You came bearing gifts with smiles on your faces
to benefit friends from five different places.
Tots, teens, and adults send their thanks to you.
And the St. Anselm Elves are most grateful too! – The Elves
Parishioners chose gift tags on Marathon Sunday weekend and returned December 3rd & 4th with gifts galore for our Parish Giving Tree! The presents you so carefully chose will enrich the lives of infants, children, teens, and adults assisted by Catholic Charities, NYU (Lutheran) Family Support Center, the Hispanic Counseling Center, & Hour Children. Finally, donations to Mercy Home will provide special needs adults with very special gifts. Thank you for taking the time to reach out and let the less fortunate know that they are remembered during this busy season. We are most grateful for your generosity, thoughtfulness & goodwill towards others.
We thank Fr. Anthony for his guidance and Fr. John for his support and for allowing us to transform the Rosary Chapel into the “Giving Tree” for one very memorable weekend. Thanks also to our “Elves” (Florence, Ossie, Barbara, Bob, Eileen, Peter, Jim, Bernadette, Judy, & Joe) for all their help. It could never happen without you!
All the very merry best,
The St. Anselm Publicity Committee
