St. Vincent de Paul Christmas Boxes
It seems we are well on our way to meeting our goal to serve 125 families (or more) this Christmas – thanks to all of you who have taken home a food box to fill. As we did last year, we are asking you to fill one box (or shopping bags) with items on our list and SVDP will fill a second box with fresh produce and other perishables. Here is what is left to do:
Bring the box (or bags) to Celebration Hall or the Parish Office by December 15 (preferably earlier if possible). Mid-week deliveries can be made to the parish office. We will have people to assist you in unloading or carrying the boxes to Celebration hall – please do not hesitate to ask us if you need help.
On Saturday, December 21, please come to Celebration hall at 9:00AM with your family or friends and take boxes to needy families. If you are by yourself, we will try to pair you up with someone else. Each family will get two boxes of food, one provided by a parishioner and one provided by SVdP (large families may receive more boxes), plus a $25 gift card to purchase a main dish for Christmas dinner. This is exactly how we have done this program in the past and it is an excellent way to start your holiday gift giving!!
If you know of someone that could benefit from our Christmas boxes, please have them call 503-595-2292 between the hours of 9:00AM and 3:00PM.
Questions? Feel free to contact Roberta, Dan or Don – our numbers are in the bulletin.
God bless you for all you do for others!!

Christmas Eve Family Choir!
Get a plush front row seat at the 4pm Family Mass on Christmas Eve--just sing in the choir! Sing next to your child/grandchild, or just come on your own. All ages are welcome, no experience necessary. This is a wonderful way to participate in an important ministry in a low-pressure situation. All music provided.
This was a very popular choir last year, and we reached the overflow point with choir room (about 25 people). If you would like to participate, contact me at email@example.com to reserve your spot, and get the important info!
