Emmaus Children's Christmas

Sister Anne Wambach (prioress), Sister Rosanne Lindal-Hynes (Sister Santa) and Sister Susan Doubet deliver 100 Christmas gifts for 28 families that Sister Susan and her "helper elves," especially Sister Mary Grace Hanes who wrapped dozens of pairs of sneakers, contributed to the annual Emmaus Ministries children's Christmas gift program. Each child could ask for one clothes item. "Sneakers are by far #1," said Sister Susan, "but they are followed closely by pants and 'outfits' for the 5 and under crowd...which, by the way, are delightful to pick out!"

Thank you, Emmaus, for all you do for the needy of Erie! And thanks to all the sisters at the Mount who helped and encouraged us in this annual project!
