November at IC 2011

IC’s Service Commission is sponsoring a sock drive throughout the whole month of November, to benefit the children at Good Shepard Children and Family Services in University City.  There are currently about 125 foster kids in the care of Good Shepard, from infants to the age of 21 and they need all kinds of socks.  All socks are being collected in the box in the back of church.

Thanksgiving Mass will be held at 9:00am on November 24th.  Families are encouraged to bring an item that they will be serving at their meal to be carried in the entrance procession and blessed during Mass.  Please join us!

Need to get some Christmas shopping done?  Black Friday, November 25th, we are hosting a Parent’s Day Out  from 2-4pm in the LaSalette Room.  Drop your kids off for a movie and get some secret shopping done!  Email Cori at nationscori@yahoo.com for more info.

The Advent Wreath Potluck will be held on November 27th at 4:00pm in the Parish Hall.  All are welcome!  Bring a dish to pass and your wreath base.  Greens, candles and ribbon will be available for creating a family advent wreath.  A short wreath blessing service will be held after dinner.  Call the rectory at 645-3307 if you need a wreath base.

The Giving Tree will be up in the church starting the weekend of November 26/27.  Please pick one or more tags off the tree to help provide a gift or food item for a local MRH Early Childhood family.
