It’s Christmas Eve! How quickly this time has come upon us!
We are breathless. Still so much to be done.
Calm your spirits. Take time on this “O Holy Night” to hear the wondrous news.
Open our ears to hear Mary’s Story.
Believe in the good news!
We believe and rejoice! God’s love is here with us! AMEN.

Our Response to All that God Has & Is Doing
THE PASSING OF THE LIGHT OF CHRIST
Please pass the light, and as you do, hold the lit candle straight,
tilting the unlit candle toward it. This will prevent wax from dripping
onto your hand and carpet.
