Advent Giving Tree


The Advent Giving Tree is a parish custom that assists needy families at Christmas. Parishioners select a tag from a parish Christmas tree that lists the age and sex, and sometimes a definite need for parishioners from St. Malachy (our sister parish).

St. Rose of Lima families then donate wrapped gifts that are delivered in time for Christmas. Thanks to our parishioners’ generosity, over 400 people receive these gifts each Christmas.

The Giving Tree will be in the church vestibule on November 17 & 18, 2018.  Stop by to select an individual or family gift tag, then purchase gifts to help make the season bright for others!  Gifts should be returned to the Parish Center on December 8 & 9, 2018.  

Thank you for suporting area families in need.
