Our vision is to do as Christ commanded us to reach out to those who are in need. This ministry is designed to provide Christmas presents and goodwill to people who are experiencing difficulty in their lives. Last year we distributed over 2000 gifts to people of all ages, who were in need. We helped needy families, nursing home residents, unwed mothers, homeless and abused women and children, incarcerated youth, the Boys and Girls Hope, Fr. Dan’s ministry in LA, and our own ACT office. We are comprised of parishioners who volunteer varying amounts of their time.
Everyone is welcome. Our planning begins at the beginning of October and continues through December. The Saturday prior to thanksgiving, Christmas trees are placed in church. Each tree is decorated with gift tags. Church members may take as many tags as they wish, purchase the gifts and return them on designated dates. The committee then sorts, wraps and distributes the presents.
