  • Family ornament tree

  • JIngle Jam

    Children's program at the 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm Christmas Eve masses.  Let the Jollification (yes, that is a real word) begin!   This year we will celebrate Jingle Jam - a children’s program for our young disciples in grades 1-5.   

     

    What does Jingle Jam look like?  Children will depart from the main worship space at the beginning of mass and proceed to Hoffman Hall.  During the program, the children will have a blast in discovering the Christmas story through song, dance and storytelling. Parents are welcome to assist the littlest of our bunch (ages 5 and under) so they can experience the festivities as well. Then the kids will return to the main worship space after the homily.  

     

    The theme for Jingle Jam is "A Sense-ible Christmas". Utilizing sights, sounds, taste, touch, and even smell, Jingle Jam is a sense-ible way to retell the Christmas story and explore the theme of compassion with our children and their families!
