Would you or your family like to light the candles for the Advent Wreath this season?
Sign up for one of the spots at the Welcome table in the Commons and arrive at that mass 20 minutes before that Mass begins. Check in with the prayer leader for that mass in the Sacristy so they can explain what you will do. Thanks so much for being a part of this season of preparation for the coming of our Lord more deeply into our lives!
Angel Tree Outreach
Select an Angel that represents a person in need this Christmas at the table near the Library. Angels range in age from children to the elderly, and each angel holds a wish list of items they would like and you can choose what to give from that list. Be sure to fill out and leave the identification card for each Angel so we can keep track of who is getting gifts for the person. The card can be put in the parish mail slot if you missed returning it at the Mass. All directions are on the angels and you are ask to return all gifts to the Masses on Dec. 7 & 8 to ensure delivery in time for Christmas. If you cannot make those Masses be sure to return the gifts before Dec. 7 to the parish office. Questions? Contact the parish office at 639-6712.
