Each year, St. Jude collaborates with Catholic Charities to provide Christmas gifts for families who otherwise would have none. In the past, we have included other parish outreach programs, helping children from St. Cecilia’s Catholic School, Santa Clara Catholic School, the Title One schools in Allen, the Veterans Home in Bonham and refugee families through the Refugee Resettlement Programs. Join us as we gather in the Reception Area to bless the Giving Tree and our angels. The tree will be decorated with tags detailing the needs of those less fortunate.
During Advent, please take a name tag and purchase the gifts. Place the gifts in a gift bag (unwrapped) and return them under the tree with the name tag attached. Volunteers will sort and deliver gifts.
If you know of a family that might need assistance this Christmas, please contact Debbie Benko or Valerie Lengel at 469.931.6526.
