Santa Sack Ingathering

Sunday, December 9

Santa Sacks is an annual Holiday Outreach program of St. Mary's.

During the month of November, Church Members agree to take a sack, and a list from an area resident in need. (The lists typically ask for clothing and hygenic needs.)

Members of our congregation then go out and purchase the needed items, typically at local realtors like Walmart or Target. 

Then on Sunday December 9th we bring the Santa Sacks to Church and Mother Debbie will bless them at the 10:30am service and they will be distributed right after!
