At Christmas time every year, Christmas trees are placed in both the Downtown and Crane Road churches as a way of sharing with those who are struggling because of poverty or difficult times. Ornaments describing gift items are placed on the trees. Parishioners then buy the gift and return it to the church location ornament was taken from, with the ornament attached, left in gift bags if possible or unwrapped. Gift cards can be placed in the collection plate or dropped off at the parish office on Crane Road between the hours of 8 am to 4 pm, Monday through Friday.  We would appreciate if All gifts be returned by Sunday, December 15th. Parishioners then sort and deliver the gifts with the love of Christ. For more information on this ministry please contact Wendy at wbialek@live.com.
