Thank you to everyone who donated to our giving baskets this year, we look forward to continuing the tradition again next year!

Giving Basket time is here again! Thank you for providing Christmas gifts for people in need throughout the Lexington area. Below you will find a list of items that would be most helpful as local charities support the community. Your gift will help clients in need for The Hope Center, The Catholic Action Center, Eastern State Hospital, and Birthright of Lexington.

Please select a gift or gifts from the list and return them to the Newman Center unwrapped. Place your gifts around the baptismal font before or after Mass.

Please Note: All gifts must be dropped off at the Newman Center no later than 8 PM on December 12th.
