November eNEWS for Boomers and Beyond
You are receiving this email as a way to keep you informed of the upcoming activities hosted by Pax Christi Boomers and Beyond Ministry. We hope you can join us and also invite your friends.
With this spectacular fall, here’s hoping you were able to take some car trips or walks to enjoy all the beautiful colors in and around the Twin Cities!
On Thursday, October 18, 27 Pax Christi members came together at Feed My Starving Children in Chanhassen. We—with many others from local schools, churches, and communities—packed 171 boxes of food that will feed 101 children in Honduras for a year! It was a very rewarding two hours spent scooping dry ingredients, pouring it into bags, measuring the exact amount, and packing the meals into boxes! Some in the group worked at tables making labels. The most fun was being a TEAM and getting excited when another box was finished. About 12 of us met afterwards for lunch and fun conversation at the close-by VFW. Hopefully more of you can join us next time!
See you for lunch and the Eden Prairie Theater play scheduled for Wednesday, November 14.

ANNUAL CHRISTMAS LUNCHEON
Saturday, December 15, 11:00am–1:00pm
“It’s that most wonderful time of the year” when we get together and celebrate the birth of Christ with family and friends. And so, the Boomers of Pax Christi are inviting all parishioners 55 and older to gather for good food, music, and friendship in the Hall of Martyrs. The menu includes an appetizer, ham, cheese potatoes, vegetables, rolls, coffee, or tea. The entertainment will be provided by Mr. Tim Patrick of the Blue Eyes Band, so come prepared to sing along to the music that made the 50s, 60s, and 70s — the music of our lifetime. As well as Christmas favorites. In addition, there will be a drawing for door prizes after the entertainment. Check-in starts at 10:30am with lunch in the Hall of Martyrs at 11:00am. Registration of $15.00 for Boomers and Non-Boomers must be received by December 7. Register by calling the RSVP line at 952-405-7251 or register online with credit card.
