Advent Reflections Dinner Social

Guest Speaker: LeAnne Osborn,

You’ll need to act quickly! Be a hostess/host and reserve your table that will sit 5-7 of your family or friends. Hostess/host will:

•Invite 5-7 people to sit at your table

•Decorate your table with a Christmas or Advent Theme

•Contribute a sweet and savory dish that can be shared on a buffet table

•Bring any other beverage of your liking (we will provide coffee, tea, and lemonade)

This is a wonderful time to bring friends and family together to celebrate the Season!

We only have 14 tables that can be reserved, so reserve early and be the first to go through the buffet line.

Help the Needy

If you would like to help the needy right here in Sanford & Gladwin County, you can!

By purchasing gift cards at Walmart & Meijer, a family can buy presents for their children, put fuel in their vehicle and/or buy groceries. Our local needy families have already begun calling in to request assistance for Christmas. Please help make a child’s Christmas a happy one by purchasing the prepaid cards in any denomination. Cards can be dropped off at the parish office and you will receive a receipt for your charitable donation. OR, if you would prefer to adopt a family (shop & gift wrap the presents yourself), please see Marcia at the office to choose a family. Thank You!

Christmas Kindness Tree

The Christmas Kindness Tree will be up at St. Anne on Sat Nov 9. We encourage you to take a tag to help the less fortunate. Instructions are on the tags for wrapping, etc.

All gifts must be returned no later than Saturday, December 21 at the Edenville site.

Please contact Bonnie Tappen at 435-7117 with any questions you may have.
