The Giving Tree is put up the first Sunday of Advent. Tags of desired gifts are place on the tree for needy families in the area that will be provided both food and gifts by the St. Vincent de Paul Society. Each tag indicates the desired gift and the gender and age of the person for which the gift is given. This is accomplished with the help of parishioners and other contributors within the community. The gifts are sorted, bagged, and delivered along with food by our St. Vincent de Paul organization and parish volunteers, days before Christmas. For information call the Parish Office 738-1014.
