The Jesse Tree became part of the Advent journey for Holy Family when church members found themselves in serious financial straits during the holiday season. The Jesse Tree continues to answer the needs of extended families both in and outside of our faith community. A Christmas tree is decorated with ornaments labeled with gift card amounts from various retail stores. Holy Family parishioners purchase the cards, which are presented to families who are then able to enjoy the holiday shopping and giving experience.
