The parish is continuing its Christmas Giving Tree tradition at St. Lawrence Church. In the front of the church is a board with Christmas tree tags that identify gifts needed for children and their parents serviced by the Nazareth Child Care Center in Jamaica Plain, which is a program run by Catholic Charities of Boston. Please take a tag or more if you can and purchase the item shown. Plan to bring the gifts unwrapped to St. Lawrence Church no later than at the 9 a.m. Mass Sunday, December 19 (along with the tag if you still have it) so that the gifts can be delivered later that day. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
