2014 Christmas Eve Mass Plans in Progress
This year we are once again hoping we can get in touch with Santa Claus to make a return visit to our parish at mass. If anyone is able to get in touch with him, please have him contact Martin Jennings, coordinator of the Christmas Eve Mass.

Real baby needed to portray Baby Jesus at Christmas Eve Mass
It would be great to have a real live baby participating this year in the role of Baby Jesus. If anyone is aware of a healthy, relatively new baby who's been born in within the last month or two, whose parents wouldn't mind having him or her portray such an auspicious role, they should also contact Martin via email at email@example.com

Ideas, activities, articles and thoughts for families of all age to consider during the season of Advent.
Feast of Immaculate Conception: December 8, 2014
The heart of this Feast is the fact that God preserved Mary from all sin, personal and even original, because God foresaw that Mary would agree to be and then become the mother of Jesus. Because of this singular gift to Mary, she stands with us today as a unique model of grace. There will be a Mass at St. John Vianney at 10:30 a.m. on this Holy Day of Obligation.
