Members of the Saint Vincent Ferrer’s newly-formed Liturgical Dance Group celebrated Advent by collecting scarves, shawls, socks and other personal items to distribute to the residents of the Dr. Susan Smith McKinney Nursing Home for Christmas. Group members, accompanied by members of the choir, traveled to the nursing home on Saturday, December 18, 2023 to distribute the gifts. The group made their way through the halls of the nursing home singing Christmas carols for the residents as they presented them with their gifts. Residents who were gathered in the common areas were treated to a preview of the liturgical dance that the group is preparing for the Christmas Eve Family Mass.
The reaction was so overwhelmingly positive that the group intends to make their gift drive an annual event.
