Samaritan’s Purse / Operation Christmas Child – Christmas in a Shoebox Appeal:
The 2020 Christmas-in-a-shoebox season is starting this Sunday. Due to Covid-19 even more children are deprived as the poor communities are typically worst hit by the pandemic. Hence, we feel compelled more than ever to help. Due to the social distancing and sanitary precautions, we will be running the appeal until the end of October 2020, but in a slightly different way. If you wish to fill your own box, empty boxes with instructions will be available on a table outside the main doors of the church at the Sunday Masses.. Filled boxes can be dropped off during any English speaking mass on Sundays from mid September until the end of October.
Unfortunately, there will be no stand to purchase pre-packed boxes this year. Instead, you can make a donation and we will pack the boxes for the amount received. The base price for a filled shoebox, including transportation fees, is 30 Euros. All boxes are packed with great care and with good quality items. Samples will be on display. You can transfer the money to the parish account via the Giving tab on catholic.lu and mention “Shoebox appeal 2020” in the reference. Thank you for your support – Shoebox team.
