       Christmas Sharing  2018    

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, can Christmas be far behind!  Please take a moment to consider finding a way to volunteer for our wonderful Christmas Sharing Program.  Parishioners continue to be extremely generous providing gifts and food for the families we serve in our community, support that is truly appreciated.  But there are many, many behind the scenes jobs as we assemble the Christmas Family Packs for each family.

There are lots of ways, at a variety of times, to offer support for this program.  You can put in as much or as little time as you have available.  And it’s a great way for EVERYONE in the family to participate.
