Christmas Giving Tree

St Brendan parishioners donate gifts for local families and social service agencies.  Volunteers sort and prepare the gifts for distribution to families.  This project covers just a few weeks and requires very little time, but we do need volunteers to assist with the tree preparation and the gift sorting.
