Parish News & Information


Wish lists are available for 1 more family and 27 individuals in need of Christmas Gifts. We are responding to their basic wishes for clothing, household items, books, toys, etc. Your generosity will make the season brighter for so many who would otherwise go without Christmas gifts this year. Your compassion will bring hope to the hopeless.


How much do you have to spend?

We ask that you spend $50 per family member to help make Christmas wishes come true. Families range from three to six members, usually with a mix of a mom, dad, and children.  You may select the size family that you would like to shop for, or we can split larger families between two to three people. 


When are gifts due?

Drop off for gifts will take place on Friday, December 20 from 9 a.m. - Noon.  We cannot accommodate early drop offs. Unfortunately, storage is not available. Wrap all gifts individually and put nametags on them. Include gift receipts, especially for clothes. Put the wrapped gifts in a big bag (s), tie with a bow, and tape the family number on the outside.


How do I sign up?  

Please fill out the form below. You will be contacted with more details about your adopted family.


If you have questions please contact Adrienne Timm.
