Christmas is a time to embrace the spirit of joy, peace, hope and love.  It is a time to celebrate the birth of Christ, the Saviour of the world!!  In order to truly rejoice during this season, especially in the midst of the pandemic, we are called to service with our 11th annual HELPING HANDS CHRISTMAS OUTREACH.  There are four ways to help!!  As faithful and loving disciples it is up to us to share the Good News in any way we can.  Thank you in advance for your generosity and support.

FOUR WAYS TO HELP THIS CHRISTMAS
