A very special invitation to celebrate Christmas with us!
I am one to believe that every season deserves its time and attention. However, in order for everything to come out well we need to plan in advance.
Last year we had the opportunity to celebrate our very first Christmas Party and, as a parish family, it was a great event! The common feeling one of: “we had a great time!”
The date we have reserved for this year’s parish Christmas Party is Sunday, December 3, 2017 at 6:00 PM.
Considering the amount of time it takes to organize such an event we believe that we are not getting ahead of the great seasons of Advent and Christmas. Therefore, now is a good moment to start planning and to start buying your tickets for our Christmas Party.
The location will be the same--The Brownstone—close to our parish.
The price will be $45 for adults and $25 for children 12 and under. It is worth noting that this is not a fund-raising event. Our primary goal is to build up community and to spend a good time as a parish family.
Tickets are ready for purchase as of now! If anyone wishes to sit with specific people, friends or family members, you are kindly asked to buy your tickets together, with a maximum of 10 people per table.
We have reserved the largest room at the Brownstone; however, in case we need extra space we will have to request the space outside of the Grand Ballroom; therefore, please buy your tickets well in advance so you can reserve a good place. We thank you, wholeheartedly, for considering celebrating Advent and Christmas with your parish family.
Events such as this one, wherein we celebrate as a parish family, fill me with great joy since, often times, despite participating at Mass Sunday after Sunday we not always get the opportunity to spend more time amongst ourselves. By taking part in this “small party” we are not only giving ourselves the opportunity to get to know each other better but also of strengthening our bonds of friendship.
Thank you for considering participating in this great event with your family!
With God’s favor, I know we will have a GREAT time! (Conntinue . . .) In Spanish Translation
