St. John’s Annual Christmas Box Program 2013
This Christmas season, St. John’s is once again partnering with the Boys and Girls Club of Frederick for their Christmas Box Program. All donations will be used to help our local community. There are several ways you can help:
· Adopt a family and purchase the gifts requested, or
· Make a monetary donation to provide a meal for a family
Envelopes for donations are available in the pews the entire month of November. Please place envelopes with donations in the collection baskets or drop off at the Parish Office before December 8th! It is estimated that $60 will feed a family of four; any amount is appreciated and will be put to good use.
If you wish to purchase gifts, family assignments and children’s name, with wish list, will be available following the 9:00 AM & 11:00 AM Masses this Sunday.
For more information, please contact the Parish Office or Mark and Terri Maradei, 240-379-7079 or email at email@example.com.
The Jesse Tree
To serve as a reminder to us that the Christmas season is about giving, most especially to those who are less fortunate, we will be putting up a Jesse Tree in Church at the Blessed Mother’s Altar this weekend. On the back of the ornaments, we have placed a label with a specific item for those in need. Please use this ornament as a tag to be placed on the gift you will be buying. Again this year, two of our local organizations will be the recipients of the Jesse Tree gifts: The Department of Social Services’ “Holiday Gift Project”, and to the Religious Coalition Christmas Program. An Identification code for each organization will be placed on each tag: Department of Social Services, DSS; the Religious Coalition, RC. Please wrap the gifts intended for DSS; do not wrap the gifts for RC. The Tree will be available the weekend of November 17th through December 8th. All gifts must be brought in by December 8th! Our delivery date is December 10th. See insert in today’s bulletin.
