Advent Giving Tree Success

Each Advent, we hang gift tags on the trees in the back of church with different requests, such as “2 Bath Towels” or “1 Laundry Basket.” While the list has usually been quite similar, this year’s tags also included toilet paper, paper towel, and feminine products for women. We partnered with Catholic Charities West Michigan this year.

We are incredibly appreciative of a parish who stepped up once again to provide for the needs in our community! Thank you to all those who made donations for the items listed on the gift tags, as well as all of the monetary donations towards God’s Kitchen and in the form of Meijer gift cards, which totaled $2,875.00.

Catholic Charities West Michigan was so grateful for the donations and the need to bring one of their big trucks in order to fit everything in one load! Thank you, Holy Spirit for truly living out our mission to Love God…Serve Others…Grow Disciples!
