December 9, 2018 – 2nd Sunday of Advent
“And this is my prayer: that your love may increase ever more and more in knowledge and every kind of perception, to discern what is of value…”
(PHILIPPIANS 1:9-10) Glittery holiday ads can blind us to our stewardship values and distort our needs and wants. It is important that during this season of endless buying we remember that each of us also has the need to give back to God and to those who are in need.
Experience God in a personal and real way. SEARCH for Christian Maturity has a retreat coming up January 11-13, 2019 at Maryvale Convent in Valley City, ND. Youth and young adults, 16 and older are invited to attend. Details and application at http://www.fargodiocese-

The orientation includes introductions to:Liturgy of the Hours, Lectio Divina (traditional Benedictine practice of scriptural reading, meditation, and prayer), Sacred Heart Monastery's sponsorship relationship with Avera and Mount Marty College, and the history of the Yankton Benedictines. After the first week, the volunteer enters into the Benedictine balance of Ora et Labora - Pray and Work. Spiritual Direction is available upon request.

Emergency Food Pantry Seeking Volunteers
The Emergency Food Pantry has a great need for more volunteers! There are lots of different opportunities to help, regardless of age or physical limitations. Volunteers are welcome Monday – Friday from 8am – noon and 1pm - 4pm.
If you can’t volunteer your time, another way to help is through donations! Some commonly needed items are canned tuna, canned fruit, peanut butter, and milk. We are always in need of hygiene products, baby items (such as food, formula, diapers), and household items (such as detergents and cleaning products.)
With your support we provide individuals and families in need with one week’s supply of healthy food. We couldn’t do it without you!
If you would like to visit us and learn more about volunteering please call 701-237-9337.
