The Tree of Miracles Makes Its Debut!

On Sunday, March 10th, the Tree of Miracles made its debut at the Chapel of San Lorenzo Ruiz. The Tree of Miracles is a fundraiser that helps support FAMILYYA, the Family, Youth, and Young Adult Ministry, at the Chapel of San Lorenzo Ruiz.

Proceeds for the month of March will go towards sponsoring

How does the Tree of Miracles work? Take a red envelope. Write your petition. Place your donation in the red envelope and write the donation amount on the flap. Then, a member of FAMILYYA will be there to assist you in hanging up your red envelope on the Tree of Miracles. Then watch your miracle grow! *Money will be collected and recorded at the end of the day while the red envelopes remain on the Tree of Miracles until the end of the month.

Check out the Tree of Miracles at the Chapel of San Lorenzo Ruiz at 378 Broome Street (between Mott and Mulberry Streets), New York, NY 10013. Accessible by car and public transportation.
