Annual Christmas Card Appeal

Please consider a gift to the St. Sebastian Parish Foundation during this Christmas Season

Parishioners, school families, alumni, and friends of the parish and school are encouraged to support our parish and school during the holidays with a gift to the St. Sebastian Parish Foundation. Each year, the Foundation sends out two Christmas cards featuring images from our beautiful buildings and parish campus.


Parish Appeal

The first Christmas card is mailed to every parishioner as well as benefactors of the Foundation. Gifts to this appeal are a critical source of funding for the Foundation’s Unrestricted Fund, which provides support for the areas of greatest need in the parish. Benefactors may also choose to support one of the Foundation's 70+ funds, scholarships and endowments. This year's cover for the parish card features a beautiful stained glass window that is located in the church vestibule. This window depicts the Holy Spirit (dove), the Gospel Book, and a flame, which represent how He is still present among us today.

Alumni Appeal

The second Christmas card is mailed to all of our alumni. Gifts to this appeal support the Alumni Scholarship Endowment, which helps defray the costs of tuition for all of our school families. This year's cover for the alumni card features a stained glass window, which is located at the base of the choir loft steps, that depicts Christ symbolically and beautifully as the Tree of Life, complete with roots and branches. We are blessed with the heritage and history of our parish. Our alumni are an integral part of our parish, and we are grateful for the generations of families who formed the roots of our faith community.
