All Christmas gifts must be returned to the rectory no later than noon-time today (Sunday, Dec. 6th). Monetary donations are still being accepted until December 31st. Thank you all for your generosity in helping to make Christmas a little brighter for our local families who are struggling. They will enjoy wrapping the gifts that you have so thoughƞully chosen and presenting them to their children on Christmas morning. The Claremont Kiwanis Club is the organization that coordinated the giving of about 800 clothing gifts and many toys too! St. Mary’s is the largest donor since we purchased over 150 clothing gifts this year. We couldn’t do it without the help of so many of you! May the joy you have shared with others come back to bless your own Christmas! Thank you!
