The Giving Tree


During the Advent season, the parish office receives applications for children in our Parish who are in need of gifts for Christmas.  Cards containing gift requests/suggestions and the name/gender/age/size of a child are hung on the Giving Tree beginning on the first Sunday of Advent.  Parishioners and/or visitors who would like to purchase a gift for one or more of the children take a card from the Tree.  Wrapped gifts, with the original card firmly attached, are placed under the Giving Tree.  Gifts are distributed to the children/families beginning about ten days prior to Christmas.  Parish Office staff members and members of the Knights of Columbus coordinate this effort. 

Please call the Parish Office at (508) 775-5744 if you are interested in serving in this ministry, or send an email to ministries@olvparish.org.
