Spirit of Christmas Committee needs your help!

23-Oct-2019

 

 The “Spirit of Christmas Giving Tree Committee” is already thinking about Christmas!!

We would like to give you some information on how our ministry works:

Through the generosity of our faithful parishioners and donors, we serve to aid members of our three St. Charles Communities as well as St. Charles School who may be in need of some assistance with Christmas gifts for their children under 16 years old.

Part of our mission this year is to make sure all of our parishioners and school families are aware of our program and how to apply should you need assistance.

Important information and deadlines:

Ø Open to families in need with children 16 years old and younger.

 

Ø Applications are available and  must be hand delivered to the parish center along with a photo to verify person picking up gifts,

 

Ø Deadline to return applications: Friday, November 15th.

 

Ø Christmas trees will be put in the upper & lower church on Friday, November 22nd.

 

Ø Deadline for parishioners & donors to drop off gifts after Mass or at the Parish Center is Sunday, December 8th..

 

Ø Something new this year: as you take a tag(s) off of the tree, there will be a “Memory Angel” for you to put a loved one’s name on. These angels will be on display in the upper church during Christmas Masses.

 

Volunteers to help with this ministry are always welcome. We will need help with bringing gifts to the Parish Center from the church after each Mass, sorting and bagging gifts by family number and getting gifts ready for the families to pick up. We will also need help on family distribution day.
