Advent Four, December 21st, 2014

Wet weather and the pre-Christmas hurtle make for about as seasonal a challenge as Southern Californians are likely to experience! Drive safely out there.

This coming Sunday sees our Annual Christmas Pageant at the 10am Liturgy, and Ms. Statdler and Mr. Seymour and many others have been hard at work! Come join the festivities!

Christmas Eve offers our usual 4:30pm Liturgy bent toward families with young children, and our not-so-late-as-once 9pm Festal Holy Eucharist. All just a week hence!

Venite Adoremus Dominum,
