Prime Timers Christmas Party
Food Buffet
Youth Spaghetti Dinner

December 7 and 8 was a fun-filled, action-packed weekend at Pax Christi!    The Silent Auction brought in $288, and $170 worth of items were sold. Proceeds help offset expenses for the youth to attend National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC).  Thank you for coming out to support them while enjoying a good meal with friends.  

At the Prime Timers Christmas Party where all enjoyed singing and dancing to music provided by Cindy Waters and members of her youth brass quintet featuring  John Baillio, Julia Walton, Andy Waters and Laurie Waters.

There also was a wonderful food buffet with drinks, and to top it all off, the lighting and the blessing of the advent wreath.

Dear Pax Christi,

What generosity…

Our 2019 paper drive was a success! 

We collected: 

1838 individual diapers

71 tissue boxes

525 bath tissue rolls

173 paper towel rolls

(also 1 package of table napkins, 8 bars of soap, and 16 packages of baby wipes!) They have already been delivered to the Nest, Arbor House, Greenhouse 17 and God’s Pantry.  Thank you to all!!

As you know, we are promoting overnight Eucharistic Adoration as part of our parish Day of Prayer for Peace. This time of Adoration will be from after Saturday Mass on January 11 until just before 8:30 Mass on the 12th. Next week we will have a sign-up poster in the lobby. We invite people to commit to praying for Peace by committing to a particular time period during the night. We will need to have at least two people in church at all times. Of course, we encourage individuals to sign up for a time, but we also are encouraging the various parish groups, committees and clubs to choose a time to be together in prayer.

At your group’s next meeting or gathering, please decide amongst yourselves to commit to a particular time. Your group could share a brief period of spoken prayer but most of the time would involve simply being together in quiet reflection.

Adoration can truly be an action of the whole parish. By having our various groups coming, even though at different times, we can truly witness to our parish’s commitment to praying for Peace; the peace that only our God can give.

Pax Christi was represented by 13 youth and 6 adults at this biennial event, which draws 20,000 Catholic youth from around the country to celebrate and learn about their faith!  Our Diocese had 79 youth and adults participating this year.  Christian music groups such as King and Country led a participatory concert.  Over 200 deacons, priests and bishops, including our Bishop John Stowe, celebrated Saturday night Mass on the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe.

Thank you to Pax Christi for supporting the annual Knights of Columbus Tootsie Roll Drive.  From your generosity, we were able to collect $1,300 to help support people with Intellectual Disabilities and Special Olympics of Kentucky. 

Advent is just around the corner, and we need your help!

The Arts & Environment Committee is in need of fresh greens from pine trees, boxwoods, holly bushes, and magnolia trees. If you have access to any of these and can cut some branches, please bring to church any weekend before Christmas.  We will incorporate them in the Advent wreath. For questions, call Martha Taulbee at (859) 309-1973.

Note:  There will be a regular Tuesday Mass on December 31st at 9:30 a.m.
