The Magna Campana Handbell Choir and the Bells of St. Timothy's handbell choir will perform a concert of Christmas music at St. Timothy's in The Villages on Friday evening, December 11 at 7:00 PM. This is the second time these two handbell choirs have performed together. The program will include some traditional Christmas music as well as some secular and humorous songs. Magna Campana is in its third year of operation. The ringers come from a variety of church and community handbell choirs in Lake and Sumter counties. They are conducted by Jeffrey Shaw, Music Director of St. Paul's Church in Leesburg. The Bells of St. Timothy are part of the Music Ministry at St. Timothy and are under the direction of Melanie O'Donnell, Assistant Director of Music at St. Timothy. Come out and enjoy the unusual treat of hearing two bell choirs performing together. Tickets are $5.00 each and are on sale from 9:00 AM until NOON in the Parish Hall.
Our giving tree for the poor and needy in our area will be up for the weekend of November 14/15th in the Narthex. For those who do not use this entrance, there will be tables set up in the North and South entrances with tags on them. Each tag will have a number identifying the family, the first name and age of the child. Each child will have a total of 4 tags on the tree, which includes: two (2) separate tags for clothing; a tag for a shoe gift card; and a tag for a gift card or toy of their choice. It is very important that you tape the tag with the information face up on the top of the wrapped package or attach to the bike, then place them under or near the tree in the Narthex. We request that once you take a tag, please make a copy of it, or write down the information, as we have no way to track lost tags without the family number and child’s name. Also, it would be very helpful if each tag has a gift receipt enclosed in case the family needs to exchange the item or in the case of gift cards’, an activation confirmation and Inquiry receipt for Payless gift cards. The gifts need to be returned to the Giving Tree No later than Wednesday, December 9. Thank you for your generosity in supporting this most worthwhile project. If you have any questions, please contact Peggy Harrop at (352) 753-1455.
