St. Jude Catholic Church is sponsoring individuals for Christmas from our local community.  The Christmas Tree of Love is decorated with ornaments that represent the wishlist for a child or elderly adult.  Choose an ornament and purchase an item or two, or all, from the wishlist.  UNWRAPPED gifts can be dropped off at the church by Sunday, December 6th, after the 11:30 am Mass.  The Tree of Love is in our baptistery, however, if you are unable to come in person to take an ornament, there are two ways you can help:

You can sign up to sponsor a child or elderly adult by clicking on this link to SignUp Genius (Directions are listed below).  Each slot represents an individual.  Their ID codes either begin with C-   or   A-   .  Please include the ID code with any gifts.

Or you can make a financial contribution and we’ll do the shopping.  Donations can be dropped off at the office, mailed in, or submitted through Faith Direct (under Holiday Outreach).

If you have any questions, or need assistance, please contact the office at 540.891.7350 (M-F 8:30a to 4:30p) or email

Thank you for your generosity.
