Current and Upcoming Events
St. Nicholas Night
Families are invited to join us for our annual St. Nicholas Celebration on Sunday, Dec. 2,from 5:00 to 6:30 pm.
Young children will be invited to hear the story of St. Nicholas told by our wonderful preschool catechist, Mrs. G., along with games and a few surprises! This will be followed by a potluck supper for families.
We need volunteers to make this night a memorable one. Please sign up HERE to help with set-up, clean-up, games or to bring food.
Children’s Christmas Mass and Nativity Play
The Children’s Christmas Mass will take place on Christmas Eve, Monday, December 24, at 4:00 pm. Children are invited to participate in a presentation of the Nativity story during the homily. Practice for the Nativity play will be on Saturday, Dec. 15 at 3:00 pm. Please plan to participate in this Holy Comforter tradition!
Reverse Advent Project
In the spirit of St. Nicholas, instead of receiving, how about giving this Advent Season? Find a box or basket to put in a prominent place in your home. Each day of Advent, place an item in it for someone else. Consider focusing these items toward the people served by the Holy Comforter Soup Kitchen and Salvation Army. The list below is an example of items that are needed year-round.
These items are to be purchased with your OWN money: allowance money, gift money, or money you have earned. If you don’t have money or can’t get to a store, please consider making birthday cards or “just because” cards that can be given out a both places. The hope is that this is a family project with all members participating.
Hold on to your box and bring it with you to the first Christian Formation class after Christmas break. That is Jan. 6, 2019, the Feast of the Epiphany. Just as the Wise Men presented their gifts to Jesus, you will be offering your gifts to people in need who are “Jesus in disguise.”
