Please remember Fred Wimmer and his family in your prayers. May the kingdom of heaven be his.

HOLY DAY MASSES: There will not be an 8:00 AM Mass on Christmas Day. Masses for Christmas are as follows: Christmas Eve: 4:00 PM and Midnight. Christmas Day: 10:00 AM and Noon

CHRISTMAS FLOWER MEMORIAL: The 10:00 AM Mass on Christmas Day is said for all of our deceased relatives and friends. If you enrolled them in the Christmas Flower Memorial, you not only remembered them in a special way, you also have a part in the beautiful flowers in Church this Christmas Season.

JOIN THE ST. BONIFACE CLERGY, CHOIR AND CONGREGATION as they celebrate the arrival of Christmas with Midnight Mass. Be inspired by the joy, sights and sounds of Christmas, beginning with carols at 11:30 p.m. on Christmas Eve. All are welcome!

DO YOU SEE THE CRIB IN THE SANCTUARY? Do something nice this Advent Season for someone homebound or in a nursing home: send a card or take a gift to the person whose name you picked. Spread the joy of Christmas!

THE ST. VINCENT DE PAUL FOOD PANTRY served 92 Northside families consisting of 137 adults, 126 children and 24 seniors this Thanksgiving. Some items were depleted before the last few clients were able to get registered and come through the pantry, but all got food. The SVDP Conference extends a big Thank You to all our parishioners who helped make Thanksgiving a bit better for so many of our neighbors.

PARISH OFFICE CLOSED: The Parish Office will be closed for the Christmas weekend from 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, December 24 through 8:30 a.m. Monday, December 29.

EXPRESS CHRISTMAS WISHES TO FR. LAMMEIER: In the back of church there are three big poster boards that you can sign and express best wishes to Fr. Lammeier.

JUST A REMINDER: The ladies will not be having their meeting this month. They wish all a very Merry Christmas! See you all in January!

THE HEALTH AND WELLNESS MINISTRY will do Blood Pressure Screenings next Sunday, December 28th after every Mass. Having it checked will ensure that you are heart healthy for the holidays. Be sure and check the vestibule of church for some interesting material on stress and mental health.


WE WISH YOU a very blessed and joyful Christmas season. We thank you for your gifts and cards and also the kindness you have shown to us during the year. To all of our parishioners, we pray the New Year will bring you much love, joy, hope and peace.
God Bless you!

Father Joe and the Staff of St. Boniface.
