Can You Help Set Up the Christmas Manger?
We need your help (anyone 16 years and older) to set up the Christmas manger. If you are available, please come to the Church Monday, Dec. 22 at 6:30 PM. 
4:10 PM Mass Added on Christmas Eve
From Msgr. Diamond: "The 4 PM Christmas Eve Mass has always been excessively crowded. This year, I am providing a Mass in Conahan Hall at 4:10 PM in order to allow anyone who wishes to avoid the crowds and celebrate Mass in a less hectic environment. The Children’s Liturgy will continue in the main Church. I am hoping that the 4:10 PM Mass affords an opportunity to those who wish to celebrate Mass at that hour as an alternative venue. Msgr. Miller will be the celebrant of the Mass in Conahan Hall."
