How You Helped Those Who Help Others

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.

December 13 Bulletin

It’s Gaudete Sunday when we light the rose-colored candle on the Advent wreath!  This week we also published a report on the work our parish conference of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul has done in the past year and how your #GivingTuesday donations will help.

Giving Tuesday, December 1, means Helping Those Who Help Others

Christmas Baskets Must Be Different This Year

How We Will Fill Christmas Baskets This Year

Aaron and Olivia talk about how we will make sure the Christmas Baskets are filled full this year. And don’t forget #Giving Tuesday, December 1, when you can make sure families are able to buy fresh food to go with their basket!
