On Wednesday, December 6th, the residents and staff of Cabrini of Westchester braved the cold weather at a brief prayer service for the blessing of the outdoor nativity scene. While the prayer service took place in the lobby, several individuals donned their hats and coats to witness Fr. Ron Galt, Vice President of Pastoral Care and Mission, sprinkle the beautiful crèche with holy water officially beginning the Advent Season.
Before processing with the Baby Jesus outside to the manger, Fr. Ron asked all present to extend their hands in prayer as he prayed the blessing. He then shared, “The display of the nativity scene is a very public sign that we are a Cabrini family rooted in faith. Anyone that drives by our grounds will see this as a sign of who we are. We gather in a spirit of blessing, hope and anticipation of the season of Christmas with light and promise of good faith.”
