On December 9, a group of young men and women, under the direction of the Leadership Training Program and guidance of the Legionaries of Christ, celebrated the joy of Jesus’ birth in a very special way.  Inner-city children and their families were invited to attend “Angel for a Day”, located at Catholic University’s Pryzbyla Center in Washington, D.C.  The attendees enjoyed many games, a moon bounce, snow cones, popcorn, drinks and even a visit from Santa, all free of charge.  Each child was also given a gift and a Bible before leaving the event.

The volunteers hailed from various high schools around Maryland and orchestrated the fundraising and organization of the entire event.  With a visit from Washington Archbishop Donald Wuerl, songs, games, food and prizes the event was a joyous occasion for the children and a rewarding experience for the volunteers.
