Thank You

St. Pius X Church thank you for all your support during the Holidays activities. We started with the Holiday Garage Sale the first weekend of December, which netted $613.00 for the Parish.

Then our annual Christ Child Tea the following Monday, with charitable contributions totaling $150.00, and donated to the Respect Life Program.

Our annual Toy Drive Project this year was very good! By December 20th, 301 gifts were donated; all wrapped by volunteers and picked up by the Food Ministry at San Isidro Church in Pompano. This included 35 hoodies and jackets for the youngsters. Busy Hands (Woman’s Club) delivered 87 knitted and crocheted lap robes to the Ninninger Nursing Home for Veterans in Pembroke Pines.

Once again, thank you for all the support throughout the year.
