Giving to our Brothers and Sisters in Need
Preparation for the Jesse Tree begins in September when tags are cut and strung with yarn for hanging on the tree. Several agencies are contacted to determine individuals who are in need of assistance and requests are organized. In October, gift requests are entered on the tags. During Advent, the Jesse tree is placed in the Narthex and tags are attached. Parishioners, through their generosity, choose a tag, fill the need by purchasing the items, and return it to the parish on the third Sunday of Advent. Gifts are sorted and distributed.
Once a year during Advent.
