This year’s Giving Tree will be set up the weekend of November 23rd. St. Jude’s Ministry of Social Concerns will be placing tags on the tree in support of two organizations: Peoples Place (peoplesplace2.com) and What is Your Voice? (whatisyourvoice.com). Both non-proﬁts support shelters and counseling for abused women and their families. They encourage them to ﬁnd growth toward independence and advocate to empower them to live violence-free lives. In addition, several needy families from the Cape Henlopen School system have been referred to our Ministry for assistance at Christmas. St. Vincent de Paul Society will also be placing tags on the Giving Tree to assist their neighbors in need. Their hangers will be in the form of an angel for a girl and gingerbread form for a boy.
Please remember that gifts should be returned with the tag on the packages or envelopes, no later than last Mass on Sunday, December 15, 2019, to meet distribution timing. We, as always, are grateful for the generosity of our parishioners at Christmas and throughout the year.
