Like so many other things going virtual this year due to Covid-19 we are having a “Virtual Giving Christmas Tree!” We are sponsoring young men and women through Vista Maria and younger children through Community Social Services.

Instead of taking a mitten from the tree, this year we have printed copies of stocking stuffer gift ideas acceptable for Vista Maria. Community Social Services is seeking gift cards specifically to Target, Walmart, Kohl’s, Macy & Dunham’s. You may bring gift cards/gifts to the Parish Offce or mail directly to Community Social Services(90 Sheldon Street, Detroit, MI 48201 ATTN: Lynda Dandridge).

To make it even easier this year, you can order gifts online by visiting Vista Maria’s Amazon Wish List and ship your gift directly to Vista Maria!
*Vista Maria Wish Lists are available in the back of both Churches or online here.

If you’d rather shop for items, you most certainly can! Remember to bring items unwrapped and in gift bags only to St. Joseph or St. Patrick or the Parish office.

If you opt to shop, you must have your gift bag here no later than Monday, December 7th. The delivery takes place on Tuesday, December 8th.

Thank you for doing what you can to make this Christmas, especially this year, extraordinary for children and teens.

Important Notes:

No cash(gift cards are acceptable)
No sharp items, metal, or glass
No spiral bound books of any kind
Do not put your last name or other personal information on your gift
If you have questions please give us a call!
