Bulletin - Cathedral of Christ the King

December 21, 2014
fourth Sunday of advent
Dear Parishioners,
As we come to this last Sunday of
Advent, our excitement is peaking in
anticipation of the holiest day of the
year. We are ready to welcome the
many guests that come to visit our
Cathedral on Christmas. Our parish
home is decorated. Inside, the trees are
lit, and the poinsettias and roses are
hung. Outside the crèche proclaims the
coming of the Lord. “Prepare the way
2699 Peachtree Road, NE
Atlanta, Georgia 30305
for the Lord . . . And all mankind shall
see the salvation of God.” [Isaiah 40:3, Luke 3:6]
Please help me welcome all who will come to our parish home to
celebrate the birth of the newborn king on Christmas, and may this
holy time bring you the peace of silence, the joy of happiness and the
wonder of God’s presence among us.
Yours In Christ,

Around the Parish
The Advent Wreath
The Advent wreath, one of our most important Advent traditions, is
a circle, made of evergreen branches that has no beginning or end.
The circular shape of the Advent Wreath is used to symbolize God
the Father and eternal life.
The wreath holds four candles that are lit over the four weeks of Advent.
Traditionally, each of the four candles on an Advent wreath has their own
meaning. The lighting of the last purple candle of Advent symbolizes Peace,
reminding us of the message of the angels: “Peace on Earth, Good Will Toward
Parish Offices Closed
The Parish Offices at the Cathedral will be closed in
observance of Christmas from Tuesday, December 23
through Friday, December 26. The offices will reopen on Monday, December 29
and close again December 31 and January 1 so our staff may spend time with their
families. Sacramental emergency requests will be handled by the duty priest.
O Antiphons-Advent Evening Prayer
The “O Antiphons” refer to the seven antiphons that are recited (or chanted)
preceding the Magnificat during Vespers of the Liturgy of the Hours. They cover
the special period of Advent preparation known as the Octave before Christmas,
December 17-23. They will be held nightly in the D’Youville Chapel at 6 pm.
Vespers will also take place on Christmas Night at 7 pm in the Cathedral.

On Saturday, December 6, at 6:30 am approximately 100 fresh Fraser fir trees,
wreaths and garland arrived from the Horney Tree Farm in North Carolina.
The CKS Christmas tree sale is a fundraiser for the Parent Volunteer
Association. Volunteers and CTK maintenance unloaded the trees and families

fresh trees in the Cathedral Christmas decorations. The Cathedral donated a
beautiful 10-foot tree for the Christo Rey school to have on display during their
first Christmas!
Stewardship of Treasure
How shall I repay the Lord for his goodness to me?” Psalm 116
When he discovered that Mary was with child, Joseph resolved to end their engagement with
as little disgrace as possible. But obedient to the voice of God, he changed those plans and
became instead the protector of the child Jesus and his mother, Mary. God grant that I may
be as open to the leading of the Holy Spirit!
Second Collection for Christmas Eve/Christmas Day
The Christmas Eve and Christmas Day second collection will benefit Catholic
Charities Atlanta. Catholic Charities Atlanta is an advocate and friend for

wholeness. Their impact in our community is real and measurable. Last year they

Christmas Prayer
A Prayer for Christmas Eve/Christmas Day
I think about my family, my relatives, the neighbors, people with
whom we will spend this evening or this day. Dear Jesus, as I look
at their faces and remember their stories, there are feelings of
gratitude and some fear and anxiety. Thank you for these loved
ones and please forgive me for the ways I have been less than
accepting and loving. Please heal the wounds, division and
conflicts that stand between us and help me to remember how
dearly you love them. I only want to remember that you have
come to save us all.
Let me just for a moment, Lord, hold this time in my heart. It is
about mysteries and gratitude, unknowing and wrong sizes,
snippets of ribbon and screams of delight. With each gift that is
opened, no matter how perfect or not, let me feel again the many
ways you gift us each day, especially with your presence in our
hearts and the presence of each other in our lives. Amen.

Under the direction of our PE Teachers and with the help of

making a donation, the students donned bells and holiday hats as
they jogged around the Garden Hills Duck Pond, ringing the
Advent bells of hope, peace, joy and love for those who would
receive their gifts.

