Giving Tree is part of Advent each year. Thanks Gretchen and family for this amazing venture and you for your giving.
Christmas Masses were a time of worship and immense joy as we welcomed Jesus born on this night. In difficult travel times, your presence here was a witness to your faith and love. The music at all the Masses was superb, Santa paid a visit, mulled wine was served, the beautiful Crib provided a wonderful reminded of the who of all this.
