As we prepare for Christmas, some needs and announcements:
o We still need volunteers for the weekly lighting of the Advent Wreath candles. If you have not yet signed up, please consider doing so this weekend.
o Our Giving Tree initiative has changed this year due to the pandemic. Catholic Charities has requested gift cards in $25 denominations. Please, drop off your contribution in the box designed for this purpose. You can also write a check to Resurrection Catholic Church (“Giving Tree” in the memo), and we will purchase gift card(s) on your behalf
o We would like to finalize our Christmas Mass schedule, but cannot do so without insuring that we have Ushers at every scheduled Mass. Please, contact the office if you are willing to serve at any of the following times:
- Christmas Eve 3:00 p.m.
- Christmas Eve 4:30 p.m.
- Christmas Eve 6:00 p.m.
- Christmas Day 9:00 a.m.
- Christmas Day 10:30 a.m.
Masses will be deleted from the schedule if Ushers cannot be secured.
o We continue to collect donations for Christmas flowers. About half the cost of the poinsettias have now been covered. Please, consider contributing to the remaining half, and rescue the pastor’s lunch money from escrow.
o The Resurrection Elves will be gathering on Sunday, December 20th, after the 10:30 Mass. We already have five volunteers, but could use a few more to share the load and keep the burden light. Pizza will be provided for all workers. Contact the office if you are willing to help.
