Angel Tree

During Advent, parishioners are invited to choose an “angel” from our Christmas tree to provide a designated gift for a child or adult in need. Many of our gifts support Good Shepherd Services or St. Vincent de Paul families in our area. We also invite parishioners to spread Christmas love by adopting a family to provide gifts and household goods as needed.
