The Giving Tree will go up the weekend of November 14 and 15 in the back of church. On it you will find gift tags carrying the Christmas wishes for 100 children from Mehlville and Hancock schools and about 90 formerly homeless men and women now housed through the efforts of DePaul USA St. Louis. To make this act of charity a bit easier, you may deposit unwrapped gifts (along with the giving tree tag to identify the recipient) as you purchase them, in boxes at the church doors. There is no need to wait until the program deadline weekend (December 11-13).
The Adopt- A- Family Program will be for families from the Mehlville and Hancock schools with three or more children. This program will also include our current SVDP client families. These families will be available to be adopted starting the weekend of November 7. To adopt a family, you may either go to the church hall after Mass, call Stephanie Crowley at 846-8151, or email her at email@example.com.
