Just Can't Wait for Easter?

Easter Basket Ministry hops into action.  Hello Easter Basket  Fans ! You can enjoy the fun of an Easter Basket and share it with someone who needs it too.  Perhaps you would like to indulge in a little pre-Easter fun and share some of the anticipation of rebirth at Easter with others. 

We will be renewing the Easter Basket ministry this year and need your help. Here is how it works: Parishioners bring an Easter Basket they either create themselves or purchase to donate to church on Sunday, March 17th (St. Patrick’s Day!).

People can either purchase them to take the basket home for a friend or loved one or donate them to a child at Mary’s Center. 

We can help share the spirit of Easter and Springtime with a child. Suggestions for baskets: books (English and Spanish); small, new toys such as: a jump rope, chalk, coloring books and crayons, or a plush animal. Children certainly enjoy sweets as well, but let’s try not to be overly generous in the sweets area. Use your imagination and make your basket memorable – and the one that everyone wants to purchase. It is helpful to wrap them in cellophane but if you can’t find any or don’t have time, we will have extra to use on the day of the sale, March 17. 

All donations will support our youth program; so bring your an Easter Basket, purchase an Easter Basket, or do both; and support our community of children. Questions? Contact Dan Sealy rangerdans@msn.org, Heidi Mayor hhm1984@gmail.com or Emily Guthrie eguthrie@stmargaretsdc.org .
