Thank you from Adopt-A-Family
St. Vincent de Paul, our parish outreach ministry, thanks to all those parishioners who participated in the Adopt-A-Family program this past Christmas. Because of your generosity and goodwill, 21 families received Christmas gifts this year. Thank you very much. May God’s blessing be yours in the New Year!
This program meets a critical need in assisting our local community of families who have experienced a greater than usual financial hardship due to the pandemic. We are looking for families, who have been blessed this year and want to give back in gratitude, to participate by purchasing Christmas gifts for the family members they adopt. Your support will bring joy to your family as well as to the family you adopt during this holiday season.

Can Christmas still change the world? The Christmas story is a story of love, hope, redemption and relationship. So, what happened? How did it turn into stuff, stress and debt? Along the way the best story in the world... has become a story of what's on sale.
