Please mirror God’s generosity by bringing an item for these families as they seek to rebuild their lives. They especially need winter gloves for children, flip flops, ear buds, lotions, bath/lotion sets, full-sized toiletries, and new twin-sized sheets.

Parishioners are also invited to assist the Middle School Service Club (MSSC) with a service project in the Dining Room from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM.

Advent & Christmas Schedule 2018

What are you bringing to the manger?

In this season of gift giving, we know that nothing can equal the greatest gift of all – the gift of Jesus!

Just as the Magi brought gifts to the Manger of the Child, we invite you to bring your gifts of gratitude to the manger as well. Throughout Advent you have the opportunity to express your gratitude and bring your gift to the manger. You will find patterns to make a gift box in the Commons by the manger or click here to download one to print at home. Write your gratitude prayer, place it in the box and bring your gift box to the manger as an offering of thanks and love to the Christ Child. Let’s fill the manger with our presents of gratitude!

These gifts of prayers and thanksgiving will remain in our baptistery throughout Christmastide.


Let us join together this Season of Advent and Christmas as we prepare for and celebrate the birth of our Lord.
