Christmas Poinsettias: If you would like to help in providing flowers for the Christmas season, red colored poinsettias would be most welcomed. If you would like to donate a plant in memory or honor of a loved one, please have it to the cry room any time after Masses on Sunday, Dec. 20th but no later than noon on Wednesday, Dec. 23rd. If a monetary donation is given in memory or honor of a loved one, place it in the collection box or deliver it to the parish office.

The Social Justice Committee Thank You! Your very generous response to Angel Tree provided 120 Christmas gifts for children. We served 24 prisoners' children and 18 children from St. Vincent's Outreach. We sent Christmas cards to 17 prisoners and 15 Christmas cards and gift cards to caregivers. Thanks to all who donated gifts, gave monetary support, helped wrap, provided snacks, delivered gifts or helped in any way!
Retirement Fund for Religious: For those receiving envelopes a special envelope to be used for this collection is included in your Dec. packet. For those using ACH, Religious retirement envelopes can be found in the boxes as you enter church. Your gift helps provide medications, nursing care, and more. Please be generous.
Gift Cards: Looking for a last minute Christmas gift? Gift cards are always a good choice and we have many to choose from. When you purchase a gift card, you also help out the parish! Gift cards can be located near the Brides room and are sold after most Masses. If you have never purchased before, the seller will be happy to help you.
