Christmas Eve Children’s Pageant Sign-up

Dear parents,

We’d love to have your children participate in our Christmas Eve Children’s Pageant. This year the pageant will take place prior to 4 o’clock Mass on Christmas Eve, Sunday, December 24, 2017. The pageant will begin promptly at 3:15 PM. Following the pageant, children will have time to change and return to their families for Mass. Our children’s participation and joyous presence are very important to our celebration! If you have a child that would like to be a part of our pageant, please sign-up as soon as possible. Be sure to fill out a separate form for each child that would like to participate. If you prefer, you can also download a print friendly form to return to the parish office.

Please list two preferred roles. Only older children will be selected for Mary, Joseph, and three kings roles. Any of these roles with multiple requests will be drawn from all interested children’s names.
