Next week the Church will begin the Advent Season. The generous Parishioners of St. Fabian are once again asked to help bring Christmas cheer to someone in need.
Our Sharing trees will be set up on the first weekend in Advent, Saturday, November 27th and Sunday, November 28th. They will be filled with colored tags bearing the names and ages of someone in need of cheer this Christmas.
For those of you who like to shop early and take advantage of the great early Christmas bargains, below are some gift idea’s that are sure to be listed on a tag or two (or possibly many more!).
Popular items are always Barbie dolls, Disney Princess dolls, baby dolls, L.O.L. Dolls and doll accessories, Transformers, wrestling figures, action figures, basket- balls, footballs, remote control vehicles (cars, Motorcycles or trucks) and men’s or women’s clothing in XL, 2X, and 3X sizes. Hats, gloves and scarf’s are popular as well. Many of these items will be on sale during the coming weeks. Please note: All items gifted must be new!
When the trees appear in church, simply check the back of the tags and match them to the gift you’ve already purchased. Many of you will choose to wait until you feel drawn to a tag and shop specifically for that person. Either way, know that your gift will brighten someone’s Christmas. For many of these people, your gift will be the only one they receive! With that being said, we must stress… if your gift is not returned to us by December 12th, the person who’s tag you chose will not receive your gift.
REMEMBER TO SECURELY ATTACH THE COLORED TAG TO YOUR GIFT AND RETURN THEM ON THE WEEKEND OF DECEMBER 11 & 12, 2021.
Gifts returned after December 12th CAN NOT be delivered.
Bless you for your continued generosity in making this tradition so successful every year!
Extra gifts are always appreciated and should be marked with appropriate age and gender. Or, if you can’t shop, you may put a monetary donation in the marked box located in the Narthex.
