It is Christmas Giving Tree time again! This is our annual gift-giving opportunity to share presents for children in low income families who will have a brighter Christmas with our gifts. In the past, we have collected nearly 1,000 presents per year which are distributed through our partner, St. Justin’s.
Starting the weekend after Thanksgiving, the tree will be in the vestibule by the Church entrance. Please take an “ornament” and bring a gift appropriate for the age and gender noted on the ornament. Presents should not be wrapped as the families are given the opportunity to pick the presents that they want – then they are wrapped.
Please bring your generous gifts and place them under the tree up until Sunday, December 11th, or to the Parish Office until Friday, December 16th when the presents will be taken to St. Justin’s for distribution.
Your generosity will definitely make a difference. In the past, parishioners have been extremely generous and we look forward to your continued support to this meaningful endeavor.
In addition, if you know of any needy families who could use gifts this year, St. Justin's will add names to their Christmas Client gift list starting on Wednesday, Nov 30 and take signups until Thursday, Dec. 8. Please contact the parish office or St. Vincent de Paul between those dates with any names for the list.
