THE GIVING TREEIf you are able to make a donation, please take a tag from the tree and sign it out on the list on the small table in the Social Hall. We are asking for all donors to return their new and wrapped gift, with the gift tag attached, to the Rectory Office, by Friday, December 14th. The gifts listed on the tags are suggestions – donors should feel free to change the gift on the tag to something that they think make be more appropriate for the age and gender of the child based on your experience buying for other children. Our December 14 deadline for return of the gifts to the rectory is to be sure we have enough time to pack and deliver the gifts for Christmas. Thank you for your generosity.  Please remember that if you do not return the gift, that person will not receive anything.

ONLINE GIVING:  The WeShare system is an automatic giving program that debits your credit card or bank account once or twice a month as you request and eliminates the use of envelopes.  Online giving is safe, simple, and convenient.  It benefits our parish by helping to streamline our administrative process and providing more accurate budgeting.  Please consider using the WeShare online giving system.  Click on  Give Online   for more information and registration.

FOR THE HOMEBOUND & HOSPITAL:  If you have a family or neighbors whom you know would like to receive Communion and/or have a visit  from Fr. Hugh, Fr. Frank, Sr. Donna, or a Eucharistic Minister, please call the Parish Office at 769-0025 and leave their name, address and phone number.
