Giving Tree
Christmas time is coming soon and we are preparing for our annual Giving Tree. St. Anthony’s Giving Tree is a heartwarming ministry that involves our entire parish. During the month of November and December leading up to Christmas, the Giving Tree Ministry acts as a vehicle so that members of our parish can share their blessings with those who are less fortunate in our community. We are asking for gift cards of any kind to give to a needy child in our community. Your generous donations also help families that are in various shelters and those that reach out for help during Christmas time.

Thanks to your generosity in 2019, St Anthony’s Giving Tree received 1338 gifts, helping approximately 270 families. Due to Covid-19 and in order to keep everyone safe, we are asking if you can please donate gift cards and drop them off in the mail slot at parish office or school office. Gift cards can be dropped off any time prior to December 15th. We will not be accepting gifts this year.

We will also be collecting items for the Christmas food baskets which are given out on December 23rd.  Each class will have a list of items St. Vincent de Paul is requesting. This list will go out in next week's newsletter.
School Shirts - Embroidery
Embroidery orders should be back this week. We are still accepting new orders if you need shirts processed. We will also have used uniforms out next week during parent conferences if you are in need of additional uniforms.
Washington DC/NYC March 15-19, 2021
7th and 8th grade families, there is still room to sign up for the Washington DC/New York City trip in March. This is a trip of a lifetime and one that you don't want to miss.

O God, By whose mercy the faithful departed find rest, look kindly on your departed veterans who gave their lives in the service of their country. Grant that through the passion, death, and resurrection of your Son they may share in the joy of your heavenly kingdom and rejoice in you with your saints forever.

We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen
Computers from School
If you have borrowed a school computer for distance learning, please plan to bring it back once your child returns to classroom learning. Computers will not be sent home for students that are home sick unless you anticipate your child will be out more than three days.
