Advent is just around the corner and plans are being made for the Annual St. Bernadette Christmas Angel Tree Project & Party. This year's party will be held on Sat, Dec 14.
Two hundred children from families of the working poor will be invited to attend this special event that will include a pancake breakfast, a visit with Santa, a gift of their choice, a Nativity Christmas stocking, and an opportunity to win a new bicycle. Attendees will also be able to visit our various Nativity stations that include gingerbread house making, necklace & ornament making center, a petting zoo, a Christmas themed bounce house, color and activity center, outdoor games, Nativity bingo and much, much more. Everything is provided to our guests free of charge.
We are currently looking for sponsors and leaders. If you are interested in underwriting some of the major expenses such as the bounce house, petting zoo, craft supplies, prizes or donating one of more of our raffle bicycles, please contact Shirley Smalley in the Parish Office.
Virtual angels will be available online the weekend of Nov 16/17 and hard copy angels will be handed out starting on the weekend of Nov 23/24.
Help us share the message and joy of Christmas with needy children from around our parish. This is an event where everyone regardless of their age can join in and participate. Be a part of thisspecial outreach.
