Advent Giving Tree Party
All are invited to the Annual Advent Giving Tree Party on Sunday, November 19, after the 12:30pm Mass in Roetter Hall. The party allows us to help our brothers and sisters in need in two ways: by assembling homeless care packages that will go to So Others May Eat (SOME) and collecting Christmas gifts that will go to San Diego Adolescent Pregnancy and Parenting Program (SANDAPP).

Ways you can be part of this:

  • After Mass, pick-up a sticky note naming an item(s) that is needed to make care packages, drop-off your item(s) no later than 12:00pm on Sunday, November 19, and come to the party to assemble a care package(s).

  • At the party, pick-up an ornament(s) naming a Christmas gift for you to donate and return.

  • Sign-up to help set-up, clean-up, or bring a dish for the party!

For questions, contact Ester or Luke.
