Breakfast will consist of scrambled eggs, home fries, pancakes, sweet bread, and of course orange juice and coffee. The exact time of Santa's visit has not yet been determined. He has a busy schedule. Check back. We will have a photographer to take photos of the kids with Santa. Photos will be uploaded to the web so that you can print them at your convenience. We will also have a variety of Christmas crafts and activities. Tickets are $6.00 for adults and $3.00 for children ages 6-12. Children under 6 are free. Children need to be accompanied by an adult. Tickets are on sale after Mass, in the rectory, or from the Faith Formation Office after class. We need people to help with Breakfast with Santa. We especially need help in the Kitchen.
