We also need volunteers!  If you are available to bake or want to help, email Emily Grime here.

Sign Up for the Christmas Pageant
Christmas is coming, which means we’re in need of children and parents for our annual Christmas Pageant at the 4:00 pm Christmas Eve Children’s Mass.  From angels to shepherds to wise men, Mary, Joseph and the Star too, please sign up by contacting Sean Fitzsimmons-Brown no later than Monday, December 10th either by phone 813-229-1595, ext 205 or email him here. Parent volunteers are welcome!

Names for the lead roles will be drawn on Monday, December 11th. Costumes and roles will be given in St. Francis Hall on Saturday, December 15th at 9:00 am, followed by a brief rehearsal.

Christmas Poinsettias
Remember a loved one during the Christmas season with a poinsettia used to decorate our sanctuary. A long-standing tradition, each plant that you see has been given in remembrance or honor of loved ones whose names will be memorialized online.

Request forms can be found on the table near the church entrance, or download one here. All forms, along with the suggestion donation of $15 per plant, must be received by noon on Monday, December 17th.
