Our Giving Tree has been a wonderful tradition here at Holy Family for many years. It is our opportunity to help our local needy, showing them that we care and hopefully making their holiday season a little brighter.
Please help us to make this our best year ever!! If you would like to participate this year:
FIRST, please take an ornament from the tree, indicating what gift you will bring to share with our local families. You are welcome to keep this ornament and place it on your tree as a reminder of your giving spirit.
SECOND, bring your unwrapped gift, and place it under our tree.
THIRD, take a “Gold Star” ornament that will be displayed to the right of the tree and place it on the Giving Tree as a sign of your gift. We will take our presents, sort and distribute them to our local organizations in need. Please bring your gifts no later than December 16th to give us time to distribute to the various organizations in time for them to gift before Christmas.
Blue/Silver Ornaments: Request a gift of bedding (sheets, blankets, etc.) Green Ornaments: Request a gift of New Born Baby Clothes Gingerbread Men: Request Baby Diapers Other Various Colors: Request a gift for a variety of items: Children’s clothing, winter coats, boots, sweatpants/sweatshirts, toys, socks and underwear. ** The primary school nurse says she is in dire need of children’s new underwear, sweatpants/leggings this year**.

Dec. 8th is the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. However, if December 8 falls on a Sunday (as it does in 2019), the celebration of the Feast is transferred to Mon., Dec. 9th. Mass will be at 8am. This is because Sundays in Advent take precedence over any other feast. National Night of Prayer for Life, asking Mary to intercede for us through her Son, for a return to respect for all life in our country will be observed in Church Sun. 12/8 from 9pm - 1am.

2020 MASS INTENTION GUIDELINES
The practice of requesting a Mass to be offered for loved ones, living or deceased is a beautiful part of our Catholic tradition. Last year we revised how we schedule Masses and will continue this policy. The Mass Intention Book for 2020 will be open for booking Nov. 1, 2019. Request forms to book a Mass are available at the Parish Office and the entrances of the Church. Please read the information carefully, fill in the form completely, enclosed payment and submit your requests to the Parish Office. Requests will be processed in the order they are received. We will try our best to get a date as close to what is being requested. Thank you.
