Advent Tree Projects
During Advent, St. Mary’s/St. Peter’s parish place two separate giving trees in the sacristy. Under one tree hats, mittens, scarves, socks, etc. are collected for distribution to school nurses for children in need of such items.
The other tree is covered with tags that indicate an age appropriate toy or game. The unwrapped toys and games are collected under the tree and donated to Catholic Charities for their client families.
This project is very successful thanks to the outstanding generosity of our parishioners.
