Christmas Program

Parish Giving Tree
and St. Vincent de Paul Christmas Program

- St. John Chrysostom and St. Elizabeth Seton combined parishes

We are happy to announce that the Society of St. Vincent de Paul Christmas Program and the Giving Tree will be running again this year.

For the Christmas Program that serves our St. Vincent de Paul families, your donation will continue to go towards the purchase of grocery gift cards for parents and gift cards from a local store so that parents can purchase a gift for the children in their family. This program will now also provide gift cards to adults who register whom we have helped over the course of the year and who did not previously benefit under the Family Christmas Program.

For the Giving Tree Program, we will continue having the Giving Tree at the back of both churches decorated with stars for gifts for those in long-term care facilities, seniors and others in need living in our community.  Although backed and supported by your Society of St Vincent de Paul, this program is primarily the organizational initiative of the two parishes in Newmarket, working together with the Society of St Vincent de Paul.

Any funds left over after Christmas will go towards our general fund to help individuals and families in need in the coming year.

As much as ever, your gift or monetary donation will make a difference in the lives of those often left out at this special time of year.  If you wish to make an online donation towards our Christmas Program or towards our food card program for next year, please click the DONATE button.
