December Christmas Events at St. Mary’s Manahawkin
Once again we are preparing our annual Christmas Book. We are accepting entries of jokes, stories, original writings and poems. Submissions should not be too long and, of course, appropriate for the parish to read. To allow time for printing, the deadline is November 28. Thank you.
Our annual Christmas Breakfast will take place on Sunday, December 4, 9:00am in the Parish Center. We will have our usual delicious breakfast buffet, and CHILDREN 10 AND UNDER ARE FREE! In addition to breakfast, the religious education program is sponsoring “Christmas stations” for the children and their families in the different rooms of the Parish Center. There will be a visit from Santa Claus and the opportunity to take family photos dressed in the clothes of the Holy Family.
There are still tickets available for the Christmas Concert with the Orchestra of St. Peter by the Sea. Father Alphonse is returning to conduct. The concert is Friday, December 16, 7:30pm, in St. Mary of the Pines. Seats are reserved by row and tickets are $28.00 per person. For information and sales, please call Dot Karabin at 698-4242.
