Our Lady of the Hills

Adoration and Benediction

Every Monday from 1-3 P.M. Adoration will take place with Benediction at 2:50.  Stop in for however long you want.  

Giving Tree

The GIVING TREE will again be set up this Holiday Season, on the weekend of November 26, November 27th for the children and families of 18 DEGREES, (formerly called BERKSHIRE CHILDREN AND FAMILY SERVICE) of Hampshire and all Western MA; the residents of the RIVER VALLEY REST HOME in Florence, and the Goshen HILLTOWN FOOD PANTRY. Any parishioner who is interested in providing a gift is asked to choose a tag off the tree and return the gift and place it under the tree.

The tag includes the first name, age and size of the child, and the child’s wish, and the first name and wish of the Rest Home residents.

We have been asked to follow a few guidelines by 18 DEGREES (Berkshire Children and Family Service) and the Hilltown Food Pantry. First, all gifts or toys should be new items. Secondly, please attach a separate, removable tag to each wrapped gift or gift bag (gift bags are preferred) indicating the following: Staff name, child’s name, age and sex, and the donor code (OLTH) and list complete contents. The nametag should be securely attached to the gift. (You may re-attach the original tag which was taken from the tree) Please wrap your gift with one end left open so staff can check the package contents. Third, no personal messages other than holiday greetings should be included inside or outside the wrapped gift or gift bag.

In order to help staff with timely delivery of these gifts, we have been asked to deliver the gifts to the Agency by Monday, December 12th; therefore, all gifts should be returned to the Giving Tree no later than Sunday, December 11th.

The gifts for the Rest Home Residents should also be wrapped and tagged with the recipient name and destination. (Again, you may re-attach the original tag which was taken from the tree) Delivery to the Rest Home will also take place on December 12th. 18 Degrees (Berkshire Children and Family Service) recipients, River Valley Rest Home residents, and the children of the Hilltown Food Pantry wish to thank you for your generosity and support of the GIVING TREE. We know it will make a tremendous difference in the lives of the children, and the elderly this Holiday Season.

Florence Bank continues to offer a program that annually distributes $125,000 among local non-profit organizations.  They call it their Annual Customers' Choice Community Grants. Any qualifying nonprofit organization that receives 50 or more customer votes receives a proportional share of the funds.  Historically many non-profits have been awarded between $1,000 and $5,000.  In 2021 Our Lady of the Hills Parish received  $3,563.63 because you voted for us!  Way-to-Go!  The Finance Council urges parishioners to participate again on behalf of OLH by voting.  Voting is  available online at https://www.florencebank.com/vote
