Confirmation Students Display Their Saint Projects

Thank you to all Parents, Sponsors, Catechists, Parishioners & Fr. Barr for coming out to support the Confirmation Students on their Saint Projects. The Students did a great job on all their research and presenting of their Saints. Many were asked questions on how and why they chose that particular Saint. Confirmation this year will be Wednesday, January 23, 2019, at 5:30pm at St Mary Church. A special thanks to all that provided the treats. Everyone enjoyed them.

Christmas Play

RE Christmas PlayDecember 8, 2018 5:30pm at the Holy Family Community Center
THE RELIGIOUS EDUCATION STUDENTS WILL BE TELLING THE STORY OF JESUS’ BIRTH

Everyone is invited to come for a night filled with food and worship as you listen to our students tell the story. The Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (The Blue Nuns) will also be entertaining us with songs from their Native Land.
Beverages will be provided, but everyone is asked to bring a dish to pass. This is a potluck meal, so please bring enough to share.
Also, the students are doing a food drive for the local FACC food pantry. Please consider bringing a boxed or canned food to this drive.
We hope to see you there.
