Many of you might be interested in what Chrismon ornaments mean (A Chrismon is a monogram of Christ. All designs of Chrismon ornaments are symbols of Christ that have been passed down through the centuries of Christian History. They are made in white and gold. White symbolizes the purity and perfection of our Lord; gold symbolizes His majesty and glory.) I have attached a list of commonly used symbols and their meaning. We do not use all of these, but it gives you an idea of what things are. Please see the two graphics at the bottom.
Devotional booklets for the season are on the table at the entrance of the church. Please pick one up.
If you are a Lector/Reader and would like your Celebrate early to practice, please see me for a copy. I have them through the end of the year.
Secretary’s office hours are Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday ~ 900am to 1130am. I can always be reached on my cell phone 210-787-7000. Please leave a message as I usually don’t answer unknown numbers.
