The Giving Tree
We invite you to support the parish in providing lunch to the Shirlington Day Laborers through the Brown Bag Lunch Program. Please take a 'brown bag angel' ornament from the basket under the giving tree,
place your donation inside the ornament and hang it on the tree. The tree will be in the sanctuary throughout the Christmas season. Through your generosity, we are able to provide lunch once a week to 50 laborers.
