Happy Advent Everyone!! As we prepare for this most joyous season, Comunidad would like to invite you to our Christmas celebration which will be held on Tuesday, December 5th at 7:00 PM in the Fr.

The main dish will be provided and we encourage everyone to bring a yummy side dish or something sweet to share with the group. Also, to make Las Posadas a festive event for St. Matthew's youth please contribute a bag(s) of individually wrapped candy. We hope you are able to join us.
