Coming Up at Incarnation

Thursday, December 7

5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Help pre-sort letters for Operation Santa. During the Christmas season, the post office collects letters written to “Santa” by children and families in need and makes them available for answering. Each year, we have a selection of letters to choose from in the Parish House. We pre-sort the letters and select those that ask for necessities, such as winter coats, shoes and smaller gifts. Let the Rev. Adrian Dannhauser know if you can join her at the Farley Post Office (421 8th Ave. at 31st St.) to pre-sort letterswhich will be made available to parishioners on December 10.
