The sale officially is being held in St. Mary’s Hall just behind the rectory on 12/16/2012 from noon until 3 p.m. But we will have some trays assembled for sale Sunday, 12/9/2012 at the same time. On the 9th we are hosting the St. Alphonsus Roman Catholic Church confirmation class at the 10 a.m. Divine Liturgy followed by a video presentation on Eastern Catholicism.

Also the cookies just may show up at the Carmel Winter Market on Saturdays 12/8 and 12/15 from 9 a.m. until noon.
