Once again Faith in Action is seeking Sponsors for its annual Christmas Card Project. The purpose of this project is two-fold: to build a stronger sense of inclusion and community in our large parish as we celebrate the Birth of our Savior, and to raise funds for Faith in Action’s various spiritual, humanitarian, and educational activities.

The Christmas card project is the only source of income for Faith in Action.

The tri-fold, full-color card (16.5”x 8.5”) will include an photograph of the decorated sanctuary, with a listing of the sponsors’ names; pertinent information about our parish community; the 2016-2017 Sacramental Statistics; an image of our patron saint; and a message from our pastor, Msgr. Merdian. The cover of the card this year will feature some of the youngest members of our parish community!

To become a Christmas Card sponsor, and have your name printed in the 2017 St. Pius X Parish Christmas card, return the completed form below and your donation to the Rectory no later than Thursday, November 30th.
