This year’s Christmas Open House was a warm and festive time, uniting donors, volunteers, mentors, residents, past residents, families of residents, and special guests interested in learning more about Gabriel’s House. Our program opened with a skit from the residents called, A Gift for Baby Jesus. Then one of our young adult residents sang “Mary Did you Know?” and the children joined in to sing more Christmas carols. Pastor Sam shared an encouraging message to the residents and all our guests. Of course, we had delicious holiday foods—this year prepared by our own Chef Tina! We also saw our residents open one of their gifts, which were beautiful blankets just in time for winter. Finally, Santa and Mrs. Claus arrived with their helpers to pass out gifts while we sang more carols. It was a very special night of celebrating the greatest gift of all, Jesus Christ. 

Thank you to everyone who generously gave to provide our women and children with such a special holiday celebration. From all of us at Gabriel’s House, Merry Christmas to you and yours!
