Advent & Christmas at St. Mary's

ADVENT & CHRISTMAS PROGRAMS, STUDIES & SERVICES

Join us at St. Mary's as we enter the Season of Advent and celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus.


ADVENT GIVING TREE TO BENEFIT LAD LAKE RESIDENTS: Once again we will be collecting Christmas gifts for the residents of Lad Lake.  It’s a very unusual time for everyone, but I don’t think we should forget about those less fortunate. I’m sure their lives have been altered during this pandemic, so hopefully, we can give them a nice Christmas.

Because we are not in the church building, we won’t be setting up our Advent Giving Tree.  We also realize that many of you are not going into businesses to shop, so we will have to be a little creative this year.  We will offer you a few options: 

  • Buy your own gifts and bring them unwrapped to the collection box at our remaining drive-in church services or after that in the church office.  If you don’t want to venture out during this time, someone from our committee would be happy to pick up items at your home. Amazon would be a great place to shop for items and if you do shop on that website be sure to use the Amazon Smile link and choose St. Mary’s as your charity.
  • You can also donate monetarily in which case someone from our committee will purchase gifts for you.

We will be collecting gifts through December 15. The wish list for individual residents or program needs is in today’s bulletin. This list can also be found on our website or can be emailed out to you by contacting the parish office. 

We know this has been a hard time for many of us, both emotionally and financially, but there are always items in every price range and any little bit will be appreciated.  If you have any questions about this project or need to contact someone for pickup of gifts, don’t hesitate to call or text Sally K. at (262) 490-8149 or on her email: sallykingj@gmail.com.
