Advent: We are doing the Giving Tree again this year. We have two families. One has a 1 year old girl, and the other has a girl 11, and 2 boys age 10 and a boy 7 and one 3.  We will do food baskets for the two families as well.  Helping the less fortunate is a good way to celebrate Lent. When you take an ornament you are obliged to buy the item and return it before the gift wrapping night. We will wrap presents on Monday, December 17th at 6:30 in the MPB. We need people to come and help as we also do the bags for the kids that evening.  If you find you will be unable to get the item, please let Cathy Lenz or Karlene Ewigman know so someone else can fill that request or return it to the tree.
