Announcements (December 24, 2006)

1. Our two-bit collection this Sunday is Catholic Community Services. Catholic Community Services provides hope for hurting children, vulnerable families and elders in our community and throughout Western Washington. You may also use the envelope contained in the bulletin to make your contribution. Through Catholic Community Services Partners in Service Program, 25% of your gift will be returned to Holy Family Parish and will be used to support our parish Birthright.

2. Youth from Holy Family Parish and beyond will be participating in an all-night Eucharistic Adoration in the Ailbe House this Tuesday evening, December 26, and ending on Wednesday morning with the celebration of Mass. High School Students and young adults are welcome to participate. Please contact Fr. Bloom, Todd Aylard, Rachel Fox or Adam Fox for further information.
