Alternative Christmas Gift

The Christmas Season provides us with an opportunity to reclaim the true meaning of Christmas by helping to reduce the commercial nature of our celebration.  Instead of spending time and too much money buying things for loved ones who already have everything they need, we can give "alternative gifts" to those who have little or nothing.

Through our Alternative Gifts, Resurrection supports two particular charities: EMEAN (Eastern Montgomery Emergency Assitance Network) and our sister parish in Gros Morne, Haiti.

The Christmas card becomes your gift to whomever you choose to give the "alternative gift".  The card says, that in the recipient's name, you have given a gift to a family helped by EMEAN or a Haitian family supported by our sister parish partnership.
