2017 Advent and Christmas Schedule and Information

Advent Bible Study with Father Jeremy Will meet the first four Friday mornings of December to study and discuss the upcoming weekend readings

Time: 7:15 to 8:15am (before Mass at 8:30)

Where: Front pews of church

Who: Anyone

What to Bring: Nothing since we will use the Worship Hymnal in church (bring Bible if you like)


We prepare for everything we consider important in life. And that includes Christmas. We visit family and friends, bake cookies, decorate our trees, and shop for gifts until we’re ready to drop.

This year, prepare for Christmas in a different way. Join our parish for Best Advent Ever, a free email program from Dynamic Catholic that will help you slow down and focus on what matters most during Advent. Each day, you’ll receive an email with . . .

• Short inspirational videos from leading Catholic voices Matthew Kelly and Dr. Allen Hunt

• Practical tips for your everyday life

• Real-life stories of hope!
