2020 Christmas Sharing

Due to Covid we are changing our Adopt a Family Program this year. Those who would like to adopt a family should email Barry O’Donnell bodonnell@st-raphael.com and register by Thursday October 29th. Registration should include your name, email address, cell/home telephone number and the number of children requested.  We will do our best to match your requests with a corresponding family in need.  Depending on how many parish families register will determine how many families will be included in the program. Most families will be selected from Loaves & Fishes Community Services.  Individuals, families, small Christian communities, school and RE groups, and neighborhoods are all welcome to adopt.  After you have been matched with a family you will receive a form by email indicating the number, ages, and sex of the children with a wish list of items to be purchased. You will receive notification of your adopted family the week of November 16th.  Gifts with the indicated reference number should be returned to the St. Raphael gym on Friday December 11th. There will be more details coming about the drop-off.
