Grace and peace. Thanks to everyone for your expressions of support after my engagement announcement last week. I am thankful to be serving here at St. Patrick’s. I don’t have as surprising an announcement this week being that Christmas happens every year. Christmas is the celebration of Jesus presence with us. At St. Patrick’s, we will begin celebrations of Christmas with the Pageant service at 5pm (costuming at 4:15pm) on Christmas Eve followed by the traditional late-night service which begins with a concert at 9:30pm followed by the worship service at 10pm. On Christmas morning, we will have a service with music at 10:30am. Our space comes alive with the joy, peace and love of this special celebration. I hope that everyone has a wonderful Christmas and, if you are in town, will join us at St. Patrick’s.
P.S. I need at least one more acolyte for Christmas Eve at both the 5pm and 10pm services. I am looking for a person in middle school or high school.
