All are welcomed to join us for this celebration of the Nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ. 

Here are suggestions for keeping Christ's birthday special this year:

1) keep your Christmas decor up at least until the Feast of Epiphany - the 12 days of Christmas.

2) explain your Nativity Set to your childen and grandchildren  - details at
3) have a Bible visible to visitors and opened to Matthew or Luke's Gospel
4) make sure one of the gifts for your children and grandchildren is a sacred reminder (an icon, rosary, statue, etc.). Enclose a little note telling them how important your faith is to you.
5) invite others to sit with you at Christ's Mass (schedule above)
