Advent Giving Tree
Please select a tag from the trees and purchase the requested item(s) for those in need. This year’s trees hold nearly 1,000 gift tags including multiple prayer tags. Please return items by Sunday, Dec. 10.
The gifts and requested items will be given to multiple families and many different organizations:
Members of the Human Concerns Committee will be sorting and distributing these items on Sunday, December 10th after the 11 am Mass. It is very important that all items are returned to church by that day to ensure timely deliveries. Please contact Cyndi at 414-531-4017 with any questions. The Human Concerns Committee thanks the many who will help to make this parish tradition a success.
