One of the ways you can support our Parish Christmas Giving Tree Ministry is by taking an ornament off one of our three Giving Trees located at each entrance of Church. By taking an ornament, you can select an individual to bless this Christmas Season and help a person in need. We will also have monetary donation envelopes titled “Christmas Giving Tree” if you are unable to shop.
Each year the Christmas Giving Trees provide Saint George Parish a unique opportunity to work with the entire community by coordinating resources to meet the needs of families who might not have had the ability to share in the spirit of the holiday season.
