CHRISTMAS PAGEANT – Each year we have a Christmas Pageant on Christmas Eve! The pageant begins at 3:30pm in the Parish Hall, December 24th. First Graders have preference for the main parts, but all Pre-K and Kindergarten children will be considered for the parts as angels and shepherds. Main parts will be chosen by a drawing. The main parts include, Mary, Joseph, the Angel Most High, and three Wise Men. All children (ages 5 and older) are most welcome and needed in the choir! Pageant practice will be on Monday, December 18 at 4:30pm in the Parish Hall. (Snow date: Thursday, December 21, at 4:30PM.) Registration forms are available in the faith formation office or online under Parent’s Corner. We must have the form in order to have their names placed in the drawing for main parts. Deadline: December 10. If you interested in helping with the pageant, please email Andrea@olfparish.com.
