BIRTH OF A KING CELEBRATION — SAVE THE DATE!


Please join us for the Northern Butler County “Birth of a King” celebration. This event is intended for pre-school through 4th grade children, and their families, as we joyously prepare for Jesus’ birth. We will begin with a special Mass on Friday, December 13th at 6:00 pm at St. Christopher (please note the change in day and time).


Following Mass, all will be invited downstairs for a “Birthday Party” for
Jesus. Children will be asked to help throughout the Mass and are preparing and practicing during their Religious Education classes. The second grade class was also asked to answer the question, “ What would you give baby Jesus?”, which the children will respond to as part of the Birthday Party!  We hope that all of our young families can join us for this celebration!
