2016 GIVING TREE

It is time for our 8th annual Giving Tree to help those less fortunate than us. Beginning the weekend of November 26 and through the weekend of January 8, there will be 3 trees decorated with tags that will benefit BRIDGE TO LIFE and some parish members from St. Margaret Mary who need our assistance.

These trees will be located in the following areas: 1) in the narthex of the upper church, 2) in the West Vestibule near the elevator and 3) in the lower church.

We hope you are able to take a tag or more if possible and buy the items listed. Please do not wrap the gift. Just tape the tag to the bag or box so we can identify the item and where it is to go.

Please bring the gift no later than the weekend of January 8 and give to an usher during Masses or bring to the Rectory for safe keeping. We all know times are tough but for those of us lucky enough, a donation will aid someone during this time of year where it is better to give than to receive. God bless you and your families for your generosity.

 

 

ARBOL DE REGALOS

Es el tiempo de nuestra octava edición de árbol de regalos para ayudar a aquellos menos afortunados que nosotros. A partir del fin de semana del 26 de noviembre y hasta el fin de semana del 8 de enero, habrán 3 árboles decorado con etiquetas que beneficiarán al PUENTE A LA VIDA y algunos miembros de la parroquia de Santa Margarita María que necesitan nuestra ayuda.

Estos árboles se encuentran en las siguientes áreas: 1) en el nártex de la iglesia arriba, 2) en el vestíbulo oeste cerca del ascensor y 3) en la iglesia de abajo.

Esperamos que tomen una etiqueta o más si es posible y puedan comprar los artículos mencionados. Por favor, no envuelva los regalos. Simplemente pegue la etiqueta a la bolsa o caja para que podamos identificar el articulo y a donde va a ir.

Vamos a colectar hasta el primer fin de semana de enero. Por favor, traiga el regalo y darlo a un ujier durante las misas o lleven a la Oficina durante las horas de trabajo. Todos sabemos que estamos en tiempos difíciles, aquellos de nosotros que podamos hacer una donación será bien recibida. Dios los bendiga a ustedes y a sus familias por su generosidad.
