The annual giving tree is available for you to pick a tag or two, purchase a gift that corresponds to the tag, wrap it and return under the tree. The last day to return wrapped/tagged gifts is Sunday December 18th so that they can be delivered before the holidays! Gifts are donated to St Peter the Apostle School, Our Lady’s House, Guiding Star Ministries, Lakeside School, and members of our own community in need. Thank you in advance for helping others experience joy this holiday season!
