CHRISTMAS WISH 2018
It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year! Christmas Wish 2018 for St. Paul’s: November 28th to December 13th.
For many years, Blessed Sacrament families have generously shared the Christmas spirit with those in need, through the Christmas Wish. St. Paul's Basilica, considered Toronto's Mother Church, is a downtown Toronto parish, located near Parliament and Queen Streets. The oldest Catholic community in the Archdiocese, St. Paul's parish has always served the spiritual and social needs of immigrants and the poor.
BSCS supplies grocery cards and gift cards that are distributed by The St. Vincent de Paul Society, to help 500 disadvantaged families of all faiths, living in and around St. Paul's Parish.
How to participate:

December 3 - 14
Hang your new mittens, hats, scarves, and socks on or under the Mitten Tree in the foyer, generously donated by
the Duras Family. Keep a St. Paul’s student warm this winter. Often students at this school have only one pair of
mitts. If they are lost, they are not easily replaced. This allows the school to make sure that all the little hands and
heads stay warm all winter.
All Mitten Tree donations will be distributed to St. Paul’s School.
