Quality Care Nursing Home in Waco is having their Annual Christmas Gift Fundraiser. All Proceeds go towards purchasing Christmas Gifts for all the residents at Quality Care. They need your help with a donation of a cake, a pie or cookies for their December 10th hot dog luncheon. Baked goods can be dropped off at the Church Office on the morning of Dec. 9th. Also, please attend the luncheon on Dec. 10th at Quality Care.
If you would like to purchase a poinsettia for the altar at Christmas the Poinsettia Envelopes are at each entrance of the church.

Save the Date – Friday December 20th at 6:00 p.m. we will have a “Christmas Movie Night” in the Parish Hall. The movie will be “It’s a Wonderful Life”. Please bring drinks and snacks to share.
Correction from Last Week’s Bulletin – There will not be a Pro-Life Waco lunch and meeting today.
There is an “Angel Tree” in the Foyer of the Church. Listed on the back of each ornament is an item that is needed or wanted by a child from our Parish. If you are able to purchase one of these Christmas Gifts; take an ornament – return the item and the ornament to the church office before December 19th.
This year our youth will not be selling Angels to decorate our large trees for Christmas. If you have any ornaments that you would like to donate to St. Mary’s to be used this year and for years to come, please bring them to the Church office.
