Following the Roman tradition of family’s bringing the Christ Child figure to the Vatican to be blessed by the Pope at the Sunday Angelus on the Third Sunday of Advent, Divine Mercy parishioners (not just children) are invited to bring their Nativity figures or just the Christ Child figure to Mass on the weekend of December 15/16, 2018 for the same special blessing.

School-age children (ages 5 and above) are invited to participate in the Christmas Eve 4:30pm Family Mass in a very special way! If your family and/or child would like to participate in the Christmas Eve Family Mass, please sign up here.

Please provide your child’s name and age and best way to contact you. We are in need of angels, shepherds, animals, Wise Men, the Holy Family, readers, Christmas banner family and singers for the children’s choir.

There will be a rehearsal on Sunday, December 23rd at 10am following the the 9am Mass at St. Stephen Church. Please note that the Children’s Choir will have additional practices – more information will follow.

If you have any questions, please contact Suzanne Hamling by email or call 203-234-1597.
