ST. MARY’S “ANGEL TREE”
This Sunday November 15 you will find a small tree with “angels” hung on the branches in the parish hall. Please select an angel from the tree to help create a brighter Christmas for the special people in need whom St. Mary’s serves in the inner city. The angel will have a specific gift wish or a request for a gift card. All of the gifts are going to St. Mary’s “Christmas Room” where parents will have the opportunity to select and wrap gifts from the donated items to give to their children. You can simply purchase a gift from the list rather than choose an Angel from the tree. Please bring your new gift unwrapped to the parish hall by Sunday, December 6th, or to the office by Monday. Dec. 7th.
A complete list of gift suggestions from St. Mary’s is also available in the church email by clicking the button below, & in the church entrance area. Wrapping paper and gift bags, and financial donations for Christmas food baskets are also welcomed. Thank you for sharing your blessings with those less fortunate this season. If you have questions, please call me at 642-2729 (hm), 742-1772 (cell), or 398-1229 (wk).
–Linda Kattman, Advocate for St. Mary’s.
