Giving Tree – Early to Mid-November
Two decorated Christmas trees go on display in the narthex of both churches. Ornaments on display contain information on a needy person from our area (St. Vincent de Paul) or a child, with their age range and other information. Pick one or more of the ornaments, purchase the gift, wrap it, and attach the ornament firmly to the package.
The second tree will have needs of our friends in Pine Ridge, S.D. These gifts will be taken to South Dakota for Christmas, by Deacon Allen Olson and Jacyntha Shaw in early to mid-December. Many of the items taken will be their only Christmas gifts. We work with the Jesuits and Sacred heart Church. Any questions call Jacyntha @ 262-538-3813
Bring the gift back as soon as possible and put it under the tree or bring it to the Parish Office, between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Monday to Thursday.

Christian Concerns Committee School Drive
The Christian Concerns Committee will have a reverse collection the last weekend in July and continue to collect school supplies until our mission trip in December. Our parish has been so generous helping Red Cloud students succeed over the past 14 years. By shopping the back to school sales now, you can help again by donating some special items that we are in need of. You may bring them into the parish office at any time during the year.
Some items are:
3×5 Index Cards
Sharpies (any color)
Pencil Top Erasers
