Thank You

St. Pius X Church would like to extend its sincere appreciation to those members of the parish and friends who donated items and made purchases at our recent garage sale. We would also like to thank our parish bakers for the delicious cakes, cookies, breads, muffins, brownies, and treats.

A special “thank you” is given to all God’s Helpers who prepared the Parish Hall for the sale and assisted the bargain hunters. The Garage Sale resulted in $5,100 being deposited to the maintenance account of the church. The parish could not have done it without all your support.

Toy Project for Migrant Children

Please help St. Pius X Church provide a joyful Christmas for over 350 children of migrant farm workers during our annual Toy Drive.

If you would like to participate, please place a new, unwrapped toy (for a child up to the age of 12) or a new sweater for a child up to age 10 in one of the food baskets at the entrances to our church.

If you find shopping difficult, you can make a contribution made payable to St. Pius X Church, marked for the Toy Project, and place it in the collection basket during Mass. May the Baby Jesus keep you in His care as you continue to provide for His little ones.
