  • Parish Giving Tree Begins on November 25
    Our Christian Service Committee will once again be sponsoring the “Giving Tree” to spread the holiday cheer to those less privileged. St. Joseph Parish supplies gifts to 20 local families. For some, these may be the only gifts they receive.
    The tree in the gathering space of the church contains ornaments with gift suggestions and each person or family wishing to participate should take an ornament.
    Sign-outs will begin on November 25th after the 5:30PM Mass and will continue until all ornaments are taken. Gifts should be returned to the church no later than December 15th.  The size, preference and age of the recipient will be on the ornament, plus a toy or game.
    TREE.  Items should be purchased and returned to the tree in an appropriate box, UNWRAPPED, and with the
    ornament attached.  All gifts will be wrapped and distributed to the families.
    Donations of wrapping paper, tape and cash are also always welcome. Any money received will be used to purchase additional items for the families’ enjoyment.
    Suggestions: Place gift cards in a small gift bag or in an envelope.  Please don’t be judgmental...if an item seems too costly, consider sharing the cost with a friend.  Any questions, please contact Lois Moeller at 973.696.4049 or Mary Bono at 973.696.9713.
