    there are only three weeks before the distribu- tion we are asking that you return your gifts as soon as possible either at St. Pius X church or the Parish office located in the Mother St. John House (no later than Dec. 15th so there is time to sort, box and ready for the Christmas distri- bution on the December 17th.) The Tags for town families will be RED and the Tags for Nazareth Home for Boys will be GREEN. As with every year, we provide sizes of the child in case you want to purchase clothing and we provide a gift idea the parent has requested.

Please join us for this event that has been well received for the past several years as the children really look forward to it.

    On behalf of the fundraiser committee, our goal for the New Year 2020 is to create activities & events to continue to pay off current and outstanding debt to the diocese while also building up our community and parish family.

    Please support us any way you can by participating and volunteering.
