Getting ready for Christmas at St. Raphael's

First the "Holy Hoovers" vacuum and clean the church. Then the "Mary and Martha Brigade" follow. They begin by attending mass and praying the rosary. This is the "Mary" part. Then the "Martha" part takes over as these ladies roll up their sleeves and get to work decorating the church.

This year was special as we had four young girls assist. Bella and Selma are sisters who came with their mother Michelle. Mary and Kate came with me. We brought in all the poinsettias, put out chairs, arranged the manger scene, put on the white cape for the Infant of Prague and then decorated the four Christmas trees. Led by a sweet group of "seasoned" veterans, we ladies had a great time transforming the church and serving our parish.
