Merry Christmas! The community of St. John Fisher has been busy this month preparing for the upcoming celebration of the Lord's birth! The church and the grounds have been decorated, the choirs have been practicing, we collected and distributed hundreds of gifts through the Giving Tree, and enjoyed a live Nativity plan during Advent Family Night. We're ready! Are you? Please join us in celebration of the Nativity of Our Lord! Masses on Christmas Eve will be at 4:00 p.m., 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. A concert of carols will begin 30 minutes before each Vigil Mass -- the Children's Choir will begin at 3:30, the Adult Choir will sing at 6:00 and the Knights of Columbus will begin at 8:00. These Masses are generally crowded, so you may want to arrive early to ensure seating for your entire family. Masses on Christmas morning are at 8:00 a.m., 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.
Let's not forget that January 1 is the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God, a Holy Day of Obligation. A Vigil Mass will he held on Monday, December 31, at 4:00 p.m.. Mass on New Year's Day will begin at 10:00 a.m., to give you a few hours to sleep in!
Father McDermott, Father Devlin, Deacon Daniel Bingnear and the entire staff of St. John Fisher wish you a Blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year!
