St. Mary's by-the-sea Christmas Parish Potluck

Over sixty parishioners gathered in Edwards Hall for a delicious potluck dinner on Saturday, December 21st. As we entered the Hall, we were met with beautiful decorations and warm welcomes.

Before dinner, we enjoyed an abundance of appetizers, beverages from water to wine, and a chance to mingle and get to know each other a little better. For the kid in all of us, there were cookie decorating and ornament-making activities set up in the front meeting room.

Then Kristine sat down at the piano and led us in a round of traditional Christmas carols.

Dinner options varied widely but had one thing in common – they were all yummy!

After dinner, Santa dropped by to wish us each a Merry Christmas and to hear what people hoped to find under their Christmas tree.

Fun was had by all. A special thank you to all who helped make this gathering happen and to Santa.
