The Adopted Family Christmas tree is in the mezzanine area adorned with tags to support the four families that St. Elizabeth’s has adopted through Catholic Charities this year. (Four single moms, total of 13 children ranging in age from 10mths to 14 years. Some of the families have endured domestic violence, which led to single parent homes and one mom is going to nursing school.) Parishioners are asked to pick gift tag(s) off the tree, purchase the gift(s), and return the wrapped gift(s) with the tag attached by December 10th. Thank you for your generosity and kindness! Please call Libby Charvat if you have questions 785-643-5237.
Throughout the Advent season, a tree sponsored by Birthright of Salina will be in the mezzanine area of the church. Birthright is an emergency program which offers aid to area women.
