Christmas Eve Reception
One of everybody's favorite parties of the year at Emmanuel takes place after the 11:00 p.m. Mass on Christmas Eve. It's a festive celebration of the Incarnation of God in Christ for us, as well as a time when we get to show Christian hospitality to lots of guests from the C-U community.
If you plan to be at the late-night Mass on the 24th, please bring a finger food (sweet or savory) to share - ideally on a serving plate. Parishioner Adam Morrisette is heading up the reception this year, and he could still use two or three more helpers. If you can lend a hand please contact Adam at 217.721.1851, (call or text).
From the 10:30 concert, to the Mass where we hear the Good News of Jesus' birth, to the champagne and treats, Christmas Eve at Emmanuel is truly special.
