Advent Giving Trees – Please return by Dec. 15th

Once again, for the twentieth year, we will be participating in the Advent Giving Trees. The trees will go up the first weekend of Advent, November 30th. There is no doubt the people of Our Lady of Angels respond generously to every request made. St Joseph’s home, Catholic Charities, Our Lady of the Presentation and Our Lady of Angels Spanish Group will be the recipients of your kindness.

Every year these groups await our gifts to make Christmas and Three Kings so special. Thank you for this. Please take a tag or two from a tree and return the gifts with the tag attached, to O.L.A. by Sunday, December 15th. 
May God bless you always.
