We want to send a special thank you to all of you who helped make our 2015 Box of Joy outreach a tremendous success!
The following video shows Cross Catholic staff and volunteers hard at work preparing the thousands of boxes for shipment to little children in need in Guatemala and Haiti.
A shoebox of toys may not seem like a lot. But for a child who has never had a real toy to play with, and who may never have even seen a Christmas tree, let alone a tree with presents waiting to be opened by him or her — the experience of receiving a Box of Joy is magic!
May God bless every individual who packed a box for a needy child! The Catholic parishes across America that came together in support of this special program are a bright and shining star, proclaiming the hope of the Christ child to a world in need.
Praise God – and Merry Christmas!
