Giving Tree

It's planning time again, for St Mark's Giving Tree ministry! We  would once again like to coordinate support to assist the following groups for Christmas:

The top priority will be St Mark's parishioner families who could use help this year with Christmas gifts.

Tags, describing the specific gift needs, are hung up in the Narthex. Gifts should be purchased and turned in before and after Masses on Dec 3-4, or during the weeks before that in the office.

 

Advent at St. Mark's!
