As we celebrate this Advent Season it has been our tradition to share our blessings with those less fortunate. This year, more than ever, there is a great need to bring a little Christmas joy to all those in need in our community. 

Our Angel Advent Trees will be displayed in the Narthex beginning Thanksgiving week, November 23rd. We will begin collecting donations the weekend, November 26th & 27th, and for the next few weeks as we collect gifts for several organizations in our community. Some of those include HOPE’s Christmas in the City and JMJ Pregnancy Center.

Your help and generosity are appreciated as we look forward to warming hearts and providing smiles to those around us. 

Please feel free to drop your UNWRAPPED donations on the tables labeled ANGEL GIFTS in the Narthex at any time or at the Parish Office during business hours Monday – Thursday 10 AM – 5 PM, Friday 10 AM – 3 PM on or before December 8th with the corresponding Angel tag.


Most Precious Blood Families in Need of Christmas Help

If you are having a hardship and would like some help for Christmas, please come to the Parish Office and speak to Maria Bahr at mbahr@oviedocatholic.org or Lillian Izaguirre at LIzaguirre@oviedocatholic.org to sign up for MPB Families for Christmas assistance. All information collected is kept in strict confidence. Only registered MPB families qualify for assistance. If you have signed up for assistance through HOPE HELPS or Christmas In the City, unfortunately, you are not eligible for assistance.


Adopting Families in Need for Christmas

Please prayerfully consider adopting a family in need of assistance this Christmas. If you would like to adopt a local Most Precious Blood family for Christmas or would like additional information as to what this entails, please contact Lillian Izaguirre at the parish office at 407-365-3231 or via email at LIzaguirre@oviedocatholic.org no later than Friday, December 9th. If you would like to make a monetary donation towards MPB Families in need instead of shopping, please contact Lillian as well.  Thank you for your generosity!
