THE SEASON OF ADVENT IS UPON US……
Family Mass December 3rd at 10am
San Agustin Altar Society Luncheon
Children’s Nativity Gospel Drama – 5pm Mass on Christmas Eve
It’s time prepare for our traditional Christmas Eve Mass at San Agustin and help Father John put the Gospel reading of the nativity into action! It’s lots of fun and a great way to help our community celebrate this special time. We are looking for children ages 3-12 who are interested in helping us dramatize the Nativity gospel story of Jesus’ birth. There are no lines to memorize and all costumes will be provided. We just need your enthusiasm and cooperation as we share in this story of our faith in action, word and song. If your child would like to participate, all you have to do is:
1.) Call Mary Hammond at 345-5231 to reserve your child’s role in the story
2.) Attend the rehearsal on Saturday, December 23rd at 10am (the rehearsal will last approximately one hour)
3.) Come to Mass on Christmas Eve and check into the meeting room by 4:30pm
Adult and teen volunteers are welcome. We look forward to this very special celebration of our Lord’s birth!

9 LESSONS & CAROLS – Wednesday, December 13th, St. Phillip’s Church at 7pm
At this time each year, we remember and celebrate cherished memories of those we have loved and lost. Join our tradition of writing loved one’s names on a star ornament and placing it on our Remembrance Tree. This beautiful olive tree symbolizes life and reminds us that our loved ones are still near to us. Our tree will be up the first Weekend of Advent and will remain lit each night throughout this holiday season in memory of these special lights of our lives!
