You may also bring them to the Christmas Brunch. This gesture of kindness is greatly appreciated by those who are homebound.

The Star of Bethlehem
Come watch the documentary on the big screen in the church basement! Thursday, December 12, @ 6:30 p.m. “The film presents a magnificent display of the evidence to support the claims made for the Star of Bethlehem, done in a way that engages even the most hostile viewer in an entertaining and easily understandable format. This amazing documentary underscores the Biblical words that ‘The heavens declare the glory of God.’ to do our part of fulfilling Christ’s mission for the Church. …A film that will enthrall the whole family!”
Church decorating for Christmas is December 17th after the 5:30 p.m. Mass.
The Giving Tree
There is a small tree in the vestibule that has cards with local children’s needs on it. Please take a card, purchase the item listed on the card, and return the item with the card to the tree. In addition to the card items, the Lyndon Elementary school is in need of glue sticks and children size mittens and gloves that are water repellent. Items and cards are due by the 1:00 Mass on December 15th. Contact Linda Lochner @ 847-867-4941 with any questions. THANK YOU for helping bring joy to local children this Christmas!
