On Sunday, Dec. 8, 2013, children of the parish gathered with their parents, grandparents and friends to enjoy the annual Breakfast with Santa. All were treated to a hearty breakfast that included scrambled eggs, pancakes, sausage, juice, coffee and more. And, of course, the children were excited with the arrival of Santa and each given a present. Here are some images from the event.
The East Side Advent Penance Service takes place at 7 p.m. Monday, Dec. 16, at Mount Carmel / Blessed Sacrament. Several priests from the area will be present. Take this opportunity to receive the Sacrament before Christmas. Also, Father Jim will be available for confessions from 4 to 5:30 p.m. in the church.
