Love children and want to make a difference in our corner of the world?

Christ Child Society of Toledo is looking for women to join its organization. Christ Child is dedicated to serving the needs of underserved children and youth—for the love of the Christ Child.  Christ Child is an all-volunteer organization with more than 200 local members who donate over
10,000 hours annually.  Christ Child’s largest program is Clothe-a-Child. Each year the organization purchases and distributes more than 2,000 new coats, hats, gloves, and books to children birth through eighth grade. Through the Layette Program, more than 1,200 layette/newborn care packages are distributed to underserved new moms in the fall and spring. Christ Child volunteers also tutor and offer library assistance at Rosary Cathedral, Gesu, Queen of Apostles School and Hope Learning Academy. Volunteers also teach classes for new and expectant parents at several local service agencies and assist with other programs including Angel Layettes and Theatre Vision.  For more information on joining Christ Child, please visit or email  
There will be an  Advent Communal Penance Service at 7:00 PM at St. Pius on Wednesday, December 14th.  Plan now to attend.

St. Pius X/Gesu Bread Team Looking for Additional Members

May I introduce the St. Benedict Bakers. This group currently meets twice a month at Gesu church's Loyola Hall kitchen to bake bread for distribution to Toledo's poor through Labre, our partner ministry at St Johns and St Ursula high schools. Both ministries are named after St. Benedict Joseph Labre, patron saint of the homeless, the poor, the unhoused. He wore the rags of a beggar, shared his food with the poor, and was filled with the love of God and neighbor.


Directly serving the poor is a hallmark of Christian life. Jesus teaches "whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” If you would like to join our team, even if it's just once or twice a year, you can participate in the joy of this shared life. In the words of Fr. Greg Boyle, SJ, speaking about his book, 'Tattoos on the Heart', we learn that "God ... is inviting us to the margins to create a kinship with those who are out there. That is the God we know in the deepest part of us. We know that God only wants for us, not from us. We don’t have to measure up; we don’t have to perform. In asking us to create a community of kinship, God is not asking something from us, because it is in that community that the joy is. The joy for us." Boyle continues, "We want to roll up our sleeves and be in kinship. It’s about exquisite mutuality, about relationship." But the blessings don't end with just the service we provide. According to Fr. Boyle, it's much more than that. "Service is the hallway that gets you to the ballroom, where there is the exclusive mutuality of joy, kinship. God doesn’t want anything from us. God just wants us to be in that ballroom. When it stops at service, there’s a barrier—the service providers and the service recipients. But truth be told, all of us are in need of healing. It is one of those things that join us together as a human family." 


If you would like to help out, please contact St. Pius X parishioner Don Curtis to get added to the baking schedule. His email address is
