St. Matthew Cathedral Parish will again sponsor a giving tree to benefit the Crib Club of the Women’s Care Center (WCC). The tree will be set up from December 1 to December 24 in the Miami Street vestibule. Please join our parish community by picking an ornament from the giving tree and purchasing the item listed for donation to the Crib Club.

Please Note:
The WCC distributes the donations through their Crib Club and uses an incentive program in which pregnant women and parents of young children earn vouchers by attending prenatal appointments, educational classes and participating in other activities that foster good parenting. The vouchers are then used to “buy” Crib Club items.

Please do not wrap the donations since they are not for a specific baby, child or mother.

Matthew, in his story of Jesus’ birth, reflects great anticipation for the coming of Jesus, the “son of David, son of Abraham.” Join us for an Advent Bible study as we unpack the infancy narrative of Jesus in Matthew’s Gospel (Matthew 1-2) and discover Matthew’s unique features of the newborn Jesus in light of his Old Testament forebearers.

Dates: Wednesday, December 18, 2019
