Giving Tree

Dec. 11, 12 & 16, 2021 (gifts due back) – Each Advent, our parishioners are asked to help those who are less fortunate by anonymously purchasing gifts for them for Christmas. To help you help them, we contact some local organizations and ask what they need. Instead of a tree with labels to pick from, we are instead asking you to look over the below lists and select gifts to purchase.

Drop off your gifts in the Parish Hall

We ask that you drop off your NEW, unwrapped gifts in the parish hall on the below dates:

  • After all Masses the weekend of Dec. 11th and 12th
  • Between 6–7pm in the parish hall on Wednesday Dec. 16th

** Please Donate only NEW items! **
