This year’s St. Paul Giving Tree Program has begun! The Giving Tree is an Advent tradition spreading Christmas cheer from our parish to hundreds of people through several local organizations.  Each year recipients express their deepest appreciation for the generosity of our parishioners. 

There are two boards in the St. Paul Sanctuary with tag requests.  Once the Christmas trees are put up over Thanksgiving weekend, the tags will be transferred to the trees and will remain up through December 4.

Gift Cards: Some organizations have requested gift cards again this year in lieu of individual gifts.   If you would like to participate by giving a gift card, please put the gift card in an envelope marked with the organization’s name and leave them in a basket that will be marked for gift cards by the trees.  Three organizations have requested gift cards:  St. Katharine Drexel (gift cards to Target); Walker Cares (gift cards to Target or Amazon);  Sunset Point Camp (gift cards to Target, Walmart, Old Navy, or Stop & Shop).  All gift cards must be returned to St. Paul by Sunday,  December 11. 

Gift Requests: If you would like to obtain a tag with a specific gift request, there will still be many on the boards and trees through December 4th.   If you participate, please fill out each tag with your name and phone number, and LEAVE the small detachable portion in the box near the board or tree.  Keep the remaining portion of the tag and attach it securely to the wrapped gift so it can be sorted and distributed to the correct location and person.  All gifts must be returned to St. Paul by Sunday, December 11.

For more information or to volunteer, please contact Donna Norwood at or 781-237-9956. 

Volunteers, please note: Sorting will be at 9:30am on Monday, December 12 in the St. Paul Parish Hall.

Thank you again to all our Parishioners throughout the Collaborative who give so generously each year to these organizations in need.
