Proceeds from St. Louis Parish’s 36th Annual Ornament Sale will benefit children at St. Damien Pediatric Hospital in Haiti.

This year’s sale features ceramic angels made by the people of Holy Childhood and wooden crosses made by the young people of St. Michael’s Woodshop. Holy Childhood is an agency that prepares adults and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities for maximum independence and integration into the community, and St. Michael’s Woodshop is a ministry through which mentors help inner-city teens in Rochester learn marketable woodworking skills as well as life skills.

Ornaments may be purchased for $8 apiece at several locations in Rochester, including the St. Louis Ministry Center at 64 S. Main St. in Pittsford. The ornaments will be available until New Year’s Day.
