Memorial Ornaments

We will be selling Memorial Ornaments in the Gathering Space the weekend of December 5/6.

We will record the name of your loved one and inscribe on the bulb. The bulbs will hang in the church until January and you can pick them up then. Cost $3 per ornament, one name per ornament.  This is also a fundraiser for Gifts of Warmth, all proceeds to go buy blankets for our local shelters.

Adopt a Family for Christmas

Helping a needy family have a Merry Christmas is a wonderful way to experience the true meaning of Christmas. When you adopt a family for the holidays, you receive their names, ages, sizes and a need/wish list.

We ask that you purchase an article of clothing for each person, plus a toy for each child, and groceries (or a gift card) for Christmas dinner. Anything beyond that, such as additional toys and clothing, household items, etc. would be up to you. The items should be gift-wrapped and delivered to the family’s parish by December 20th. You may also deliver the gifts to the family’s home.

There’s plenty of time to shop sales and provide Christmas for another family without breaking your budget. Please consider sharing with a family in need. Call or email Carolyn Plague at (586) 557-3745, or moc.l1448863688iamg@1448863688eugal1448863688pmc1448863688 for more information.
