This weekend we will be taking up a second collection after Holy Communion for our parish families that need a hand this Christmas and Sack Lunch Program in our Parish. Please be as generous as you can.
Wednesday, December 8 is the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, a Holy day of Obligation. Masses will be at 12:10 and 7:00 p.m.
Our monthly potluck supper will be this Thursday, December 9th beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the Parish Hall.
Next weekend we will have a second collection for the Retirement Fund for Religious. Please be as generous as you can.
The Men’s Club is taking orders for poinsettias to be used at the altar at Christmas. If you would like to order a plant in honor or memory of a loved one, the envelopes are at each entrance of the church.
The Youth Group is selling Christmas Angels in memory or honor of loved ones. These will be displayed on the trees during the Christmas season. You can purchase these in the front foyer of the church after Mass.
As part of our preparations for celebrating the birth of our Lord, we have an important giving opportunity. In the main entrance to the church is a GIVING TREE. On this tree are paper bells. On these bells are gift suggestions for various age groups as well as some specific requests as part of our Secret Santa project for families within our own church in need of a helping hand. Gifts not going to a church family will go to families at the family Abuse Center. Please take one or two or more bells and use them as shopping guides, then return your gifts with the bells attached to the church off ice or place them around the tree. If you would like to make a monetary donation please take that to the church office.
