The thoughtfulness shown by St. Anselm Parishioners
We are once again so grateful to our wonderful parishioners for their generosity during the Parish Christmas. In November, Parishioners were asked to take a gift tag and buy a gift for someone in need – and they certainly did! During the second weekend of December Parishioners arrived at Church bearing thoughtful gifts for children, teens, and adults in need.
In another act of kindness, Parishioners sponsored trees and lights, many in honor of or in memory of loved ones. The lighting ceremony included a blessing from Msgr. Maloney and lovely carols by our fabulous St. Anselm Choir. This outdoor Winter Wonderland will brighten the spirits of all who pass by. Thank you for your generosity toward those in need and toward St. Anselm.
All the Best,
The St. Anselm Publicity Committee
