Each year in November, the Social Action committee organizes the parish’s Giving Tree. Gift tags are distributed after mass or placed on the decorated tree for selection by parishioners. Gifts are purchased and donated for distribution to charitable agencies. There were just 100 tags on that first tree. Now there are over 1300. Agencies who receive the gifts are reviewed and selected by members of the Social Action committee. Stockings are also given to the homebound of the parish.
