Thanks all of you for your support of our annual toy giveaway. The Christmas Star Tree was a huge success and lots of very nice toys were donated. We also received quite a few nice toys for the 8 to 12-year age group, making a lot of kids happy this Christmas. I commend all the Parishioners, Paraclete students, Knights of Columbus guys, and Vincentians that donated their time on this and numerous other SVDP projects over the last year.

God Bless & Thanks Again!
