sharing tree

Hello St. Patrick Families!! 

Once again, we have two ways for families to participate in the Sharing Tree program this year.


One option is to take an ornament off the tree located in the back of the church the weekends of November 11/12 and November 18/19 and return gifts to the O’Gara Center on Sunday, December 10th. These gifts will be for the children of families we received from Catholic Charities.

The second option is to donate $50 Walmart or Target gift cards that will be distributed to children and families through Most Blessed Trinity food pantry. Here are a couple of options for contributing to the gift cards (Please note that all $ gift card donations must be received by Sunday, November 26th):

  1. Drop off Walmart or Target gift cards or checks made out to St. Patrick Women’s Group in the locked offertory boxes identified as “Offertory St. Patrick’s Parish” in the gathering area of the church. The doors to the church are open Monday-Friday from 10am-2pm.

  2. Send a check made out to St. Patrick Women’s Group to the parish office (991 S Waukegan Rd, Lake Forest, IL 60045) by December 2nd. We will purchase gift cards with money received.

  3. Make an online donation via credit card on our website by completing the form below. The funds collected will be used to purchase gift cards.


If you have any questions, please contact Kate Harper at or (703) 819-7880 or Sarah Harper at


Thank you in advance for your generosity!
