Before Easter parishioners can choose a needy child or children by age and gender and provide an Easter Basket to be delivered by a service agency. It is a fun and wonderful way to brighten the Easter holiday for a young child. Last year 802 Easter baskets were given to RAIN in Camarillo, Lutheran Services and Many Mansions in Thousand Oaks and Catholic Charities of Ventura, Oxnard and Moorpark.
We ask that the baskets be wrapped in cellophane and be ready to give to a child. The baskets can be store bought or handmade for children from infants to 13 years. Please deliver baskets to the parish hall before and after all Masses on the scheduled collection dates. If you miss the collection weekend, please deliver your baskets to the Pastoral Office. All parishioners are encouraged to donate an Easter Basket or two! We do take monetary donations with which we will make baskets. Please make out to AAF Easter.
