Nazareth Academy donated 40 boxes of cereal collected at their Powder Puff Game! Thank you!
Thank you to Jewel-Osco Countryside for donating Thanksgiving meals to many of our food pantry clients. We’re so grateful for this generous partnership, especially to all of you that participated by donating to the “Turkey Bucks” program, and for the volunteers who helped distribute meals to families in need.
This Advent, our Giving Tree outreach provides many opportunities for you and your family to respond to those in need, to ensure they receive their share of the richness of God’s gifts given to us.
PURPLE TAGS (gifts): Choose the gifts you wish to purchase, keeping in mind that the items listed on the tag are part of a “wish list.” You need not purchase every item on the list. Gifts are to be returned before/after Masses the weekend of December 8-9 to Morrissey Hall using the convenient drop off lane on Stone Ave.
WHITE ENEVELOPES (grocery gift cards): We respectfully request that you purchase cards for the exact amount listed on the card and then put the card(s) directly in the envelope. We also ask that you only purchase cards from Jewel and Walmart. Envelopes will need to be turned in by Sunday, December 9th at 12:30pm. They can be placed in the collection basket any week, dropped at the Parish Center or with the Gifts December 8-9.
GREEN TAGS (food pantry items): These tags list some of our most needed items at this time. Items can be returned at your convenience to the bins in the Church Narthex, any time before December 9.
We invite you to stop in the narthex this weekend to take a tag or two from one of the Giving Trees. We are thankful for your past generosity in purchasing many gifts for the individual(s) you choose. Thank you! Your generosity will provide hope and make a difference in someone’s life. God bless you on your Advent Journey!
