The second Sunday of Advent has a visit from “St. Nicholas.” The children gather at the 5:00pm mass and during the homily are given a package of seeds to take home and grow. At the end of the mass, St. Nicholas arrives and gathers them in the church hall where they sit on his lap, tell him what they want for Christmas, are handed a candy cane and Nativity Coloring Books.
What was called the “Happy Birthday Jesus Mass” will take place on Christmas eve at 4:00 pm. It is a children’s mass.
We have an Easter egg hunt after the children’s 5:00pm mass on Easter Sunday. Volunteers are busy stuffing eggs and hiding them. The Easter bunny comes in immediately following mass and directs everyone out to the church grounds for the hunt.
