Invite Someone "Home for Christmas"

There isn't a better time to invite someone to join us at Mass than at Christmas! Give the gift of Community during our Christmas liturgies: invite someone that you know to come with you to a specific Christmas Mass. And not just anyone, but a parishioner who doesn't or can't regularly attend Mass, someone who has drifted away, or even a neighbor who might appreciate being invited to come to Mass with you. This is an invitation to share the miracle of God's presence on earth in the birth of Jesus. We know the presence of Jesus turns hearts. All that is missing is the invitation to join us in that presence. Spread the word! St. John Vianney is our Christian home, and so we all want to invite someone home for Christmas.

Come, Rejoice and Participate

We are still in need of Liturgical Ministers for Christmas Masses. We especially need help at Christmas Eve: 3:00pm, 5:00pm, Midnight and Christmas 9:00am Masses. Please click here to sign up or contact Parish Secretary, Maryanne Richards, at 939-7911 ext. 0 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
