Boniface Outreach
2020 commemoration of St. Nicholas
SNF_Logo jpg croppedThis year we offer a unique gift and an opportunity for giving in the spirit of St. Nicholas, traditionally associated with generosity and protection, especially towards children.
We are thrilled to offer a set of four decorative art glass ornaments that represent the seasons symbolized in the Great Windows of St. Boniface Church.  This exquisite set of 2-inch bulbs was created by glass artist Stephen Kitras (, and each ornament comes in an elegant gift box.  All proceeds will go to the charitable organizations of Meals on Wheels, All Faiths Food Bank and Family Promise of Sarasota.
This year our outreach focus is prioritizing hunger and homelessness to help make a difference for those suffering during the pandemic. In addition to your ornament purchases, you are invited to make a donation through St. Boniface Church to one or more of our suggested charities. Download the order and donation form here.
