Welcome to the Christ Child Society of Summit


The life of a child is a promise for the future, but for many children their future is at risk. Christ Child Society volunteers reach out to teach, motivate, clothe and care for children in their communities through the initiative of Challenging Poverty: One Child at a Time.


We invite you to view our site and find out more about the society founded by Mary Virginia Merrick and her vision that “the personal element brings true charity to life.”



Our 2021 Membership Drive is Underway

By renewing your membership or becoming a new member you will be directly supporting our programs for children, especially our layette program and our Christ Child Society scholarship which have continued despite the pandemic. We will continue these programs and more, with your help.  Your membership dollars are even more important since we have been unable to hold events such as our Rummage Sale and our Baby Shower which raise funds for our programs.   We thank you for your support!

 We have a Junior CCS!


Did you know we now have a Junior Christ Child Society?  Children in grades 8 through 12 can join this great group of students who have come together to support the activities and mission of the Christ Child Society of Summit, which is to serve children in need in our community. Some of their inaugural activities included selling roses outside the childrens’ masses at St. Teresa of Avila church on Mother’s Day to raise money for CCS, organizing a children’s book drive, collecting for Loaves and Fishes, and detagging layette clothing. For more information on becoming a Junior Christ Child Society member, contact us at ccssummit@gmail.com.
