Giving Tree Ministry

Giving Tree Details

St. Bridget Giving Tree Ministry has put up the Christmas Giving Tree in the back of Church near the entrance. When you walk into the Church, you will notice The Giving Tree covered with ornaments. If you are interested in providing a gift for someone in need, please select an ornament from the tree. Purchase a gift for the person or the organization that is listed on the ornament, place the gift in a gift bag and securely attach the ornament to the gift. Once the gift is ready, it can be placed under the tree in the narthex of Church on or before December 11.  

Here is some information on each organization that we will be supporting:

MELD (Mother’s Establishing Life’s Direction) is an organization in the Rockford area that services impoverished pregnant women ages 17-21. They provide transitional housing and parenting groups for these women and their children.

Washington Park Community Center is located on Rockford’s west side and works with underserved children from ages 5-17.

RPS 205 Home Visiting Program (Rockford Public Schools) is a program that services low income families with high needs children from birth to age 3.

St. Vincent De Paul Ministry is a parish ministry that reaches out with assistance to struggling families.

Thank you so much for your generosity. Small acts of hidden kindness can communicate the love of God in very special ways. May God bless you and the people who will be blessed by your loving kindness. If you have any questions, please contact Lynn in our Parish Office at (815) 633-6311 or
