Bulletin for the First Sunday of Advent. Some STA staff members share their families’ Advent wreaths, plus we share a prayer to bless your own Advent wreath.
November 27 – December 17
This year’s Christmas Food Baskets are more important than ever as many of our neighbors struggle due to the pandemic. We will collect non-perishable food and personal care items starting November 27. If you are coming to the STA campus, you can bring your food donations and put them in the brown bins as usual, this may not be safe for some members of our community due to health or other restrictions. Therefore we will offer three other ways you can help while keeping your exposure to other people low.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for Christmas Food Baskets and the assistance offered by our parish St. Vincent de Paul Conference is higher than any recent year. #Giving Tuesday, December 1, lets you help and double your impact!
Here is a look at Christmas Baskets last year and why we have to do them differently this year. But no matter how many obstacles the pandemic puts in our way, with #Giving Tuesday, December 1, you can help ensure our neighbors have food for Christmas!
