Our Giving Tree Angels were out last weekend and there are a few left. These angel tags represent children in our parish and local community who could use a little cheering up for Christmas. If you took a tag last week, please bring your gift in by next Sunday, December 15th so that we can get them out by Christmas. Don’t wrap your gift, but please include wrapping paper. Thank You and God Bless You for caring for these children for Christmas.
We sponsor a free monthly community dinner for those in need. If you wish to sponsor a monthly meal, please place your donation in an envelope marked Community Dinner and inside list a particular month if you wish and the name you wish displayed.
We are slowly inching closer to our goal. We have received pledges and gifts totally $42,000 or 73% of our parish goal. Please consider making a pledge or donation to the Appeal. Appeal envelopes are on the table in the Narthex and you can just drop off your pledges and donations in the Sunday basket or mail them directly to the Diocese.
We are presently taking brick orders to be installed in the Spring of next year. So if you wish to place a Memorial Brick along the path leading to the Shrine of Our Lady of Life, there are applications on the table in the Narthex. This is a beautiful tribute to remember a loved one or a special occasion in your life.
