Take the tag, buy the gift, and return the UNWRAPPED gift to the tree with the tag securely taped to the gift. You can include wrapping paper and ribbon if you like.
Your gifts will be delivered to “the Oz” on December 18. The agency staff then wraps and tags the gifts according to each man’s needs or requests.

November is Black Catholic History Month, a time to honor the many contributions Black Catholics have made and continue to make to our Church, nation, and communities. Among the many Black American Catholics who have dedicated their lives to spreading the Gospel, six are on the path to canonization. Multicultural Ministries of the Archdiocese of Seattle will sponsor a unique opportunity to learn about
Venerable Fr. Augustus Tolton, who became the first Black American priest in the United States through a live, one-man multimedia show.
Marriage Enrichment Tool:
Prayer | Couple & Individual
Prayer open us to relationship with God and to receive the grace we need to live fully alive in our marriage and family life. We certainly benefit from the prayers of others, but most profoundly, when we pray individually or as a couple for our own marriage. Start today, praying daily for a specific grace for your marriage. You’ll be surprised by what God will do. He is never outdone in generosity.
To Dive Deeper and for more tips and tools,
Rosary Every Friday
Join us in praying the rosary after the 8:45am Friday Mass.
Can't make it, but want us to pray for your intentions?
