“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

2023 Adopt-A-Family Stewardship Program

It is with great privilege that we are able to make Christmas merrier for families of our Sister Parish and families at St. Gregory the Great who are experiencing financial hardship. How does this program work? Sign up at the link below to ensure that you will be helping our Sister Parish.

We are asking parishioners to donate $25 per family member as we have been asked by our sister parish, Our Lady of Angels, to provide equity in gift-giving for the families. The program will run November 25th through December 10th. NO GIFT CARDS, please. We have found that “hackers” can too easily steal funds.

Collection of cash or checks will be the weekend of December 9th and 10th at all the Masses. Please put the donation in an envelope with the Family # and Family name (e.g. “#1 Hernandez Family”). 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!