Joyous Toys

sponsored by the Buckhead Christian Ministry. They donated new toys to be given
to children in families who are going through difficult times this holiday season.
Many children will wake up to presents on Christmas morning thanks to Joyous
December Prayer
Every month Pope Francis announces
his monthly prayer intentions, and
requests that we include the
intentions in our personal prayers.
 Christmas, hope for humanity.
That the birth of the Redeemer
may bring peace and hope to all
people of good will.
 Parents. That parents may be
true evangelizers, passing on to
their children the precious gift of
prayer &
Advent is almost over. Christmas is 4
days away. How have we prepared?
No, not, “have all the gifts been
bought and the decorations put up
and the food prepared,” but how have
we personally prepared. Today’s
Gospel comes from Luke and recounts the Angel Gabriel appearing to
Mary to tell her, “Do not be afraid.”
Mary was to conceive the Savior of the
world and her cousin Elizabeth would
conceive John the Baptist, as well.
We hear the message, “…nothing will
be impossible for God.” Mary with
deepest faith accepted the message
and the mission. Our goal this Christmas Season and beyond is to accept
God’s message and mission. Tough
duty and something that will require
our deepest faith.

Advent Prayer
Oh, dear Lord, they are coming! Like
the Wise men wandering toward the
stable, visitors are heading to my
house. I am so excited about this
visit. But I can get so side-tracked
about how my house looks, or the
food that I serve. I can only keep this
prayerful with your help. Help me to
stay humble this Advent and
Christmas season. You invite us into
the humility of the stable where you
were born. Help me to remember
that humble-ness and the simple joy
of your birth. Let me stay focused on
my guests, not on myself and my
worries about my house. Guide me in
rejoicing in who these people are and
in loving them freely. Amen.

Are You Experiencing a Nagging ‘Chill’ in Your Life?
Our Stephen Ministers Can Help!
The sudden chilly weather we've had recently can be
symbolic of what can sometimes happen in life. A crisis
hits and we feel like we're buried beneath a drift of snow.
Relationships can become "frigid," or we can feel "frozen"
by life circumstances. We can wonder, "Is God even
there?" Stephen Ministers are trained to provide
confidential Christian care, giving you the emotional and
spiritual support you need to make it through a "winter" in your life. Our Stephen
Ministers are ready to care for you. To learn more about how a Stephen Minister
can help you or someone you know, contact Dottie O’Connor, 404-233-2675.

parishioners reside. Santa and Mrs. Clause stopped by the luncheon to deliver
gifts and good cheer.

Oración para el Adviento
Benignísimo Dios de infinita caridad que nos has amado tanto
y que nos diste en tu Hijo, la mayor prenda de tu amor, para que,
encarnado y hecho nuestro hermano en las entrañas de la Virgen,
naciese en un pesebre para nuestra salud y remedio; te damos
gracias por tan inmenso beneficio.
En retorno te ofrecemos, Señor, el esfuerzo sincero para hacer
de este mundo tuyo y nuestro, un mundo más justo, más fiel al
mandamiento de amarnos como hermanos.
Concédenos, Señor, tu ayuda para poder realizarlo.
Te pedimos que esta Navidad, fiesta de paz y de alegría, sea para
toda nuestra comunidad familiar un estímulo; a fin de que,
viviendo como hermanos, busquemos más y más los caminos de
la verdad, la justicia, el amor y la paz. Amén.

Dear Friends in Christ,
On behalf of Archbishop Wilton Gregory, the Clergy and
staff, I welcome you to the Cathedral of Christ the King. I
hope and pray that you feel welcomed by our parish
community and that your spiritual and pastoral needs will
be met.
We are a very active parish with 5,500 families and over one
hundred ministries. We encourage our members to share
their gifts of time, talent and treasure.
Our mission statement is to “Know, Love and Serve as Jesus
Did”. This is the mission of each disciple of Christ and, if
you are new, I hope and pray that you will join us and be
part of the community of Christ the King. If you are passing
through or visiting the city of Atlanta, I hope you enjoy your
worship experience and please visit us again.
If you would like to know more about our parish, you can
visit our website at www.cathedralofchristtheking.org or
email us.
May we, this day and all the days of our lives, know, love
and serve as Jesus did.
Prayers and Blessings,
Msgr. Frank McNamee, Rector
