Saint Mary’s Giving Tree – COVID Style

Normally, at this time of the year, we put up our Christmas tree and decorate it with tags for local agencies that have members in need.

However, with the pandemic this year, we have modified the program for everyone’s safety. This modification will allow us to still give a gift for others in need, but in a simplified fashion. We are asking that you purchase a gift card listed below. Please put it in an envelope labeled with the name of the organization that you would like the gift card to go to. You can drop the envelopes in the basket at mass or in the mailbox outside the church office. We will run the program this weekend through December 5th. Please drop off your gift cards by December 5th.
