In the spirit of the Christmas Season, the Society of St. Vincent De Paul will be distributing Christmas gifts Dec. 18 and 19 to all the children in the Hill Country who otherwise would do without. Please bring your unwrapped gifts to the gathering space and leave them in the designated boxes no later than Sunday Dec. 14 or bring them to the Parish Office by Dec. 12. Donations of wrapping paper, gift bags, etc. would be greatly appreciated. If you would like to "adopt" the children of a family and provide gifts, please contact Maryetta Schmiedekamp at 830-336-4222. Your help in sharing toys and Christ's love with others in our community is most appreciated.
