Fellowship in Faith for Families

Sundays at 10am

The Annual Christmas Pageant

The Christmas Pageant will take place at Christmas for Kids on December 24th at 4:00 PM. Auditions for speaking parts will be held during Fellowship in Faith on November 24. Speaking parts are available to any child who can comfortably read aloud. For more information, please feel free to contact Charlie Janoff at chancellor@incarnationgc.org.

If you have a little one who would make a supremely cute angel/cow/sheep but doesn’t yet read, there’s still a place for them! Our non-speaking roles only have one Saturday rehearsal before Christmas Eve, and all children are welcome to have fun and dress up with us to tell the story of Jesus’ birth. Just contact either Kate or Morgan if you’d like to sign up!

Save the Date: Advent Wreath Making

Celebrate the first Sunday in Advent on December 1 by making your own Advent Wreath as a family and hearing a story from a very special visitor!

Join our Canon Pastor, Father Michael Delaney, for conversation each Sunday during Fellowship in Faith at the Mercer School. For more information or to sign up, visit tinyurl.com/CathedralDiscovery2019

Spotlight On....

Altar Guild

The altar guild is a group of women and men organized in rotating committees who are responsible to set up for daily and Sunday communion services throughout the year. It is a wonderful opportunity to be “up close and personal” with all aspects of Holy Communion and be involved with this special part of the Mass. Other activities include decorating for major holidays and feasts such as Christmas and Easter and other special seasons.

Each committee typically serves once per month. Sunday services are usually set up on Saturday morning, involving about an hour. On Sundays, most committees organize amongst themselves to clean up/set up for the three services depending on which service they attend.

We welcome new members or, if you are just curious as to what we do, please feel free to contact Christine Le Sueur through Realm or introduce yourself to one of our dedicated altar guild members. Sign up sheets to get more info are also available at the Welcome Table this Sunday!
