"'Amen I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.'" -Matthew 25:40
Thank you all for participating in the St. Benedict Angel Tree in support of Commonwealth Catholic Charities! Please read through ALL the directions below:
CCC's foster care program provides care for unaccompanied refugee children, who fled their home countries due to persecution over race, religion, political opinion, or national origin. Sadly, they were separated from their parents during their journey, or their parents were killed during the escape.
As in years past, CCC is looking for families to adopt their Christmas Angels but due to COVID-19, they are only accepting gift cards this year. Gift cards have a maximum purchase limit of $35.00 per card.
How To Sign Up to Purchase a Gift Card
Please click on the box that says 'SIGN UP' next to the card, and then click 'SUBMIT AND SIGN UP.' You will then be asked to enter your Name, Email, and Phone Number. This is to reserve your purchase of that particular card, so that we know all the cards will be purchased, and to ensure we won't receive an excessive amount of one particular gift card.
Once you have purchased a gift card(s), please put it in a sealed envelope with "CCC Angel Tree" written on the front of the envelope and either mail them to the church office, bring them by the church office during the week, drop them in the secure mailbox ourtside the church, or bring them to Mass and leave them in the basket marked "Angel Tree" during the check in process.
PLEASE do not put the gift card in any kind of gift box or wrapping.
Thank you very much for your consideration. We know these are difficult times for every family, so we are all the more grateful for your support of our brothers and sisters who are displaced due to violence and oppression. God bless you!
We will begin collecting cards on the weekend of November 22nd at Mass, but you are welcome to turn them in sooner.
All cards are due no later than Sunday, December 6th.
Below are the types and quantity of gift cards requested. Cards have a maximum purchase limit of $35:
Marshalls/Home Good (x5)
Rue 21 (x3)
Old Navy (x3)
