Announcements Sunday Dec. 16, 2018

During Advent altar boys & girls will collect money at the church doors after Sunday masses . There will also be sale of “gløgg” after high mass. The  money will go to improve the rights of girls living in Uganda & DR Congo.

The parish has put together a beautiful calendar for 2019 with information about Holy days & festivals throughout the Church’s year in Norwegian, Polish & English. It is on sale after high mass, evening mass, all national group masses & at the parish office. Price kr.100. Proceed go towards the restoration of the church & private apartments. We hope every family in the parish will buy a calendar.

During Advent we prepare ourselves to remember the birth of God’s son & to anticipate his second coming. The runup to Christmas is a time of joy, of generosity & to think of other people. We ask you all to remember the church in your prayers & if possible give a donation. This year has been an expensive year for our parish because of necessary repair work so all contributions towards the restoration work are very welcome. You can use VIPPS, the bank terminal at the back of the church or the parish bank account: 3624.34.83098.

The Holy Three Kings Day (Epiphany) party will take place in the school gym hall on 6th January from 12.30 pm to 3 pm.

The parish is arranging a youth camp at Kvamskogen during winter holiday. Brochures are available at the back of the church.

Fill in the registration form, which is available at the back of the church, & hand it in to the parish office or in the sacristy after mass. It is also possible to register by SMS.
