Saying Good-bye to 2008 & Welcoming the New Year

2008 has been a long, hard, but never-the-less rewarding year, for Nazareth House. We've had sorrows, we've saw many dear, dear friends pass on, we've had pain, and we have been without. Yet, in the same light, we've loved, made new friends, we've provided, we've had joy, we've had many wonderful accomplishments - what a jammed packed year this has been!

In the Holiday Spirit, our family & staff at St. Laurence House in Freetown, gathered their friends and neighbors, packed a picnic lunch and headed to the quiet No. 2 River beach to spend a day of celebration of fellowship, of thanksgiving, and of optimistic anticipation of new beginnings as 2009 unfolds.

A day of fun and fellowship. Best Wishes for a Blessed New Year from all of us at Nazareth House Apostolate.
