Christmas Giving Tree Project

Help make someone's Christmas extra-special - despite the pandemic!

The ESM community at St. Bernard's is sponsoring a Giving Tree to provide gifts for individuals and families in need. The Giving Tree table will be "open" at the end of each Sunday Mass (11 am and 5 pm) during the 1st and 2nd Sundays of Advent for donors to register and claim a "Gift Tag" ornament from our tree identifying the specific gift. Donors must commit to purchasing and wrapping the gift requested and returning the gift package with its Gift Tag by the 4th of Advent (to church).

The gifts will be picked up and distributed through the charitable institutions we are cooperating with.

Anyone who wishes to be a donor should please present themselves to the Giving Tree table at the end of the Advent I and II Masses to register and claim an ornament. If you were unable to register for Mass because the signup list was full, please consider coming at the end of Mass anyway to get an ornament (or to return your gift)!
