The annual Mary’s Feast is a joyful event in which to participate and a wonderful opportunity to connect with other women as we begin Advent leading up to Christmas. The evening allows us to be in fellowship with other women and grow closer to each other as well as to God as we consider the gift that God gave us in the birth of his son, Jesus. And Mary’s Feast is also a chance to serve God, here in our community by supporting under resourced military families at Pendleton through San Clemente Military Family Outreach (SCMFO). Each guest is invited to bring unwrapped baby items to the event, which are used for a baby shower in January for young, expectant military mothers. For more information, contact Karen Muscariello.
