Faith Formation Advent Service: Faith Formation students and families will celebrate Advent with a prayer service on Wednesday, December 19. Students should come to their Parish Center classroom at 6:30 PM and later will go with their teacher to church for the 7 PM service. That evening, we will collect small nonperishable food items plus toiletries, hand warmers, and other useful items to add to Isaac’s blessing bags, which will be given to the homeless at Christmas. Parents/guardians and parishioners are welcome to attend the prayer service. We will have light refreshments after the service. Students can be picked up from church at 7:45.
