Parish ‘Giving Tree’ to benefit children, families this Christmas

Our annual “Giving Tree” has ornaments on it with the names of children and families from Thea Bowman House.

We hope that you will take an ornament (or several) and purchase the items that the child/family are wishing for this Christmas. Please bring the gift with the ornament attached to it — UNWRAPPED — and place it under the tree by Sunday, Dec. 4, the last day to bring in the gifts. The children receive the gifts the following week, and if the gifts are not brought in in time, they won’t receive them. Please plan accordingly if you are purchasing online.

If you have any questions, contact Anne Elacqua at 315-941-7447 or
