The Giving Tree, Christmas 2014
The St. Vincent de Paul Society of St. Peter's Parish is sponsoring "The Giving Tree." This is an opportunity for the entire St. Peter's Parish Family to help by sharing their gifts from God with others. Barren Branches will be set up in the upper and lower Church, decorated with tags. The tags reflect a gift request of a clothing or toy item. Each tag includes the age, gender and size if applicable. Parishioners are asked to select as many tags as they would like. Purchase the item or items, wrap and place, with the tag attached, under the tree prior to December 16th, This will enable us to complete our preparations for an efficient distribution of the gifts.
These “Barren Branches” will also serve as our Jesse Tree. As the tags are removed, Jesse Tree ornaments will replace them.
For those preferring the practice of recent years, we will continue to forward woolen items to the needy. Woolen items may be placed unwrapped in the containers near the trees. We hope all our parishioners will take part in the Christmas “sharing our gifts” with others. Thank you for your continued generosity
