“They were overjoyed at seeing the star, and on entering the house they saw the child with Mary his mother. They prostrated themselves and did him homage. Then they opened their treasures and offered him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.”
Matthew 2:10-11

As part of our sister parish outreach program, the Adopt-a-Family ministry provides Christmas presents to needy families who attend Our Lady of Angels parish.

Many families are the recipients of gifts provided by parishioners of Saint Gregory the Great. For some of the families, these will be the only gifts they receive. The goal of this ministry is to share our many blessings and to build a relationship with our sister parish.

Program Details

2022 Adopt-A-Family Stewardship Program

It is time again for the St. Gregory the Great Adopt-A-Family Stewardship Program. This program provides our parishioners with an opportunity to share their gifts with those who are in need by sponsoring families who may not otherwise be able to have a joyful Christmas. Families from St. Gregory the Great who are having financial hardship are encouraged to apply.

How does this program work? Because it was quite successful last year, we are again using Sign-Up Genius and asking
parishioners to commit to the purchase of gift cards. We have been asked by our sister parish, Our Lady of Angels, to provide equity in gift giving for the families. To accommodate this request, we are asking parishioners to purchase $25 gift cards to Target and/or Walmart. We will happily accept as many gift cards as you wish to donate. The need continues to be great this year due to the increase in the cost of living. The program will run December 3rd through December 11th.
Collection of gift cards will be the weekend of December 10th and 11th at all the masses. Please put the gift cards in an envelope with the Family # and Family name (e.g. “#1Hernandez Family”) and gift card amount on each of the gift cards. We have 100 families in need this year so please scroll down the list in Sign-Up Genius and select the family that you wish to support.

If you’d rather submit a check or cash, please do so and submit it to the parish office. Please make checks out to “St. Gregory the Great” and write “Adopt-A-Family” on the memo line.

The Sister Parish Outreach Ministry thanks you for your support!
