Continuing the 43 year tradition of sharing the spirit and hope of the holiday season, the people of St. Cecilia Parish will celebrate Advent with a Giving Tree. The gift tags will be available for parishioners to pick up during the Christmas Market the weekend of November 20-21. They will also be available during all masses on November 27-28 and December 4-5.

The majority of the gift tags will be requesting gift cards from Walmart and Target. The gift cards will be given to the families identified as needing assistance. The families will then use the cards to purchase gifts for their own families.

 The gift cards can be purchased through the school scrip program. They will have a table set up next to the Giving Tree table at all of the above weekend masses. The gift cards do not need to be wrapped. Please return your gifts to the table in the Narthex during the weekend masses on Nov. 20-21, Nov. 27-28 and Dec. 4-5.

Thank you for your support in helping to make the holiday season brighter for many area families.
