Despite all the Christmas events, the Residents wanted to have a special time of prayer families of Newtown CT. So, on Tuesday evening, December 18, we gathered around a statue of Jesus walking with little girl and boy in his embrace. This statue was surrounded with small lights representing those who lost their lives in the tragedy. The Residents and some visitors had brought the lights in procession and placed them at the statue. Using the Readings from the Mass of Holy Innocents along with songs and prayer, we felt very close to this Connecticut community.
