  1. I just wanted to add that all the Catholic Churches in town will have several masses offered on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. The local Catholic Churches are St. Mark on Eastwood Rd, St. Mary in downtown Wilmington, St. Therese at Wrightsville Beach, Immaculate Conception on Carolina Beach Road, St. Jude in Hampstead, and St. Joseph in Burgaw. For the listing of Mass schedules, call the parish offices. I’m looking forward to celebrating this joyous and holy season at a Christmas Eve Mass with my family! Merry Christmas!

  2. Thanks so much Tracy and a Merry Christmas to you!
