Updated Financial Statement

Our parish finance council has been working hard to produce an updated financial statement before the new year.

Christmas Masses 

If you haven’t yet registered for Christmas Mass, join the waitlist.  The waitlist is available for all Masses with the exception of the Mass on Christmas Eve at 4:00 p.m.  By putting your name on the waitlist, we will do our best to find “room at the inn” for everyone!  You will be contacted when a seat is assigned to you.  

Advent Tree and Christmas Hamper Project 

Whoohooo!  Drumroll please!   

We are pleased to announce that 90 gift cards with a total value of $2,860 were delivered to Brother Andre and L.B. Pearson on Tuesday morning.  Because of your generous gifts, 90 children will have a gift under the tree Christmas morning.  A big thank you to all who made this possible. 

This year 33 families will enjoy a special Christmas feast.  We are overjoyed that all the families on our list have been sponsored. Their hampers will be delivered on December 21.  In addition to the goodies supplied by sponsors, each family will receive a hand-knitted dish towel and a cake mix along with a turkey or ham.  We are grateful for the folks sponsoring a family and the generous parishioners who have provided the dish towels, cake mixes and turkeys.   

For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in.
