Wise Men’s Purse

December 2nd through December 13th, 2019

The Wise Men’s Purse is a community collection that will be distributed among Saint Mary’s Catholic School faculty and staff in celebration of Christmas. This collection is a fair and equitable way to share the generosity of many, and to do so in a manner in accordance with the giving policies set forth by the Diocese of Richmond. While individual classroom teachers are readily identified by students as “their” teacher, each teacher is supported by colleagues who create a loving and caring team. It is the PTO Board’s desire to acknowledge the contributions each faculty and staff member makes to the success of every child at Saint Mary’s.

Participation in the Wise Men’s Purse is voluntary. Donations may be made online or by check & sent into the office labeled “The Wise Men’s Purse” between December 2nd and December 13th.
