Christmas Sharing Tree
As we approach the season of Christmas, we delight in our ability to bring joy to others through gift giving. Every year at this time, a wonderful spirit fills the air in our Church.
There are exclamations of surprise and joy when people see the abundant array of gifts that have been delivered here. There is a sense of awe that such generosity exists among our parishioners. We are a blessed people, and we bless others with our goodness.
You are invited to select an ornament from the Sharing Tree, and purchase the gifts requested on the tag. Most tags have several choices. You may choose what to give. Please include gift receipts if appropriate.
TAPE THE TAG securely to the outside of the gift. Return it to Church when you come in for Mass. All gifts must be returned on the specified weekend to allow sufficient time for families to pick up.
How glorious our Christmas celebration becomes as we present to God and his people both our spiritual and material gifts!
May God fill your hearts and home with joy this Christmas Season. Thank you for your generosity and goodness.
SHARING TREE WILL BE PLACED IN THE CHURCH ON NOVEMBER 20TH
