Shannon Parish was privileged to welcome Santa to two Masses on Sunday in which children were preparing for First Holy Communion. It was Bambinelli Sunday, The Sunday in Advent that people bring the figure of baby Jesus to Church to have it blessed. Santa brought his figure of baby Jesus for a blessing so that his crib at home in the North Pole would be ready for Christmas Eve. Santa spoke with the children and reassured them that he would be back on Christmas Eve. Our thanks to Michelle Justice for the photos.
