Share Your Christmas 2017

Help ensure a merry Christmas for someone in need in our community! Our annual Share Your Christmas ministry begins the weekend of November 11-12 and concludes December 2-3.

After all Masses on November 11-12, support the Share Your Christmas Ministry by selecting:

  • a Share Your Christmas sticker from the Christmas board.  Bring your sticker to the ministry volunteers at the table in the Atrium and exchange it for a RED or GREEN “wish list” tag. The “wishes” are from 170 needy people in Durham County who are affiliated with Durham Social Services and Catholic Charities
  • a Baby Gift tag or Grocery Card tag by going directly the ministry volunteers, where the YELLOW Baby Gift tags or BLUE Grocery Card tags will be handed to you (no sticker required).  The baby and grocery card gifts help hundreds of needy people in Durham county affiliated with Catholic Charities, Welcome Baby, Baby Love, and Pregnancy Support Services
  • If you are away November 11-12, other arrangements can be made for obtaining a gift tag.*

The suggested amount to spend is a range depending on the tag you choose:

  • RED or GREEN - $65
  • YELLOW - $25-$50
  • BLUE - $10-$50

Return your gift December 2-3 during any Mass you attend, but no later than the 11am Sunday Mass:

  • RED and GREEN tag gifts must be wrapped or in a gift bag with the tag (or recipients’ name and Share Your Christmas number) CLEARLY and SECURELY attached to the outside of the gift to ensure proper delivery.  If you have more than one package for a single tag, they must be secured together.
  • YELLOW tag gifts must be in a gift bag with the yellow tag CLEARLY and SECURELY attached to the outside of the bag. 
  • BLUE tag grocery cards are to be placed in an envelope with the dollar amount of the gift card on the outside of the envelope.
  • If you are away December 2-3, other arrangements can be made for returning your gift early.*
  • PLEASE DO NOT BE LATE RETURNING YOUR GIFT!  Volunteer gift delivery drivers will pick up all gifts after the 11am Mass on December 3 to deliver them.
