At Christmas time, Christmas trees are placed at both St. Pat's Downtown and St. Pat's Crane Road as a way of sharing with those who are struggling because of poverty or difficult times. Ornaments describing gift items are placed on the trees. Parishioners are invited to buy the gift and return it to the church from which the ornament was taken. The ornaments are attached and the gifts are left in bags or wrapped. Gift cards can be placed in the collection or dropped off at the parish office on Crane Road. Parish volunteers sort and deliver the gifts with the love of Christ.
