This past Saturday, Milwaukee Catholic Home staff and residents collaborated with SET Ministry to host a Christmas party for a group of families and older adults living in public housing.  The event was a week in the making:

On Tuesday, residents and staff made cookies to be served at the party.

At the party on Saturday morning, staff and resident volunteers enjoyed serving holiday goodies, chatting with party-goers  about Christmas memories, and singing carols together.  Some lucky attendees won raffle prizes, including a handmade afghan.
