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 image of the Eucharist that is captured in the stained glass windows to the left of the St. Pius X shrine in our parish church. St. Pius X is known for many great achievements as pope, but especially for encouraging Catholics to receive the Eucharist more often.

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 beautiful image of the Sacred Heart that is captured in the stained glass windows to the left of the Sacred Heart shrine in our parish church. This depiction of a heart on fire and surrounded by a crown of thorns symbolizes Jesus’ love for us, which is said to be so strong that His heart is on fire for us.
