Angel Tree

During Advent Season, The Angel Giving Tree program invites parishioners to choose “angel” gift tags from a display to provide a requested gift for a child or adult in need.  Gifts support organizations in our area such as Good Shepherd Services and the CARE Team at Norcross High School.  Parishioners can also spread Christmas joy by participating in The St. Nicholas Christmas Program, where MOQ families can adopt a family in need, as identified by St. Vincent de Paul, and purchase gifts & household items to brighten the family’s holiday season.
