Throughout Advent

We decorate our Christmas tree at the back of the church with new, warm clothing items such as toques, gloves, and scarves - either bought or handmade. These items are then collected for distribution to help out those in need. Please bring your contributions to church throughout Advent and add them to our tree.

We will also be decorating St. Mary's with poinsettias donated by the congregation. Those who wish to contribute a poinsettia may drop them off Saturday morning between 9:30 and 10:00 when the Altar Guild is preparing for Sunday or bring them early before the service Sunday morning. Please do not leave them outside as they will not survive.

Christmas Outreach

This December St. Mary's is supporting three programs for Christmas Outreach:

Please use your offering envelope to make a donation by writing Christmas Outreach on the bottom line. We need to receive your donations by Sunday Dec. 17 so that our gifts can be delivered Dec. 18 - 20. Thank you for making Christmas a happier time for others.
