Christmas Eve and Christmas Day are perhaps the busiest days of the year at St. Anthony on Lake. Over the course of two days our volunteers and staff will be greeting and serving hundreds of people, parishioners and visitors alike, all here to celebrate the birth of our Lord.
The celebration begins with a service of Lessons and Carols, held Sunday evening, December 18, 2022 at 4 p.m., presented by the Choir.
Christmas Eve begins with “Three at 3”. Three Masses all beginning at 3 p.m. in three different locations.
The Main Church with Fr. Tony Zimmer and the Brass Choir
The Parish Life Center with Fr. Ken Knippel
The Parish Activity Center (Gym) with Fr. Ted Lawson
Please note that extra chairs will not be set up in the Gathering Space this year, and extra parking will be available on the lower soccer field. Follow the parking attendants as you arrive. Volunteers will be on hand to guide visitors to different areas of the building that they may not be familiar with.
Masses continue in the Main Church at 5 p.m. with Fr. Ted Lawson, and the string ensemble, at 10 p.m. Fr. Tony, with the Parish Choir, Woodwinds, and the Brass Choir.
Christmas Day Masses are held in the Church at 8 a.m. with Fr. Tony and 10 a.m. (this Mass will be live streamed) with Fr. Ted, the Parish Choir, and the Handbell Choir.
All the Masses with be preceded by Prelude Concerts and Christmas Caroling beginning one half hour before.
We want to make Christmas at St. Anthony on the Lake a welcoming experience for all, so take time now to plan ahead for what Mass you and your family would like to attend, and please arrive early to ensure your place.
Merry Christmas from your Parish Leadership Team!
