The annual Christmas Offering is traditionally our biggest collection of the year, and helps us meet our rising expenses. Please consider a generous Christmas gift to St. Mary’s this year. If you do not receive parish envelopes, there are additional Christmas envelopes by our church exits

Sacrament of Reconciliation

Christmas will be here before we know it, and many of our parishioners prepare themselves spiritually by receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation. We are offering Confessions next Saturday after the 5 PM Mass and on Monday and Tuesday December 22nd and 23rd at 7 PM.

Our Christmas Mass schedule includes a special Children’s Mass at 4 PM on Christmas eve (December 24th), followed by Vigil Masses at 6 PM and 8 PM and a beautiful Midnight Mass at 12. Masses on Christmas Day will be celebrated at 8 AM, 10 AM and 12 noon.

Christmas Carol Sing-Along – Dec 20th – 6:15 PM

Christmas will soon be upon us. To help get into the Christmas spirit, our parish is hosting a Christmas Carol Sing-Along on Saturday, December 20th, after the 5 PM Mass. We will hear the Christmas story, sing some great Christmas carols, have a little fun and then go over to the cafeteria for some snacks and refreshments. Don’t miss this opportunity to come together as family, sing as loud as you can — good or bad voices — and just have some Christmas fun. Put the craziness of the season behind for just one evening and let loose in some Christmas spirit.

For more info call the parish office during normal office hours at 298-0261.

 

Blessing of Baby Jesus – Dec 20th & 21st

Everyone is invited to bring their Baby Jesus from their home manger, and place in our church manger, to be blessed on the weekend of December 20th & 21st. Blessings will take place during the Mass, at all of our weekend Masses.

Traveling Catholic Faith CD – Dec

Since this month is Advent and we seem to prepare for Christmas right after Thanksgiving, it seemed appropriate that this month’s subject should be on Christmas.  Father Robert Barron from Word on Fire talks to us about “A Baby born in Straw Poverty”.  It is pretty deep, so you will have to keep it in your car’s CD player and listen to it several times.  As always the CDs are on the table in the back of the church.  If you can’t find any, look next weekend as we replenish them during the week.  For more info call the parish office during normal office hours at 298-0265.
