Christ Child Shower

The annual Christ Child Shower at St. Leander will take place December 5 and 6. This is an opportunity to share your Christmas giving outside of your family with those less fortunate. The St. Vincent de Paul Society will distribute the gifts to the families in our parish area along with the Christmas food boxes.

  • For children: Gifts of toys, books and games.
  • For teenagers: Soaps, lotions, shampoo, nail polish, jewelry, CD’s, gloves, candy and gift cards.

Gifts are especially needed for boys ages 1 to 16. We ask that NO clothes be given.

Please place your UNWRAPPED gift in a gift bag and bring to the weekend masses on December 5 and 6 or to “Breakfast with Santa” in Ryan O’Connell Hall on December 6th. Thank you for your generosity.
