CHRISTMAS PROJECTS - St. Kevin Religious Education

posted Dec 9, 2017, 11:38 AM by St. Kevin Religious Education   [ updated Dec 9, 2017, 11:38 AM ]

We are inviting all of our families to participate in two service projects in our program as we help to make this Christmas a special one for the less fortunate children in our community.  We will be participating in the St. Vincent de Paul Christmas Toy Drive and the Christmas Drive for Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital/NICO at Memorial West.  We will be dividing these two projects by grade level as follows:
 

GRADES 1 – 5:  Students in these grade levels will be participating in the Christmas Drive for Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital/NICO at Memorial West.  We are asking for donations of unwrapped new teddy bears or stuffed toys to be distributed to children with terminal illnesses.  We will also be accepting monetary donations to buy meals for the families spending Christmas Eve in the Intensive Care Units. 
 
GRADES 6 AND UP:  Students in these grade levels will be participating in the St. Vincent de Paul Christmas Toy Drive.  We are asking for donations of toys or gifts for children ages 9 – 12.  This past week, students in these grade levels received an “angel” representing a child in need with the age level indicated.  For the gender, we recommend getting a gift for someone of the same gender as your child with the specified age level.  The toy should be unwrapped, and the “angel” should be taped to the toy or gift.
 

Please bring any donations this coming week (December 12, 13, and 16) when your child comes to class.  Similar to the food drive, we will have a cart at the entrance gate where you can place your donations.  We will be accepting donations up until Saturday, December 16th.

In addition, we thank all of you for your generous contributions to our Thanksgiving Food Drive.  We put together over 100 bags earlier today with the help of the Confirmation Classes, the parish community, and the St. Vincent de Paul Society.  Furthermore, we collected close to $1,000 in cash donations to be used for the turkeys.  All of the charitable work we are able to accomplish is only possible through your generosity.
 
St. Vincent de Paul will also need help in delivering these Thanksgiving baskets to these families.  We invite you and your family to come to the Parish Hall on Tuesday, November 21st at 3:30 pm to pick up a basket or two and deliver them with love to these families in need. 
 
As we celebrate this occasion with our families and loved ones, let us remember to be thankful to God for all the graces he has bestowed on us and all the blessings he constantly provides for us.
 
We wish you and your family a blessed Thanksgiving!

We wanted to thank everyone who came and celebrated with us at our Religious Education Mass today.
 
A special thank you to all the students from the Confirmation classes who participated as lectors, greeters, and offertory bearers.  They did an excellent job!  Special thanks also go to all the members of our Music Ministry Choir, who did an outstanding job in leading us in praising our Lord during our first Religious Education Mass.  They all sounded amazing! 
 
Thank you, also, to all of you, parents and family members, for your presence today in celebrating such a special day with us.  It was a great joy to see all of our families from our Religious Education Program come together as a community of faith here at St. Kevin.  In addition, it was an incredible blessing for us to have witnessed the complete initiation of Juan Pablo into our Catholic faith.
 
We look forward to coming together again in our future Religious Education Masses.  We pray for continued blessings for you and your families.
