Advent Angels

Every Advent, a tree is decorated with paper angels that either includes the names of area youngsters in need of Christmas presents or a request for a gift card to an area supermarket.  Parishioners select their angel and abide by its request.  Depending upon the angel selected, children receive wrapped gifts in time for Christmas or the gift cards are used throughout the year for those needing to purchase food.
