The Christmas by the SEA Fair is planned December 1th, 9AM – 1PM
Supporting Parish Scholars
Each year, parishioners share their time and talent to create Christmas greens, crafts, gifts and sweets to raise money to recognize our top college-bound Seniors for service, scholarship and faith. Last year $6000 was raised and awarded to Parishioners Jahn Pothier, Grace Stephens, Sophie Gurney, Kathleen McLean, Christopher Savino, Chase Guard, Emma Higgins, and Sophie Hubbard.
There is a Drop Box in the Church Hall at St. Anthony’s kitchen where you can drop off donations of the following:
-Baskets, Mason Jars
-Shells, pine cones
-Christmas Ribbons or fabric
-Coupons/Gift Cards to Michael’s or AC Moore

Faith Formation Baskets
Every year the Faith Formation Raffle Baskets are a big hit at the Fair as people of all ages pick their favorites to try and win, and 100% of the proceeds go right back to students thru the scholarships. Each Grade contributes items to create one-of-a-kind thematic baskets packaged beautifully for the lucky winners. Below are themes for each class’ basket – you may donate a purchased item that connects to the theme, or make a cash donation and the Raffle Basket Chairs will shop for you.

Lend a Hand to Chair People
It takes a village! There are numerous ways to help and all don’t involve a glue gun! From serving lunch to selling raffle tickets to setting up or hanging ad posters, many of our table chairs could use a little help… and you just may make a new friend along the way. Feel free to contact any of the folks directly if you have a specific interest.
