Advent Giving Tree

Traditionally, each year during the Christmas season, the Annunciation reaches out to help families experiencing difficult times in our community, to other parish communities and several agencies.

How can you help? Here's how . . .

There will be ornaments on the Advent Giving Tree with the age and gender of the recipients who will receive the gifts.

We invite you to reflect on the many blessings you have been given. Perhaps you may want to discuss this with your family, a group of co-workers, or individually. We invite you to take as many ornaments as you'd like. Gift cards are welcomed and recommended. We ask that all items are new.

Please bring the unwrapped items with the ornament attached, to Mass with you. You are invited to process up to the altar during the offertory procession.

The Advent Tree works by referral. If you would like to refer a family from our parish, please call Alma or Mari at the Parish House at (209) 463-1305. Thank you for your generosity.

Please bring gifts with you to Mass or to the parish house no later than December 16, 2019
