For over 30 years, our annual Christmas program has provided a means for parishioners to give presents to children of needy families within our parish, the Columbus Diocese, and throughout Reynoldsburg, Pataskala and Vinton County areas. Volunteers help create giving cards that parishioners select in order to purchase items for children. Volunteers also help collate and organize the gifts once they are returned to the church, and they help to prepare the gifts for delivery to our various organizational recipients. For more information, to request a Christmas adoptee, or to become involved as a volunteer in providing gifts to needy children, please use our form below to contact us.
