A Message of Hope and Comfort

On December 17, 2006, a team of eight people packed up guitars, bongos and musical equipment and headed to a local shelter that houses young people, ages 12-17, who are illegal immigrants.

Maureen McNally

On December 12th, we visited our three community Hospitals, two of which we have been visiting and singing at since Christmas 2003. This Christmas the children and staff at Shriners Burns Hospital and UTMB Hospital (both in Galveston, Texas) as well as those at Mainland Medical Hospital in Texas City were happily surprised not only by our cheerful voices caroling of Jesus’ birth and “His power and glory that evermore shall reign” but also by the special gifts we were able to bring them.
