Multiple Roles for children and youth open for participation in Christmas Eve Mass

The children and youth of St. John Vianney Parish and St. John Vianney Catholic School are being recruited to portray roles in this year’s Christmas Eve Mass and Pageant at the 4:00 mass on Christmas Eve. This is a great way for young people to be a part of the spirituality of celebrating the holidays. Once again Martin Jennings will be coordinating and directing children and youth for this year's Christmas Eve mass. As many know, this is the 4th year using costumes which replicate the costumes worn by the figures of the nativity scene statues used each Christmas at St. John Vianney.


Handouts and information will again be available after all masses in the church December 6th and 7th, 2014 in the church vestibule.


Martin Jennings will be available to meet young people and their parents after 4:00 mass on Saturday, 12/6/14 and after 11:00 mass on Sunday 12/7/14. Be sure to check the “Registration Information” in the vestibule where hard-copies of the information also included as a link in this flyer will be available and families can sign up to participate.
