Instead of Christmas gifts this year, the Country pantry is collecting new blankets for Christmas distribution to their client families. If you would like to donate a new blanket you may send it with your child to class any week in November.
Children’s Liturgy is celebrated every week at St. Mary’s. The first weekend of the month this occurs at 5:15 Mass on Saturday (followed by a community potluck dinner in the school gym). The remainder of the month it is celebrated at 10:30 Mass. The next Saturday Supper will be December 6th. Take a peek at our family corner in the front vestibule of church. There are worship bags that include activities for small children to borrow during Mass and copies of Magnifikid for the 8-12 year old crowd–this is a great publication and teaching tool for understanding the Sunday Mass.
