On December 13th, we were blessed to have about 45 moms and their children come to celebrate Christmas!  After lunch and games children, mothers, volunteers, Sisters and seminarians gathered around the manger as Fr. Peter Marr spoke to us and blessed us.  A Christmas story called, “Always Room for a Little One” was read by Sr. Maria Regina.

Special thanks to Fr. Marr and the St. Augustine’s seminarians for joining us, “All 4 Him” for providing music and our stellar Co-Workers who ran the kitchen and provided rides for the women.
