The holiday season brings several festive fundraisers to Queen of Angels. Support our parish ministries by shopping at the SPRED Holiday Nut Sale after weekend Masses, the Christmas Tree Sale in our parking lot, and a Stella and Dot Jewelry show on December 7 in the Voss Center. Our ongoing Shop with the Angels gift card program and online shopping through iGive.com are simple ways to send a percentage of your holiday purchases back to the church or school. Please support Queen of Angels by thinking of us when you're looking for holiday treats, trimmings and trinkets this year.
