There will be refreshments and an opportunity for fellowship immediately following the program. There is no cost to attend but non-perishable food item will be welcome.
Santa is coming to the Ziti & Meatball Dinner
Not sure how Dave Cross pulled it off, but we have it on good authority that Santa will be taking some time off before Christmas and making the trip down from the North Pole to enjoy a plate or two of pasta. Stop by and grab a picture with the "big man" - bring your list too!
This weekend is the first Sunday of Advent, which means Christmas is just a month away. To help you plan your time well, and fit some spirituality into your already busy calendar, we are posting our schedule of prayer and fellowship opportunities for Advent and Christmas on our website. If you are curious as to when you can buy your Christmas Tree or Wreath on Parker St, looking to enjoy a good meal or two, or just want to know when you can go to Mass on Christmas morning; you can download the listing of events here: Advent & Christmas Schedule
