Angel Tree Set-Up and Sorting, Packing, and Delivery 
Our parish has always been overwhelmingly generous with our Angel Tree Project, and for that we thank you! If you are interested in helping to sort, pack, and/or deliver donations to the various locations (Open Door Mission or Essential Pregnancy Services), please sign-up below. Parent and family participation is encouraged. This opportunity would count towards in or out-of-parish service hours for our Confirmation candidates.

Ring the Bell! For Salvation Army
November 26th, November 27th, or December 10th, December 11th* at local Hy-Vee stores
Looking for a fun community service opportunity to do as a family? Look no further! Hearts Open Wide has reserved a block of times on four different dates for volunteers to ring bells at the Hy-Vees on 178th and Q or 180th and Pacific. A parent or guardian must participate with their child for this event. This would count towards “out of parish” hours for our Confirmation candidates.

Reserving your spot to “Ring the Bell!” is easy!
1. Visit
2. Create an account or log-in
3. Select “I’m ringing with a group!”
4. Enter our group code: HOW (When entering the code, be sure to hit the blue Submit button, and not the large "Find My Group" button!)
*PLEASE RESERVE YOUR TIME SLOT ASAP! Other groups are requesting these times, so if we can’t fill them we will need to release our remaining slots.
