Upcoming Events

Give thanks to the Lord through worshipping at the Eucharist
On Thanksgiving Day,
Thursday, November 27, 2014
Masses: 8:30 and 10:30 a.m.

Each year, we at Light of Christ, gather together to celebrate Mass on Thanksgiving Day. During the Offertory, non-perishable gifts of food for the needy are brought to the altar. One of the Corporal Works of Mercy is to “Feed the Hungry.” There is a great need in the community for food for those less fortunate. Immediately following Mass, on Thanksgiving Day, volunteers of the parish sort and personally deliver the food. What better way to give thanks to God for our blessings than through worshipping at the Eucharist and sharing the bounty with those less fortunate. If you could help us on Tuesday, November 25, or Thanksgiving day, please fill out and return the form at the bottom of this page. Please bring your gifts of food to the church and place them in the barrels around our altar on Thanksgiving Day or bring the food to the rectory during the week.


Christmas Signs Sponsored by the CMA

Please join us in spreading the word that "Jesus is the Reason for the Season". For only $8 ($10 with the yard stand) you can purchase a Christmas sign that will let passersby know that "Jesus is the Reason for the Season - Merry Christmas" or "Wise Men Still Seek Jesus". If your community doesn't allow for signage in windows or yards, not to worry! For a $10 donation ($20 for both) we will post the signs in front of and around our Church for all the community to see this Christmas season and for many seasons to come. The signs will be available in the Resource Center and after all Masses. Thank you for your support. If paying by check, please make check payable to Light of Christ. For more information, please contact a CMA member.
