This will be a parish-wide effort to bring joy to small children in poverty-stricken areas. At Christmas, we experience the joy of our Lord Jesus Christ. Gift giving is a wonderful, meaningful part of that experience. Unfortunately, severe poverty deprives many children in developing countries of this joy. Their parents are unable to provide even one simple Christmas present. Through Cross Catholic Outreach’s Box of Joy program, you can ensure these children are not deprived of Christmas blessings this year.
By packing a Christmas gift box and sponsoring the cost of its shipment, you can deliver a Box of Joy to a child overseas who would otherwise receive nothing. For more information please contact Robert Strembicki at firstname.lastname@example.org
Last Year we packed 350 boxes, this year our goal is 500! We can’t do it without your help!
