Christmas Giving Program

  

In order to help all families prepare for a wonderful Christmas celebration, we are again relying on the generosity of our parish family by launching our annual Christmas Giving Program here at Saint Michael Parish. After consultation with our partner agencies, it has been determined that as with last year, we will again be asking for cash only donations. The agencies will in turn, use the financial donations to secure all the families are requesting.

 

In the spirit of “Advent preparation”, and to distribute the ornaments to all the exits of the Church, wreaths have been placed at all the doors of the Church with our angel ornaments. There are three different angels on the wreaths, each representing a different dollar amount requested: Pink: $25 ▪ Purple: $50 ▪ Gold: $100

All of the angels have an envelope attached which is addressed to Saint Michael Parish. You can make a donation and drop it in the secured donation boxes located near the wreaths. Your gift can also be placed in the offertory basket or mailed to the parish office.

In addition to taking an angel ornament, you may also make a donation to the Christmas Giving Program by contribute through our PayPal account below, or simply mail in a donation, marked “Christmas Giving Program”. All donations will be accepted through December 5, 2021 – to allow the partner agencies to secure all they need.

We are extremely thankful for the overwhelming support our parish family has shown in past years. We are very hopeful that generous support will continue this year. We thank you for your understanding as we again comply with the agencies' desire in the midst of the pandemic. We anticipate returning to offering opportunities to purchase actual gifts in 2022.

 

Thank you and God Bless you all!

CHRISTMAS GIVING PROGRAM UPDATE
THANK YOU to everyone who so generously and lovingly supported our annual Christmas Giving Program. The outreach made possible this Christmas is a true testament to the core value to love one another. Due to your generosity we were able to increase our giving to the agencies by 20% from last year. We are grateful to the team who prepared the ornaments, replenished the wreaths and will assist in forwarding the funds provided to the various agencies, who, in turn, will provide the gifts and food necessary to provide a glorious Christmas for so many. While the vast majority of the contributions have been returned, there are always some last minute needs with which your gift could assist. While the wreaths will come down this weekend, any financial gift would be most welcomed this weekend and next. Thank you, and as we prepare for our Christmas celebration, let us keep in prayer all served by this year’s Christmas Giving Program. God bless you all!
