We are thrilled to announce this is the 57th year of the St. James the Apostle Christmas Basket Program benefitting our DuPage County neighbors who are served by Catholic Charities, as well as by our St. James St. Vincent DePaul Society!

This year we will be going back to the traditional way of doing the Christmas Basket Program and it is our hope you will consider adopting a family for Christmas.

Our goal is to serve over 200 families again for Christmas of 2021. Family selection will begin the first weekend of November, and will continue throughout that month until all families are claimed. Gifts are due on Friday, December 10th.

We invite you to get creative this year and think about possibilities outside the box. Have you even considered joining with members of your book club, scouting troop, workplace or extended family to adopt a large family together? 2021 may be the right year to begin this kind of wonderful new tradition to bless others in our local community!

QUESTIONS? Call Dawn Fitzpatrick at 803-325-5903 or visit us at the Christmas Basket Program Table in the narthex after weekend Masses beginning November 6th & 7th.
