Thank you for your contribution to the collection for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD)!

St. Lawrence School’s Library will host its annual Scholastic BOOK FAIR December 1 – Dec. 5. Parishioners and the general public are invited and encouraged to attend! This is a great opportunity to do some Christmas shopping for books for your children, grandchildren, or other special person. Scholastic Books supplies a “store” of new books and supplies. Proceeds (50% of total sales) will be used this year to purchase new classroom and Library/Media resources. The fair will be held in the school Library/Media Center and will be open for sales as follows:


Thursday, December 1 7:30 a.m. until 7:00 p.m.
Friday, December 2 7:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m

Monday, December 5 7:30 a.m. until 8:00 a.m. ONLY


Please note the SUNDAY hours - Stop in to shop before or after mass and avoid the mall crowds! Cash, checks, charge cards or debit cards will be accepted. Please enter the school building by the main entrance (Entrance#1) during school hours and by the playground doors (Entrance #5) after school hours. Thanks for your support!

 

If you are unable to attend in person, you may shop online until December 5th at www.scholastic.com/bf/saintlawrence and click on the “shop online” icon. Orders will be shipped to St. Lawrence School – you will be called when they arrive!

GIVING TREE CHRISTMAS PROGRAM

The Christmas Giving Trees are up and decorated with ornament tags for gifts requested by families being helped by the St. Lawrence Conference of St. Vincent de Paul. This project could not be accomplished without the support of our St. Lawrence parishioners. Your past generosity has been greatly appreciated and we look forward to another holiday season of sharing in 2016.

Each family will receive a Christmas Food Basket which will include paper products and toiletries. Each child in the family will receive three gifts - no gift to cost more than $25. DONATIONS OF KLEENEX, BATHROOM TISSUE, TOOTHPASTE AND SHAMPOO CAN BE BROUGHT TO CHURCH ANYTIME. BRING THEM UNWRAPPED AND WITH OR WITHOUT AN ORNAMENT TAG.

PROCEDURE:

  1. Select an ornament tag from the Giving Tree.
  2. Purchase the item written on the ornament.
  3. Gift wrap the gift and securely attach the ornament you selected to the outside of the package. The tag provides necessary identification for distribution.
  4. PLEASE RETURN YOUR WRAPPED GIFTS TO THE TREES IN ONE WEEK; BY SUNDAY, DEC. 4. (FINAL DEADLINE IS SUNDAY, DEC. 11)

Because the Narthex at St. Lawrence is locked during the week, we would suggest gifts be brought to Church when you attend Mass. PLEASE HONOR THE DEADLINE! Gifts not returned by Sunday, December 11 will have to be purchased by St. Vincent de Paul. Call GINNY HUGUENARD, 849-0757, if you have any questions regarding the Christmas Program or the tag taken from Giving Tree -- any problem can be worked out. THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP AND CO-OPERATION.
