Post-Christmas Liturgy Breakfast

Hi all!

The Gascoignes would like to extend an invitation to all our St. Herman's family for a Christmas breakfast at our house after liturgy on Christmas Day.

We did this last year and it was a jolly event, and a lovely way to spend those hours before your pre-Christmas dinner nap time. We'll have the wood fire burning, the music playing, the bacon in the oven, and the eggs in the pan. It would be lovely if people could bring a few things to share, but the best thing to share is your presence.

Hope to see you all there!

Love Gascoignes

Holiday Fundraiser Initiative

I would like to help the youth group raise funds for their Winter Retreat by selling Christmas cards to the parish.

Cards would be ordered in advance and available for pick-up or distribution on Sunday December 19.

The price for individual cards is $3.50 or 5 for $15.00 (excluding the oversized card). $2.50 from the sale of each card will be donated back to the church for youth events, such as the Winter Retreat. The remaining funds will cover the cost of materials and time.

There are 6 styles to choose from. All cards are made with paper obtained from an environmentally sustainable paper mill and prices include envelopes. Photos can be mounted on red or green cardstock for an additional 25c/card (or $1.00 flat fee for groups of 5).

Many thanks for your participation in this fundraising initiative. Please feel free to speak to me directly if you wish to place an order or email us before Friday December 17.

Love in Christ, Peter & Macrina Hall
