New Year's Eve

Is It Too Early to Think About New Year’s Eve?

Following 4 pm Mass we’d like to offer a fun, safe celebration of 2020.  We'd like to invite folks of all ages to a covered-dish supper at 5:00 PM in the Parish Life Center (PLC). Participants could bring cards and board & electronic games to enjoy, along with music we play on our wonderful new sound system.  At 8:00 PM, it strikes midnight in Lttoqqortoormiit, Greenland, the first place to celebrate New Year on the North American Continent.  So, with them, we’ll toast the New Year, then head safely home before the DUI traffic begins! If you are planning to attend, please RSVP to the Parish Office at 302-644-7300 by noon on December 22.
