This Christmas, the St. Sebastian Parish Family will once again be supporting eight local organizations and several families in need through the Christmas Giving Tree.
The organizations rely heavily on the support of our parish and are able to provide for many because of your generosity. Donation tags will be available in the Narthex beginning this weekend of Nov. 23-24. Prayerfully consider helping our community by taking a tag and purchasing a gift for someone in need.
Please attach the tag to the gift and return by the date listed on the tag (Dec. 8 or Dec. 15).
Thank you for supporting this wonderful ministry!
