Thanks to all who made this a special season: Fr. Jim and Deacon Connie; the musicians; the Altar Guild (Carol, Barrie, Clarisa, Betty and Helen); those who helped direct the Christmas Pageant (Mary, Arlene, Romona) and the children; those who gave to the flower fund, the Clothing Room, and the Food Pantry; and those who helped with the greening of the church.
