On Sunday, December 21st, Bernice Duchac will join us at the 9:30AM Mass at St. Augustine to share information about Our Sister's House. We will take a second collection to support the mission of this project. Bernice shared at the St. Mary's Masses a few weeks ago and also took a collection. Many members of St. Augustine requested that I invite her to join us as well.
There is a Communal Penance Service this Wednesday (12/17) at St. Augustine. It begins at 6:30PM.
I am looking for volunteers to usher/greet and distribute Holy Communion at the St. Mary's Christmas Masses. Please call the parish office or see me after Mass. This is a big help to have it planned in advance. We have a full church at the Masses, help is appreciated!
What a wonderful Advent Concert last week at St. Mary's. Thank you to all who took part in singing, playing instruments, narration, ushering, organizing and helping with the reception and most importantly for filling the church for the concert! A special thank you to Jan Huseby who spends countless hours in leadership for this great concert. (In fact, she is already planning for next year!)
Also thanks to all who helped with the great St. Mary's School Advent Program. The students were super! Thanks to all the school staff and others who help with the program. Much extra time is spent on preparation as well as performing. Another sign of the importance of St. Mary's Catholic School and the dedication and quality of the staff who are a part of it!
