Sunday, December 17

At 4:30

Corpus Christi Parish Center

As we begin that week before Christmas,

we sometimes find that the excitement

of all the preparation of gifts, and dinners

and parties, can cause us to lose sight of

The Reason for this Season.

Join us as we go back to that most holy

time - the Annunciation, the Visitation and

the journey of Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem.

The Magi as they discover and follow the Star.

And the Nativity!

We will have chairs set up and carpets on

the floors. Feel free to bring extra cushions for

the chairs or floor. We will serve popcorn and

drink. Any cookie donations would also be

most welcome.

**The movie lasts 1 hour and 41 minutes

and will begin no later than 4:40 - once we are

all settled and ready!**
