Lenten Giving Tree 2021

During Lent we spread God’s Word through our good works around the world. As in past years, the St. Isidore parish family is sponsoring two charities and supporting God’s people from around the world who are in desperate need.

Two of the three Lenten Giving Trees will be set
up in the large gathering space with envelopes hanging from their branches, and the third tree will be set up by the Romeo Plank Mary’s Prayer Garden entrance. The envelopes will have instructions for you to choose the charity that you would like your donation to help. There is an informational flyer placed in each envelope for easy reference to each charity. The trees will be set up from February

17th, Ash Wednesday, through Sunday, March 21st. Envelopes will be collected through Palm Sunday, March 28th. This year, due to COVID-19, please return your donation in the regular collection baskets after mass. If you are donating by check, please make the check payable to: St. Isidore. On the memo line indicate which charity you would like to sponsor. Donations are tax-deductible and 100% of the contribution goes for services directly involving God’s people we are sponsoring.
