Advent Family Night
The youth groups will be hosting their annual Advent Family Night on Monday, December 2! All families, whether their children are youth group members or not, are invited to join in to celebrate the start of this beautiful liturgical season. The evening will run from 7:00-8:30pm in the Parish Centre and will include a dramatic presentation by the youth group leaders, music, prayer, a craft, and games. There is no cost to participate. Please contact Wes by Monday, November 25 if you would like to attend.
This Christmas Eve the annual Christmas pageant will be taking place once again at St. Francis Xavier Parish before the celebration of the 5pm Mass! The pageant is a short silent play about the birth of Jesus. This year there will also be a new addition to the evening – the story of St. Boniface and the first Christmas tree, written by our own Fr. Claude, which will precede the pageant itself.
Students in Grades 3 – 7 are invited to sign up as readers and actors, and will also have the opportunity to take part in the Mass as readers and gift bearers. Rehearsals will start at the beginning of December. The permission form is attached, and is also available at the parish office and the letter trays in the parish lobby. The form must be returned to the parish office by Friday, December 6. Please encourage your children to consider being part of the pageant this year and sharing their talents with the church community as we celebrate the birth of our Savior together!!
