arrival of Christmas Day.   With prayer our Salvatorian family can envision the real hope that Christmas represents. Come and join us in prayers of Love, Joy and Hope this Holiday Season. Advent Prayer

With great joy 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 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!

Our Salvatorian Christmas Card assortment is available. Don't you enjoy sending cards that celebrate the Birth of Our Savior - the real "present" we receive on Christmas Day? Please call or contact the Salvatorians on the web, by mail or by calling us at 1-800-254-4902, if you would like the 2020 Christmas card set or a favorite card from the collection. We think that our Christmas Mass Remembrance would make a significant and meaningful gift -  especially this year - that will be welcome during the Holidays and lasts the entire year.

May God continue to fill you with love and joy.

Brother Silas

Don't forget - our November Masses paying special tribute to the Blessed Mother.
The Salvatorians will celebrate with a Novena of Masses in honor of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin beginning November 21.  Join us in celebrating the Novena of Masses from November 21 to November 29. 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. Remember too, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception is on Tuesday, December 8th. Please join us in prayer.

Think Through Your Options as You Make Your Year End Plans

As the end of a difficult year approaches, now may be an ideal time to consider your gift and estate plans. You may have new philanthropic goals in light of the health, social and economic challenges faced this year. There are ways to make tax-advantaged charitable gifts whether you itemize deductions or not.

Did you know there may be additional benefits available if you make your charitable gifts with cash this year? If you use the larger standard deduction, you can reduce your taxable income by up to $300 when you give cash to qualified charities. Or, if you itemize your deductions, normal limits are eliminated for gifts of cash up to 100% of adjusted gross income in 2020. If you have any questions or would like more information about charitable gift planning choices, please give us a call at 1-800-254-4902.

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. Continue to stay safe during these uncertain times - you'll be in our prayers.
