Lessons & Carols and Community Advent Celebration

December 9, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm

CELEBRATE THE COMING OF OUR SAVIOR at our Community Advent celebration, on Saturday, December 9th starting at 5:00 p.m. in Goshen House. Once again Ray and Dawn Glennon have agreed to take on the lion’s share of this tradition started by our beloved Janice Zimmerman, who will no doubt be enjoying the festivities from up above. Additional helping hands are always appreciated!

Here is the schedule of events:

5:00 p.m. Lessons and Carols in Our Lady’s Chapel – join us for this beautiful presentation of the Christmas story!

6:00 p.m. Dinner Reception with various food stations around the living room and dining room.

Around 7:00 p.m. Saint Nicholas makes his appearance with goodie bags for the children.

Merry-making continues, along with clean-up and departure by 10:00 p.m.

Cost, payable at the door, is $10.00 per person, $30.00 maximum per family. We are asking, in addition to the entrance cost, for each family to bring a dessert to share. This can be a favorite Christmas treat, cookies, cake, or chocolates, M&M’s, candy canes – anything you enjoy at Christmastime! Be creative!

There is no RSVP required, but **please tell Teri Stief in the MOGC office, the names of kids** who are coming (up to age 16) so we’ll know who St. Nicholas should bring a goodie bag for.

Put on your best holiday duds, a happy heart and celebrate Jesus’ coming with us!!
