Christmas Week Daily Prayer
Monday, December 21-Wednesday, December 23
All Zoom Morning and Evening Prayer services will be as scheduled. See parish calendar for times and links.

Christmas Eve, Thursday, December 24, between 4 pm and 8 pm
Stations of the Manger
Come on Christmas Eve to walk through our Stations of the Manger art display that has been slowly building through the four weeks of Advent. On this holy night, the display will end at the Manger, where you may visit the Christchild like the shepherds and angels did two thousand years ago. After walking through the display and listening to live music, we’ve arranged for a festive bonfire in the parking lot. We’ve been advised not to hand out food, but if you’d like to bring a thermos of your favorite hot beverage, feel free. Come masked and prepared to socially distance.

Christmas Day, Friday, December 25, 4-5 PM
Cookies and Company
Come to a virtual get together on Christmas afternoon with the rector. Bring a cookie or cocktail to fortify you as we share an hour together on this special day. Come prepared to show us your favorite ornament, tell us about your best Christmas treat, or to share something that has brought you comfort during this extremely strange year. The Zoom link will be on the church calendar.

First Sunday of Christmas, Sunday, December 27
Lessons and Carols
The Diocese of Milwaukee is providing a Christmas Lessons and Carols service at 10 am on the First Sunday of Christmas. This should be a festive service of well-known carols and Christmas cheer. Sara will include the link in our Weekly Happenings email newsletter. There will be no coffee hour on this Sunday.

Daily Prayer Hiatus, Monday, December 28-Friday, January 1
During this week, daily prayer will not be offered. It will resume on January 2, at 7 pm, with Compline. Details in the church calendar.

St. Mark’s Annual Meeting will take place after the Sunday Zoom service. It will be an abbreviated, online annual meeting. We will need to elect vestry members, diocesan convention deputies, and to receive the 2021 budget.
