JESSE TREE Christmas Project

Once again, St. Peter’s Parish will have a JESSE TREE! A Jesse Tree is placed in the sanctuary and on the tree are Christmas ornaments with one side marked a child’s gender and age, and TOY or PJ. Some ornaments are marked with a food item. Parishioners are invited to pick an ornament and purchase a gift for that specific child; or the specified food item for that family. Then, bring the unwrapped gift and ornament to the Parish Office by noon on Monday, December 14th. These gifts will be placed with a food basket for their family. Thank you for helping make Christmas brighter this year! For more information, please contact Donna at 705-472-0513.
