On Sunday, November 27, parishioners of all ages are invited to come make Advent wreaths together from 9:30-10:30 AM in the Parish Hall. There is no need to sign up. Thirty wreath forms will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. One wreath per household please and a $5 donation would be welcome.
Please bring supplies from home, such as ribbon, pinecones, floral/craft picks and sprays, and additional greenery from your garden, to personalize your wreath and to share with others. You will also find it very helpful to bring small pruning scissors.
Join us on November 27 as we celebrate the beginning of Advent and a New Church Year.

Shoe Drive to Benefit Homeless Students in Gainesville City Schools
There is a sizable homeless student population in Gainesville City Schools. Our outreach committee met recently with the liaison to these students, Ms. Abbegale Malone, MSW and found out there is a pressing need for shoes. New or gently used athletic shoes may be brought to the parish office Monday through Thursday between 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM or to worship on Sundays. Sizes needed are: men’s size 6; women’s sizes 9 and 9.5; boys and girls sizes 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10. We will collect shoes until mid-December.
Donations for the Hispanic Alliance
Our Outreach partner, The Hispanic Alliance, is requesting donations of children’s winter coats and baby clothes (new or gently used), as well as infant formula. Your help in supporting our Latino community would be very much appreciated. Items may be dropped off at the parish office Monday through Thursday between 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM or to worship on Sundays.
