Christmas Giving Tree Update

Our Christmas Giving Tree will look a little different this year due to COVID. We will not have our traditional tree in the Gathering Area with ornaments for people to take.

For this year’s Giving Tree, we are asking all who are able and interested in participating, to purchase $20-$25 gift cards to any of the following stores:

Price Chopper

These gift cards will be due back to church by Sunday, December 6, 2020 to be delivered to the organizations the following day. You can get these gift cards to us by placing them in the newly set up box in the Gathering Area (where the Christmas Tree typically sits behind the baptismal font), bringing them into the office Monday through Thursday between 9am and 4pm or mailing them to us at:

St. Mary’s Church, Crescent
86 Church Hill Road
Waterford, NY 12188

Thank you in advance for your caring and sharing as we look
forward to the holiday season!


Thank you to all who participated this year with our Giving Tree!  Your gifts help those less fortunate have a blessed Christmas at various area shelters, veteran associations, community maternity and many more.  The generosity of St. Mary’s, Crescent never ceases.  May you all have a Blessed Christmas as well!
