The celebration of the Birth of Jesus is truly a time of rejoicing. Please join our parish in the following opportunities to rejoice in the gift of our Savior:

Our Evangelization Team will meet at the Rectory on Saturday, Dec. 16th at noon. We will travel to a local shopping center where we will invite others to join us for Christmas. We will be finished by 2pm. No experience needed. Please contact Richara for more information.

Our annual Home for Christmas at St. Raymond Church will happen once again on Christmas Day. We always need volunteers to assist with the set up (Friday, Dec 22nd from Noon to 6pm or Saturday, December 23rd from 9am until 4pm) or on Christmas Day itself (10am until 4pm). We are also in need of NEW toiletry items as well as all sizes of underwear, socks and gloves for men, women and children. Please deliver to the Parish Office before December 22nd. For more information, please contact Deacon Bill.

How is your Advent? Make it the best Advent Ever (even if there is only another 10 days). We will be discussing two more gifts we can give this Christmas at the 5pm, 8am and 10am Masses this weekend and next weekend (yes, you need to come to Mass on Dec. 23rd or Dec 24th as well as for Christmas). Let God into your life in a new way!

Want to help decorate our Church? Join us on Friday, December 22nd in the Church from Noon to 2pm. God will reward your goodness in serving with us! Contact Fr. Chris to let us know you will be joining us!
