Advent/Christmas 2017

O Come Divine Messiah

We often get so swept up with the parties, presents and food that we forget the source of all joy, the birthday boy himself, our Lord Jesus Christ. For that reason, our theme this year is "CHRISTmas4Everyone: A Gift Given, A Gift Shared". We invite you to keep in mind that a Gift, a Saviour, has been born to us and we are called as joyful Christians to share Him with all!

So do take a copy of the Advent/Christmas Events pamphlet to see what's happening in our parish over the next few weeks! We're excited and we hope you'll be just as excited to share the joy with others too. Let us go make disciples!

Sale of CHRISTmas Gifts

Looking for something to bless others with this Christmas? We’re selling T-Shirts, tote bags and prayer journals designed by our very own parishioners. The profits will go towards our parish outreach efforts, including defraying the costs of the Christmas Fiesta.

Advent Prayer Trees

We pray especially for those who have been far from God. Ask the Holy Spirit to guide you in praying for someone this Advent. Write their names on a tag and hang it on the prayer trees in Church. May they make room for Jesus in their heart this season

The trees will be there throughout Advent. You may write and hang the name of the person before or after Mass. The trees are near the church sanctuary.

A day of fast, prayer and support as we prepare our hearts to reach out during Christmas.
