“For it is in giving that we receive.” – St. Francis of Assisi

Saturday, December 10th and Sunday, December 11th  

While we prepare for the coming of our Savior this Advent season, please remember to share the good news of Jesus Christ and His Gospel. Our goal is not only to provide gifts for children, but to incorporate the true meaning of Christmas in everything that we do.

During the Presentation of Gifts, parishioners are invited to bring up new gifts for children and teens and set them by the altar. Your generosity will ensure that children throughout the archdiocese will experience God’s love poured out for all!

Please click here if you would like to volunteer.  We need sorters, traffic attendants, and helpers to distribute bicycles and large stuffed animals.

We ask you to please come to St. Jude Hall on Sunday, December 11th by 6:45 p.m.  We will give some general instructions to everyone at this brief meeting.  Once the 5:30 p.m. mass is over and the parishioners have left the church, we will be allowed inside the church to begin our work.

Please label each new gift with the age & gender of the child for which it is appropriate.

“And going into the house they saw the child with Mary, his mother, and they fell down and worshiped him. Then, opening their treasures, they offered him gifts, gold and frankincense and myrrh.” ~ Matthew 2:11
