Project Angel Tree
A Ministry of Prison Fellowship
Pick up Angel gift tags Nov. 26 & 27
Bring gifts to church Dec. 3 & 4
Angel Tree is an opportunity to bring the love of Jesus to children in our area who have a parent incarcerated in the prison system. Queen of Peace has participated in this project for many years, providing gifts of toys and clothing to around 100 children each Christmas season. The gifts we provide are delivered to the children on behalf of the prisoner, with a personal note from the parent. We act as the “in between angels” from parent to child. Incarcerated parents choose to participate in this program through Prison Fellowship. You can participate by choosing an Angel gift tag, buying either a toy or item of clothing, wrapping the gift, and returning it to the parish on or before 11:00 am Sunday December 4th. Volunteers from our parish will be delivering the gifts after the last Mass on Dec. 4th. You may also choose to volunteer with the gift collection before any of the Masses the weekend of Dec. 3 & 4, help with the delivery of gifts, help write the notes from the parents, or write the cards we send to the prisoners. To volunteer go to the QP website and click on the Angel Tree, or the link provided in the QP weekly online newsletter. Angel gift tags will be available on our website by Nov. 19 and in the Gathering Space after all Masses on Nov. 26 and 27. Questions? Contact Deb at firstname.lastname@example.org or (608)244-3210.

This thank you note was received from one of the Project Angel Tree parents we served last Christmas season:
“I received your letter and my family received all of the beautiful and thoughtful gifts from you and your caring parish. I personally would like to thank you. I am very grateful and appreciative. I am so grateful because you allowed me to be helpful to my family. Even with me not there in person my presence was felt and the love I have was present. That is a priceless gift to me and I thank you greatly for all your help. The children loved the gifts and the parents were grateful. Just wanted to tell you and your staff, please, please keep up the good work. We really do need you and we appreciate the service you provide.
Forever grateful, J. H.”
