GIVING TREE

The Giving Tree

The Giving Tree Program is a long-standing tradition at St. Patrick where we support different non-profit organizations throughout the valley by providing them with items the people they serve may need during the Christmas season. Each year, for several weekends in November, parishioners are able to select ornaments off of our Giving Trees that indicate different items that are in need. Parishioners then shop for these items and return the items to the parish with the ornament attached.

Starting November 20-21, you will find the Giving Trees outside of the church. You are welcome to grab an ornament (or two!) and shop for the organization of your choice. We will be accepting the gift cards and gift returns on the following dates:

November 27-28 – before and after all Masses
December 2 – 3pm – 7pm
December 4-5 – before and after all Masses
December 6 – 3pm – 7pm

Please return your gifts unwrapped, with the ornament attached, at one of the times listed above.
