Advent by Tailgating • Sunday, December 3 • 6:30 - 9:00 PM • Church Parking Lot • RSVP HERE
How else do Catholic men prepare for something as big as Christmas than by tailgating? St. Patrick is hosting a tailgating event to celebrate the Advent season and strengthen ourselves as men of faith. So come prepare yourself for the coming of Christ into the world with some friendship and festivities. Let’s encourage one another on our journey to becoming the best brothers, husbands, and fathers we can be. Please bring your own beverages and we’ll provide the chili dogs. There is no charge for this event. Please come dressed for the weather as we will be outside.
Please RSVP to Cyndi Barclay, 636-332-9225 ext. 234 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
