Dear Parents and Guardians:
To most of us, the Christmas season is filled with the exciting rush of attending parties, buying presents and planning menus. To others, it is a distressing time. Once again, in the spirit of the Christmas season, Our Lady of Lourdes School Council has assembled the Angel Tree in the front foyer of the school. The lights will be lit one by one by the generosity of our school community. This year donations of hats and mittens and socks will be collected and donated to St. Vincent de Paul. St. Vincent de Paul hosts a sandwich Saturday once a month to provide food and companionship to people who haven’t a home. With colder temperatures upon us, the participants will be a little warmer, and a little more prepared because of your generosity.
When the gift is received at the school, your child will be invited to light a bulb on the Angel Tree. The child will be able to pick an angel off our tree to represent the gift you gave an individual in trying times. The student body will witness the gift of giving as the tree starts to radiate goodness and sharing, just as Jesus taught us to do. “Being the light of Jesus for others.”
Please take a moment to reflect how this opportunity will not only enrich these individuals’ Christmas but how it will also enrich your family’s Christmas.
Hats and mittens and socks for all ages will be accepted at the office from
November 27th – December 8th
