Father Paul Long interviewed Jim Cavnar, president of Cross Catholic Outreach, about the Box of Joy ministry. Cavnar described the Box of Joy ministry and its efforts to bring Christmas joy to poor children in developing countries.
Cavnar and Fr. Paul Long explained that the Box of Joy ministry is a great service opportunity for families in the U.S. to combat hopelessness and bring Christmas joy to a child in need. Nationwide, Catholic parishes, schools and groups pack Boxes of Joy with small gifts to bless boys and girls around the world.
Box of Joy kicks off in September, and groups deliver gifts to their local drop-off centers during Box of Joy Week, Nov. 6-14. To learn more on how to engage in reaching needy children through Box of Joy, please visit boxofjoy.org.
