Liturgical Coordinators' Gathering - November 7, 2006

No doubt you are aware the Fourth Sunday of Advent and Christmas Eve fall on the same day this year. At our next Liturgical Coordinators' Gathering, we will discuss some methods for staying sane and maybe even finding time for prayer!

Tuesday, November 7, 2006

You will come away from this meeting with:

  • Six simple environment strategies for shifting from Advent to Christmas;
  • Sample bulletin announcements to encourage households to celebrate both Advent 4 and Christmas with the parish community;
  • A chart of how other parishes are scheduling liturgies on this busy weekend;

Come find out how others are handling these issues and bring your own questions, concerns, and ideas.
