Parishioners At MQH Have Breakfast With Santa


Ten-year-old Nia Hortford with Santa Ten-year-old Nia Hortford with Santa Cookies left by the Christmas tree aren’t the only goodies enjoyed by Santa Claus! Hundreds of parishioners from Mary Queen of Heaven Church stayed after the morning mass to have a delicious breakfast with old Saint Nick. After munching on bagels and danishes, Santa Claus sat with attendees and gladly accepted Christmas gift requests – whether they were naughty or nice! Families also had an opportunity to get their photo taken with the jolly Kris Kringle. The Old Mill Basin church’s Father Jamie Gigantiello even sat on Santa’s lap – but he won’t tell what he asked for!
