"For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me"

Matthew 25:35-36

Angel Tree 2020


We are happy to announce we will be continuing our yearly Angel Tree Drive,

but like everything else, it will be handled differently due to the pandemic.

 

This year, we are requesting financial donations only. Please do not purchase any gift cards.

With the  money we receive, we will purchase gift cards in bulk and give these cards out as the Angel Tree gifts. That means no gift cards from you and no toys, clothes or socks for the homeless.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

 

Beginning the weekend of November 21/22, we will have “Angel Tree 2020” envelopes available to take home and return with a check or cash contribution. On the envelope you may choose how you want your contribution distributed:

 

· A child in need

· A senior citizen in need

· Catholic Charities

· Seminarians

· Where this contribution is needed most

 

You can also make a contribution by clicking on the red button below. You will have the same 5 distribution options as above. You can also mail a check to the church. Make sure to put “Angel Tree” on the memo line of your check and, please, do not send cash in the mail.

A Special Message to parishioners who may be struggling financially, especially with food.

 

Maybe you have been struggling month after month for some time to make ends meet. Layoffs and job losses are reported almost every week. We understand you may NEVER have been in a position of needing or asking for help. Now is the time to lean on your church family for assistance. We are here for you. You are not alone.

 

A Special Invitation

 

The food panty will reopen for parishioners in the morning of Saturday, October 3 and the following Saturday, October 10. Thereafter, the parish will take appointments from parishioners and others in our community on an ongoing basis. Please call 702-804-8311 and follow the prompts to leave a message. Your call will be returned by either the food pantry coordinator or a vetted volunteer to schedule your appointment. All information is confidential. We will make the process of picking up food discreet and safe. Thank you for trusting us and letting us help!

If you have questions, contact Pastoral Associate for Human Concerns Patti McGuire at 702-804-8311 or 

pmcguire@seaslv.org. With your generous support of our Outreach Ministry and food pantry, we will continue to serve the most vulnerable people and families in our community.  Thank you!
