Tags from the Christmas Giving Tree program for Church of the Holy Family will be available on the tree in the church hall and the small trees in the vestibule. If at all possible, please return your gifts at weekend masses by December 9 to allow our recipient organizations extra time to sort and distribute them. The program supports these four organizations:
- Mom’s House – item listed on tag
- The Jail Ministry – with clothing, personal care products, puzzle books, and cards
- Birthright – items include clothing and bedding for newborns
- Catholic Charities – gift cards for $5 or $10 to Walmart, Target, or Boscov’s
Please attach the original tags to the outside of your gift. Do not wrap gifts except for those for Mom’s House. These tags will state “please wrap this gift.” Gift cards for Catholic Charities are to be returned in a separate collection at Mass.
In addition to the Giving Tree, we are again soliciting blankets for Birthright. Continuing a tradition at Church of the Holy Family, we are asking parishioners to provide receiving blankets for Birthright in memory of deceased members of our Human Development Ministry. Such extra generosity provides a beautiful, living tribute and shows our continued support of the choice of Life.
