The Giving Tree will be set up in the church right after Thanksgiving! Please support this annual and beloved parish tradition. It’s as easy as:
- Taking a colorful gift tag from the tree in the church. Gift tags will be hanging until all are taken.
- Purchasing a brand-new and age-appropriate gift for a boy or girl.
- Returning gifts, UNWRAPPED and with the tag attached, when you come to church on the first and second Sundays of Advent — on December 2nd and no later than December 9th — so that Catholic Charities of Brooklyn and Queens can distribute them in time for Christmas. Leave all unwrapped gifts under the tree in the church.
Tip: We want to make a special effort to have gifts for older children and teens, ages 13–18. Awesome gifts for tweens and teens include new gift cards from stores such as the Gap, Old Navy and Game Stop; sports stuff; arts supplies; backpacks; and movie passes. Please give a thoughtful gift that is purchased new (no hand-me-downs, no partially used gift cards) and that will make someone’s Christmas brighter!
