Over 225 cars attended and made their way through the Journey to Christmas. There were four stops resembling the weeks of Advent: Joy, Peace, Hope & Love where visitors received family packets filled with activities, an Advent 2020 book of daily reflections practices and prayers. There were some special candy canes handed out to children attending as well and were doanted by Tops Friendly Markets.
Food donations were collected for our St. Vincent De Paul food pantry along with warm winter items for our St. Amelia Outreach program tohelp those in need this holiday season. Monetary donations of $300 were also collected to contribute to the cause.
