Children’s Christmas Pageant 

See how the shepherds, summoned to His cradle,

Leaving their flocks, draw nigh to gaze;

We too will thither bend our joyful footsteps;

O come, let us adore Him!

 

Calling All Children, age 3 through 6th grade!

       We will be once again celebrating our Children's Christmas Pageant at the 5:00 pm Mass on Christmas Eve.  All children are invited to participate (even children who may be visiting from out of town).   You can wear your own angel, shepherd, or animal costume; OR , arrive by 4:15 pm on Christmas Eve to get outfitted in one of the parish pageant costumes.  

       Auditions for speaking parts will be held during the 12/13 and 12/20 Sunday school period at 10:10 am. 

       All children with speaking parts are asked to attend a dress rehearsal on Monday, December 22nd from 11:00 - 1:00 pm (lunch provided).   Other participants without speaking roles do not need to attend the rehearsal.
