Novena of the Immaculate Conception
November 29 to December 7
Even though it will be conducted very differently because of the pandemic, Hall Township Food Pantry is planning to again provide Christmas gifts for the children of our neighbors in need. This year we are asking the parishioners of Nativity of Our Lord to help us out by purchasing hats, scarves, gloves and mittens for children from pre-school to eighth grade.
We will have a box in the vestibule of the church, and we ask that you deposit them there by December 6. Please leave them in the bag from the store, as that makes it easier to collect the items. If you prefer, you can send a donation to the pantry at 500 N. Terry St., Spring Valley, and we will purchase items for you.
Thank you for your continued support of our work. We can only continue feeding the hungry
because we have a generous community behind us.
Our Parish is also working this year with Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Peoria to help families in need during the Christmas season. This GIFT CARD giving tree can be found in the church vestibule area with ornaments requesting GIFT CARDS for families, teenagers, children and babies.
Please return your ornament with respective gift card by December 3rd. Thank you for helping families in need!
