Youth Group Giving Tree

For many years, our Annual Christmas Giving Tree sponsored by our Youth Group has been a tradition that parishioners have generously supported. The pandemic has not changed our desire to help area charities provide gifts for their clients, but we need to change how we do this. In past years parishioners took a gift tag listing a specific item needed. This year we are asking our parishioners to contribute in one of these 3 ways:

  • Donate online to support our Giving Tree
  • Bring a $25. Target, Kohl’s, or Walmart gift card to mass or the parish office
  • Bring or mail a check to the Church of St. Catharine (memo line Giving Tree) to mass or the parish office.

There will be teens collecting your gifts outside of masses on the weekends of November 21 & 22, and November 28 & 29. There will also be a box outside the parish office each day from 9:30 – 2:00 pm.
