Cardinal Rigali to "Bless the Baby Jesus"

Families and individuals are also invited to support those in need during this holiday season by bringing a donation for Catholic Social Services or new clothing for infants or young children to the service. This first annual event is an opportunity to reinforce the central place of Jesus Christ, whom we prepare to receive on Christmas, within the family. The service is sponsored by the Family Life Office, Respect LIfe Office and Catholic Social Services of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.
