Giving Trees at SVDP

Angel Tree at Sacred Heart Chapel
The Social Concerns Commission will again be sponsoring the Angel Tree Program for children whose parent(s) are incarcerated. This is a wonderful opportunity to help a child in need. Tags will have been made available already. Gifts are due back by December 11th. Please wrap them an include a tag with the information under the tree at Sacred Heart Chapel.

Advent Tree – St. Patrick Chapel
This year St. Patrick Chapel has adopted 13 families and 6 elderly or disabled persons.  We will have 36 children with two gift tags each.  Envelopes in the pews will be used to help offset the cost of the food baskets.  Please have the gifts wrapped with the original name tag attached to the gift and have the gifts under the tree by 9:00 am Mass on Sunday December 18th.  It would be a good idea to take a picture of your tags when you get them in the event that a tag gets lost.  If you are able to help pick up and sort food on Saturday, December 17th please contact Marge Watson, marbowat@yahoo.com or Tracy Lorenz at 660-826-1713.

Giving Tree at St. John’s
The trees will be up this weekend. Please specify when the gift is retruned if it goes to the Public Administrator or the Pettis County Assisted Living Facility. Gifts should be returned to the tree at St. John’s on December 17th.
