Archbishop Carlson's Wish for Advent

Archbishop Carlson asks all Catholics in the archdiocese to attend Mass at a parish who demographics are different from their home parish this Advent.

Letter from Archbishop Robert Carlson:

"During the season of Advent I am asking all Catholics in the archdiocese to attend Mass at a parish whose demographics are different from their home parish. We celebrate Mass in 7 different languages each week in this archdiocese. We have rural and inner city parishes of a few hundred parishioners and suburban parishes of a few thousand. We celebrate Mass in neighborhoods where the average household income is below the poverty line and also in neighborhoods where the 1% live. We are indeed a diverse archdiocese in many aspects, and I hope that by encouraging our flock to attend Mass at a parish different from their own, it will promote understanding of our different economic, racial and cultural backgrounds, and remind us that we are all one through the Body of Christ. Mass schedules for every parish are available here"
