We are happy to extend an invitation to everyone in the parish collaborative to participate in this year’s St. John Christmas Wish Program. During this holiday season, we hope to grant wishes for more than 400 children! Each child receives a new outfit and a special Christmas Wish gift they have requested. These gifts will go to the youngsters in our own parishes, as well as in our sister parishes of St. Katherine Drexel in Roxbury, St. Patrick in Lowell, St. Patrick in Brockton and the Julie Family Learning Program in Boston.
You can help make Christmas Wishes come true this holiday season by: sponsoring a family or an individual child (you will be given specific instructions for purchasing clothing and gifts); donating to the program; or volunteering to shop for children who have not been matched with sponsors, using donated funds. Please visit our Christmas Wish page to sign up to help or to make a donation.
Questions? Please contact Deirdre O’Kelly-Lynch (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Sarah Connolly at the Parish Office. We give our heartfelt thanks to our sponsors, donors and volunteers. Your gift will make a difference in the life of a child this Christmas.
If your family needs assistance this holiday season, you are invited to complete a confidential applicant form.
