St. Vincent De Paul Society ‘Christmas Star Program’

Once again, the St. Vincent De Paul Society is displaying a Christmas Tree in our Church, with dangling stars. Each star represents a gift that  can be purchased for either a teen, (gift card), or family, (food gift card).  Please take a star, and return it, with the appropriate  gift card to one of our St. Vincent De Paul representatives, (donation box holders), after Masses, by Sunday, December 9, 2018

Gift cards can be purchased at any major department store or pharmacy.  Food gift cards can be purchased at all major grocery stores.

Thank you for giving to those in our community who are less fortunate!

As in previous years, during the months preceding the great ‘Feast of the Nativity of Our Lord’, Right to Life Christmas Cards and Campaign Life fruitcakeswill be on sale in the vestibule after Saturday and Sunday Masses starting this weekend.  One of the most important fundraisers Campaign Life Catholic does each year, is the sale of the delicious Christmas cakes made by the Monks of Notre Dame Abbey.  This helps to continue the work for the unborn, the elderly and the disabled, supporting life at every stage.
