EPIPHANY CHRISTMAS GIVING TREE
The traditional Epiphany CHRISTMAS GIVING TREE is being expanded to address the needs of our parish.
This year, the tree will not only include tags for children, but, tags for our homebound and senior community. These parishioners used to attend
Mass on a regular basis, but cannot attend now due to health or transportation issues. This year, we want these parishioners to know that we are also thinking about them during this special time of the year.
The trees will be setup in the entrance areas of the church on November 24th. All are invited to take a tag or two. Please know, it is not necessary to have a tag in order to drop off a gift at the Church Office and that gifts will be accepted prior to December 24th.
Thank you for making Christmas a special time for all!
