Christmas and Advent at St. Mary's

Every December a Christmas tree is set up at the back of the church. Parishioners are asked to bring donations of new gloves, toques, scarves, socks, etc. to decorate this tree. Prior to Christmas these will be distributed to those in need.

We are also collecting donations for Senior Services, Elizabeth Fry (women’s services), and St. Barnabas’ Outreach. Simply include your contribution in your offering envelope and indicate it is for Outreach on the front.

Parishioners are also invited to bring poinsettias to decorate the church throughout Advent.
