This is it!  The Fourth Sunday of Advent and then in a few days, it will be Christmas.  May we all try to take some quiet time in the midst of this "busyness" to reflect on this wonderful gift, the birth of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour.

Christmas Eve Mass times are at 6:00 pm (with the Children's Pageant), 8:00 pm 
Christmas Day 10:00 am

Please, if you can spare any time tomorrow afternoon (Sat. Dec. 21st) at 3:00 pm to help set-up the gym and decorate for Christmas, that would be great.  We would welcome you with open arms.  

May this be a most blessed time for you and your family.  

God Bless,

Christmas at St. Andrew

Set-up of the gym for Christmas will be on Saturday, December 21st at 3:00 pm.  Lots of extra things to be done to make our space beautiful and this means we need extra help.  I know we are all busy at this time of year but every little bit helps.

We need ushers and greeters for the Christmas Masses.  Sign-up sheets will be on the table at the entrance of the gym. 
If you haven't signed up for Alpha, what are you waiting for?  Call or send me an email to the parish.

Not too much time left before Christmas.  I hope your preparations are going well and that you are feeling the joy.  Please say a prayer for those who find the holidays difficult.

The First practice for our Christmas Eve Pageant is this Sunday after the 9:30 am Mass.  It is not too late to sign up your child or grandchild (between the ages of 4 - 12 years).  It is a great experience and one that will create a beautiful memory.
