We will be extending the time this month until 9:00pm, to be able to watch a Christmas movie at the end of the evening. Bring comfy clothes, blankets or a sleeping bag and your Christmas spirit!
Take a break from your Christmas shopping and come share a meal, play some games, listen to some music and watch a movie with your firends.
The Confirmation class is once again making Christmas bags for the men at Immacare Shelter and is in need of decks of playing cards. Anyone interested in donating playing cards may leave them in the baskets at the church entrances. We are also continuing to collect gently used beanie babies, small stuffed animals and fiction books (children & adult) for various Confirmation service projects.
We will be changing our missals for the First Sunday of Advent, December 3rd. The 2018 missal contains the liturgy for the entire year as well as the hymns and songs.
Next week's collection for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) needs your help. CCHD was founded to break the cycle of poverty in America by funding organizations that help individuals help themselves. With a tradition of improving education, housing situations, and community economic development, CCHD continues to make a positive impact in communities nationwide. Your contribution will defend human dignity and reach out to those living on the margins. Please give to the CCHD Collection next weekend.
A Special Thank You to all parishioners who donated leftover Halloween Candy so that it can be enjoyed by our brothers and sisters at House of Bread and Immacare Shelter.
