Advent Tree

The Season of Advent is here, and with it comes our chance to help our needy brothers and sisters. Our Advent tree is located in the vestibule of the Church, with ornaments made by St. Bernard School children.

Christmas is a time for giving, and a time for sharing. We are reminded that we have so many things to be thankful for. It also makes us aware of those who have less than we do, or don't even have the basic necessities of life -- things that we often take for granted.

We are sponsoring several families from our Parish, who will not have Christmas, without a little help from us.

If you would like to share with someone less fortunate than yourself, please take an ornament from the Advent tree. Each ornament has a request for a Christmas gift. You may select as many ornaments as you want, and purchase the item listed on the ornament. Remember, you must purchase NEW items only. If you take an ornament, and do not purchase the gift, that recipient will not receive a gift, as only a specific number of ornaments are placed on the tree. If you find that you are unable to purchase the item after taking an ornament, please return the ornament to the tree as soon as possible, to allow someone else a chance to take it.

 

PLEASE DO NOT WRAP THE GIFT.

 

RETURN the NEW, UNWRAPPED GIFT with the ORNAMENT to the RECTORY, on or before SUNDAY, DECEMBER 17 2017.

 

Thank you for your continued generosity.

May God Bless You And Your Family During This Holy Season.
