THE GIVING TREE
In the upcoming Season of Giving, a beautiful Giving Tree containing decorative gift tags will be placed in the back of the church for the First Sunday of Advent. Parishioners are invited to take the gift tag(s) to purchase items for Christmas. Green tags are for the children at Hour Children in Long Island City. White tags are for those children from St. Mary, Star of the Sea in Far Rockaway, and Red tags are to be given to needy children by Unidos Latinos of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel parish in Astoria. Everyone is invited to participate in this year’s Giving Tree – children and adults. Feel free to take more than one gift tag. Join us in the approaching Season of Giving as we celebrate God’s gift of Jesus in our hearts & lives.
We ask everyone to return their wrapped gifts with the attached tag to church Sunday, December 15th, which we call GIFT SUNDAY. What a beautiful sight it will be with hundreds of wrapped gifts in the Baptistery and Altar area. God bless everyone for a Spirit of Giving!
