Starting in mid-November, and running through mid-December, committee members perform the following tasks: writing gift tags with name, age, gift request (mid- November); setting up the Giving Tree in the church vestibule; putting out written gift tags on the Giving Tree before Sunday Mass (both of these tasks are done the first Sunday of Advent); and collecting returned gifts after Sunday Mass (third Sunday of Advent). Giving Tree volunteers share in that true Christmas feeling of love and embody the spirit of our parish community. Parishioners share their Christmas spirit with local children and seniors in need by purchasing the items listed on the gift tags.
