The outreeach commitee sponsors the Angel Giving Tree at Christmas.
When we place our money in the envelope, we are filled wih a good feeling. Our contribuion is goiing to the poor, the shut - ins, to those in nursing homes and to those who have rently lossed a loved one.
As a member of the outreach committee we take it one more step. We are the messengers for our parish community! We personally deliver the wrapped gifts, the flowers & cards to those in need! What a great experience it is!
People are so touched and moved by our parish generosity! We see surprised faces, happy faces and many eyes filled with tears and with so much gratitude!
Wow, we are truly doing the Lord's work!
This is what Christmas is all about! What a gift it is for us to receive at Christmas time! A few hours of our time during our busy schedules is all it takes. It is all worth it! Everyone needs to experience it!
