Any homemade Christmas cards –with prayers and positive thoughts can also be included.

We need to spread the JOY of Christ to all we serve.

Simple Gifts of Warmth and Love

Winter is upon us! As we don heavy coats, turn the furnace up a few degrees, and snuggle under our blankets, many of our brothers and sisters will search for warmth and shelter.

During this chilly season, we offer opportunities for individuals or families to donate toward the purchase of blankets, socks, hats, gloves and mittens which we donate to shelters.

If you or your family would like to donate toward our GIFTS OF WARMTH, simply place any amount you wish in the boxes provided in the narthex. This is a wonderful gift for even small children to give because a few coins from many “little ones” can be added together to purchase a pair of socks or gloves. The boxes will be available December 7- January 4.  Monetary donations can be dropped off in front office Attn: Kim Houseman. Peace

Northland family planning news

Prayer Date:  SaturdayDecember 6th

Please join us for peaceful Pro-Life prayers outside Northland Family Planning Clinic on Saturday, December 6th.  As we prepare at Advent for the Birth of Our Lord, let us pray for parents and expectant parents – that they may always trust in God, and for children – that they receive God’s gifts of life and love.  Prayer begins outside the clinic (located at 3810 17 Mile Road – just west of Ryan Road) at 11:30AM and should last about an hour (rain, snow or cold.)

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, decorations, etc. would be up to you. The items should be gift-wrapped and tagged, and delivered to the family’s parish by December 20. 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. Email Carolyn Plague or call her at (586) 557-3745 for more information.

Giving Tree Tag Preparation

We will be making tags for the annual Advent Giving Tree on Monday, November 24 in the Social Hall at 6:30 p.m. If you would like to help and have paper punches or scissors, please bring with them you.

Thank You!
