The Marion Giving Trees
As we soon celebrate the blessing of Thanksgiving and anticipate Advent, it is time to turn our attention to the Giving and Marion Trees. Last year was a wonderful year for many families because of YOU. The Giving Trees and Tags will be up at with cards to help those in the area who are in need. Please take a tag and return your gift by Sunday, December 8th.
Once again at the St. Germaine Campus, the Marion Giving Trees, will be in honor of Marion Krucek. Marion exemplified the spirit of giving in every aspect of her life. She loved this parish, and celebrating Christmas while experiencing the generosity of the parish community was one of her greatest joys. May her spirit of loving concern for others live in all of us this holy season.
This year with the current situation of Covid-19 we will be doing things a little differently, the Marion Giving Trees will be up beginning the weekend of November 21-22 and we will also have cards available at the Parish Center, on the Marion's Giving Tree Families page, or we can email or mail you a card. The trees will hold cards from our Courage Program, God’s Special Friends and our Adopt A Family (Families in Need) Program. Our parish families are always so incredibly generous. Each year, the cards are taken from the trees, and wonderful gifts are bought for all of our Courage moms, our Special Friends and our families. We hope that this year will be the same. We realize that so many of our parishioners have a little less this year, and it might be a little more difficult to share. If you are able to take a card from the trees, we will be most grateful. Saying “Thank you” doesn’t seem enough, but know that it comes with prayers of gratitude for all of our generous givers. May the baby, born in a manger, fill your Christmas with love, joy and peace. Merry Christmas !!!!!!!
Due to COVID, The COURAGE Program will not be able to have their annual Christmas Gala. At the Gala, the kids receive gifts that have been donated to us by parishes and organizations. Many of those donors will not be collecting this year. Giving tree cards will also be available at the parish center or can be mailed to you directly if you contact the COURAGE office at (708) 636-8001. COURAGE will need gifts for over 300 children. Will you kindly consider helping us?
