For those new to the parish and/or this program, one selects a tag, purchases a new gift (or gifts) for the person. Wrap the gift(s) and attach the tag or writes the name and CSP# on each gift for that person. Gifts are due back at the church on or before Gift Weekend, December 8/9, by 1 pm on Sunday. During the mass you take the gifts with you into church, you will bring your gifts to the alter, when Father gives the indication, during the presentation of the gifts.
Immediately after the 11:30 mass, we need help sorting all of the gifts by family, bagging them and loading them onto trucks. (Thank you to Bekins Lake County movers for donating the trucks and drivers, as always!) We also need help unloading the trucks at the Catholic Charities Warehouse. On Monday-Wednesday,
Dec 10--12, volunteers check all of the bags at the Warehouse. This is a volunteer opportunity you don’t want to miss.
If you have any questions or need more information, see Nancy Payonk after all the Masses (starting Nov 3), phone 847-856-8230
