Advent at St. Clare’s

December began with a celebration of St. Nicolas at the 10:15 a.m. Family Service on December 6. The children helped bring forward the presents donated in the Daughters of the King gift drive for Tri-Valley Haven and Shepherds Gate, and Father Ron took the role of the good bishop and handed out chocolate coins to all on the way out!

That same evening, we celebrated Advent Lessons and Carols, let by St. Clare’s Parish Choir and the Amador High School String Quartet. Afterward, we enjoyed a Mexican feast of Tamales with beans and rice.
