St. Lucy Liturgy | An Intergenerational Service
Sunday, December 11 at 10:15 am
Celebrate St. Lucy, the patron saint of light, in an intergenerational service designed to engage both children and adults. During the 9:00 formation hour, elementary age children will create their own Christingles, oranges tied with a ribbon and holding a candle, as well as four sticks with fruit and candy. The children will process in at the beginning of the service with their Christingles, representing the light of Christ to the world. We hope you’ll come enjoy the fun!

Angel Tree Outreach
We will once again “adopt” six families for whom to purchase Christmas gifts. We will set up the Angel Tree on December 3. Individuals and families are encouraged to choose an ornament from the Angel Tree. Each ornament has the name of a person in one of our six adopted families with some suggestions for Christmas gifts that the person would like to receive. Our ingathering of wrapped gifts will be on December 18, when the gifts will surround our altar and will be blessed before they are given to the families. It’s a fun time to spread Christmas cheer and, as always, one more opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus in our community.
