The Giving Tree is up! Take a scroll and buy a new toy for a child from our sharing parish, Ascension-St. Susanna. Please put unwrapped gifts in a gift bag and return to the rectory by December 17. You may also place new and unwrapped gifts (warm clothing, bedding, toys) under the tree for The Mission of Our Lady of the Angels in Humboldt Park. Please note that those gifts need to be received by December 3.
We will be celebrating the Christmas Eve Family Mass on Monday, December 24 at 4pm, and SRB students in Grades 1-4 are invited to sing as our choir! These children have been rehearsing the music every week and look forward to sharing their gift of song with the parish. Families are encouraged to bring their children to sing and attend mass as a family. Please arrive by 3:25 and have your child dress up—no jeans, gym shoes, or t-shirts. Carols begin at 3:30. Fa, la, la!
