Serve at Christmas

The celebration of Christmas Mass sees hundreds of people come streaming through our doors.  Our guests may be families that have traveled far, our neighbors, and good friends and many who may be strangers to us.  This year, we would like to extend a warm personal welcome and a Merry Christmas wish to each of them.  In order to do this, we will need many Ministers of Welcome at our Christmas Eve Masses:  3:00 pm, 5:00 pm, 7:00 pm and 10:00 pm, as well as at the Christmas morning masses:  8:30 am and 10:30 am.

 

If you or you and your family will be attending one of these masses we invite you to be a Minister of Welcome. Sign up at the table with balloons near the Welcome Center this weekend.  Thank you for continuing to be such a welcoming community.
