All are invited December 9th at 7:00 pm to the annual Evening of Hope prayer service with a reception to follow! This prayer service is a beautiful way to culminate the beautiful weekend. It will include music, reflections from some of the weekend's volunteers, scripture, a blessing of children and the infant Jesus from their home mangers, and of course the procession to place the ornaments on the Trees of Hope.
Afterward, join us for a reception in the Activity Center with Christmas cookies, hot chocolate, a slideshow of photos from the weekend's events, and a chance to visit with other parishioners. The St. Ignatius Circus Company will be providing entertainment!
This year, because of cost, we decided not to schedule the live nativity. And because of declining numbers in attendance, we also decided not to offer a meal between the 5 pm Life Teen Mass and the 7 pm Evening of Hope (however, pizza will be provided for all Life Teen participants)
