It's December!
Cookies and Carol Sing: 
December 10 from 3 - 5 p.m., all are invited to the Rectory (1501 Ridge Avenue) for an afternoon of Christmas carols, cookies, cocoa and coffee. Please bring a plate of cookies to share - and feel free to bring a friend or two. . . also, there are rumors that St. Nick may be stopping by!
It's Mitten Tree time!   
Please help decorate the Christmas tree in the parlor with new gloves, mittens, and other cold weather gear (hats, scarves, socks, etc.)  Gear for children will go to ESCCA (Evanston School Children's Clothing Association) and adult gear will go to Interfaith Action of Evanston's Hospitality Center clients. Donations will be collected until the end of December.
