The readers of The Tablet stepped up in a big way this past holiday season, helping make this the brightest Christmas ever for children and families throughout the Diocese of Brooklyn and beyond.
For Our Lady of the Snows Catholic Academy Principal Joseph Venticinque, Christmas is all about kids helping kids. That’s why every year he encourages students to raise money to help those who are lacking presents at Christmas time. And there’s even more encouragement: The Tablet’s Bright Christmas fund helps supplement the money the students raise on their own.
The Bright Christmas tradition is one that Father Manuel de Jesus Rodriguez of Our Lady of Sorrows does not take lightly.
For more than 40 years, Providence House has helped better the lives of hundreds of individuals and families with the services they offer. And last year, they had a partner in one of their special efforts.
Thomas and Mary Powers have been dedicated supporters of The Tablet’s Bright Christmas campaign for decades.
The Tablet’s Bright Christmas campaign has been helping those in need for over half a century, and, for Father Guy Sbordone, the annual burst of momentum for generosity has become a much-anticipated family event.
Even after moving from New York City to the suburban town of Newtown Square, Pennsylvania, John and Eileen Gallo remain among The Tablet’s Bright Christmas fund’s most dedicated supporters. And it’s something they look forward to every year.
With the Christmas season approaching, it is a good time to reflect on this past year and thank God for all the blessings bestowed upon us. With that in mind, there are many among us who are especially impacted by the rising cost of healthcare, gasoline, groceries and other essential items this year.
The Tablet’s 2021 Bright Christmas campaign has officially begun! The yearly event is devoted to giving back to those less fortunate. Bright Christmas has been a tradition for over half a century, with the goal of ensuring that no child goes without a gift on Christmas.
