Description

Every year during the Christmas season, Bethany School participates in its annual outreach program with a recreational facility in Lincoln Heights called St. Monica’s (a ministry of the Sisters of the Transfiguration).  We set up a “Giving Tree” in the dining room and hang ornaments on the tree which each have the name and age of a needy child from St. Monica’s.  Our students who wish to participate in this worthwhile program select an ornament from the Giving Tree, purchase gifts specifically for that child, wrap the gifts, and place them under the tree by the last day of school before our Christmas break.  The gifts are distributed to the children in January during Epiphany.
