It’s almost time…the great feast of the Nativity is almost upon us. So, it’s time we get the church ready.

On Sunday, December 21st after the 10am Liturgy, we invite everyone to stick around and help put up the rather large Angel Tree and all the decorations. Bring along some snacks if you’d like. All are welcome to share in the fun.

For an end to the senseless violence and destruction we commit against one another…may peace reign now and forever.

For the beloved creatures we are called to care for: pray that all animals are treated with dignity and love.

For those who experience depression and sadness during the holiday season: may light, peace and happiness fill their hearts and minds and guide them to a better place.
