Our Lady of Grace Christmas Giving Tree:
Thank you to all the parishioners for their generosity again this year for all their donations for the Christmas Giving Tree. The gift cards have been distributed and will help many families in this very difficult time.
The students in our Faith Formation program and their families attended a drive through meeting last weekend. Msgr Ryan blessed our Creche, and blessed Baby Jesus that each family received to place in their home on Christmas morning. They also received an ornament of a nativity scene and star that they could make as a family to put on their tree, to prepare and celebrate with their family in preparation of the birth of Jesus on Christmas. The Faith Formation students also received activities and prayers to use with their families for Christmas to celebrate the Birth of Jesus on Christmas.

THE FRIEND OF JESUS PRAYER
Don’t walk behind me because I may not want to lead. Don’t walk ahead of me I may not want to follow. Walk aside me and be my friend!
Prayer is a powerful tool and I am sure many of you can witness to that, but if you have not been one to turn to prayer this will be a good place to start. A few months ago at a Family Mass we talked about the importance of prayer. We talked about starting a Prayer Walk and asked families to sign up to be part of our Prayer Walk. With the Prayer Walk we send you an email when we receive special prayer intentions. We have about 35 parishioners at this time signed up. If you would like to participate in this Prayer Walk you can sign up by sending us your name and email to email@example.com. We send out an email about once a month to everyone who signs up and we ask you to pray when we receive special prayer intentions.
Hope you will join us on our Prayer Walk! To follow us click here.
