Christmas Giving Tree Program

Help OLPH's St. Vincent de Paul Society provides Christmas to bring Christmas to children in need.

It's easy. Simply choose a tag hanging from the trees located in the Narthex available on November 24th and 25th. The name of the requesting organization, the specific gift, and (most important) the return date is identified on the tag. Purchase the requested gifts and securely attach the tags and yarn to your wrapped gifts, then return donations to the Narthex on the Weekends of December 1-2, and 8-9. All wrapped donations must be received no later than the 11:00am Mass on Sunday, Dec. 9th!

Thank you for helping bring joy to the children of St. Wenceslaus in East Baltimore, St. Veronica’s in South Baltimore, the Franciscan Center, Sarah’s Hope shelter for mothers and children, and Grassroots Shelter here in Howard County.

Howard County Regional Advent Reconciliation Services:

Eucharistic Festival of Praise December 15 at 7:30 pm

We experience God's joy, peace, love, healing, and mercy when we lift our hearts to Him in praise. Join us for our monthly Festival of Praise - an evening of prayer, praise, worship and adoration before Jesus in the gift of the Eucharistic. It's an easy way to enter deeply into prayer as our musicians lead worship and we connect with Jesus who is truly present in the gift of the Eucharist. Join us for a wonderful and powerful evening of prayer!
