Christmas was a special time at Queen of Peace…and it’s not over! Liturgically, the Christmas season ends on January 10, the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord. Of course, there was decorating leading up to Christmas day, but there was also more than that. Each floor had its own Christmas party with its own Santa! The employees enjoyed their party, too, as did the Associates Jeanne Jugan and our volunteers. The family of Queen of Peace is a large one. We like it that way!
To help us spiritually, the students from Kellenberg Memorial and Chaminade High Schools came for an afternoon to present a program of Lessons and Carols. The Advent season passed quickly and soon it was Christmas Eve. The chapel was beautifully decorated with donated poinsettias, trees and a life-size nativity scene.
