Each year Catholic Womens Club, and Basilica of St. Mary parish, along with St. Mary School Share the Gift of Christmas Joy to approximately 600 needy children.  Thousands of poor children experience a Christmas without hope.  Burdened by poverty, their parents are simply too poor to provide anything but the most basic necessities.  Our basilica parish/school has committed to help fill “Christmas Boxes of Joy”.  These gift boxes are then shipped through Cross Catholic Outreach to children in Haiti, Dominica Republic, Guatemala and Nicaragua.  Let’s make a lot of kids AMAZINGLY happy again this Christmas.
