Blessing those in need.
In all this I have given you an example that by such work we must support the weak, remembering the words of the Lord Jesus, for He himself said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.”
This Advent service organizes lists and gifts for needy families from Social Services and the Refugee Resettlement Center. This service also involves making ornaments and putting requests for gifts on a Christmas tree at Thanksgiving. The requests are taken by parishioners and returned to church.
