Following the overwhelming success of last year's Three Parish Advent Celebration, St. Rose of Lima and Annunciation Catholic Schools will join Risen Christ for the distribution of the Angel Tree gifts donated by the parish. Father Eric will celebrate Mass in Spanish at 11:00 AM in the gym, while Father Scott celebrates our regularly-scheduled 11:00 Mass in the church in English. After Mass, we'll all enjoy lunch, caroling, and crafts as we celebrate our shared faith and humanity.
We are asking Risen Christ parishioners to donate food and time to make this a welcoming, joyful event for families from all three parishes. Our parents asked for ways for students to practice their faith, and this is one of the best! This is also a wonderful way for Confirmandi to earn volunteer hours in the "Church" portion of their requirements, and .5 hours will be awarded for each food item Confirmation/First Communion families bring, up to a total of 2 hours' additional credit!
Please bring food donations to the parish BY FRIDAY, DECEMBER 6TH so we have time to purchase any missing items.
It is our goal to make this a meaningful event that highlights our similarities over our differences.
Please contact Christine Fritschen with any questions or concerns: [email protected] or 720-531-9548 direct at the parish / 303-868-7610 cell (text is best for unrecognized numbers!)
