The 5th annual Sacred Heart Christmas Market is scheduled for Saturday, December 9th. Families from across Grand Rapids who are experiencing difficult financial times and are recommended by support agencies, are invited to attend the Christmas Market. After touring the Christmas Market with their children, parents will be allowed to purchase donated gifts at a token cost. While parents purchase gifts, children will be treated to a Christmas party including seasonal treats, Christmas carols and craft making booths where they can make presents for their parents and other Christmas related items.
We believe that too many forces in our society already undermine the critical role that parents must play in the support of their children. We seek to reinforce the idea that parents are the first and normal providers for their families. So in asking them to purchase gifts at a token cost, it will be the parents themselves who will give the gifts to their children, rather than an institution outside the family.
Seeing the joy and smiles on the faces of the families who attend previous Christmas Markets put us all in the Christmas spirit and made all the work to put on this event worthwhile.
If you or your business would like to donate, please email or contact Barbara Menardie at Sacred Heart Academy (459-0948 or email@example.com)
