CNR Begins Christmas Celebrations with Creche Blessing, Tree Lighting


The College of New Rochelle community marked the start of the Christmas season with songs and prayer on Chidwick Walk December 6.

Led by the Campus Ministry choir, community members sang traditional carols. Father Joseph Flynn then blessed the nativity scene, before President Judith Huntington turned on the lights for the tree.

Community members then moved into the Castle for refreshments and a staged reading of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol," featuring faculty, staff, and students.
