It is time to prepare for our Parish Christmas Bazaar and Bake Sale. This is an event for the entire Parish, which raises funds for all sorts of different Parish and community programs. We hope that everyone will contribute in some way to make the celebration fun for all and a success for organizations which will benefit from the proceeds.
Ten Thousand Villages is at the Christmas Bazaar!
Come and do your holiday shopping where “fairly traded” gifts give twice the joy. Your purchase pleases the receiver and makes a developing world family able to provide the basics of life for their loved ones. St. Pius X will receive 10% of the total sales. Here is a list of ways in which you can help make this parish project a success:
- Donate a new, unwrapped item or gift basket (consumable goods are most popular) for the Adult and/or Children’s Raffle Table.
