Christmas Mass Schedule: Fine-Tune Your Christmas Plans

 General Comments

  1. Limited parking and crowded Masses on Christmas can cause tension and anxiety, but please remember we are here to celebrate the birth of Christ, and patience and kindness fit the occasion. We have developed a reputation of being a hospitable and welcoming community. Let’s make sure everyone who enters our doors experiences hospitality and a warm welcome.
  2. Because of the shortage of parking on Christmas, please consider using the school parking lot. We will have the main entrance to the school open for you to enter through.
  3. We will livestream the Mass occurring in the church to the flatscreen in the gathering area and chapel. If you are located in these areas we will bring communion to you.
  4. We will be distributing a Christmas gift to you at all Masses. We believe this gift can have a major impact on your desire to deepen your faith and relationship with Christ.
