Alumni Blast: December!



Advent: A season observed as a time of expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus at Christmas as well as the return of Jesus as the second coming. If you can, please join us for weekend Mass during  Advent, and of course, for our Christmas and New Year’s Day Masses. 



Hungry for some homemade Christmas cookies and placek from Kanty’s Kitchen? You can pick some up soon and we will have not only cutouts but a variety of other favorites…Saturday, December 1 from 3-5, and Sunday, December 2 from 9:30-2. On Sunday come for lunch: BBQ burgers or chili, eat in or take out, and a visit with Santa from noon-1.
