ANGEL TREE TIME AGAIN!
Please remember to return all packages to the back of the church no later than Sunday, December 9th. All gifts should be wrapped with the angel taped securely on top. Help make someone smile this Christmas - give the gift of love!
ANNUAL CHRISTMAS LIVE NATIVITY
On Sunday, December 16 at 3:00PM, Saint Mary Parish will conduct its annual Christmas Concert in Church followed by our Annual Live Nativity by the bus loop near school. Come and join us for an afternoon of sacred music and fellowship. I am grateful for both the Performing Arts Center and Office of Religious Education of Saint Mary Parish for sponsoring this afternoon of Advent/Christmas joy.
ADVENT PENANCE SERVICE
Are you thinking what to give Jesus this year for Christmas? Why not give Him your sins? Your sins are the very reason why He came to our world to save us. Confessions are heard every Saturday at 9:30AM
and again at 2:45PM. There will be an Advent Penance Service held on Monday, December 17 at 7:00PM. For a Reconciliation Book, click here or the advent service box.
ANNUAL CENSUS and PARISH APPEAL:
A mailing was sent to households on the Census and Appeal. This Census and Appeal is important to us here at Saint Mary Parish because its purpose is two-fold: One, it helps us to update our Parish records and Two, the Parish Appeal will help us to continue to maintain our 22 acres of property and 6 buildings in a manner you have come to expect and deserve. You will be happy to know that our Parish has ascertained a new Data Software Program. We are switching from Parish Data System (PDS) to Servant Keeper. Servant Keeper will allow us, on a parish level, to obtain much more information, quickly print reports and schedule lay ministers of the Mass in an efficient manner. Thank you so much for your support and cooperation.
