Box of Joy

In 2018, Catholics united through the Box of Joy ministry to send Christmas gifts to children in developing countries. For many poor children, a Box of Joy – filled with toys, clothing, school supplies, a rosary and the Story of Jesus – was the first Christmas gift they ever received.

The Box of Joy ministry provides a unique opportunity to participate in a simple and tangible service experience that has both a material and spiritual impact on the poorest of the poor in developing countries.
