Immaculate Conception, Mattoon, and St Columcille, Sullivan, PSR students gathered together in the Immaculate Conception Christian Formation Center on Sunday, Dec. 8, to make homemade Christmas cards for The Haiti Connection. The cards will be delivered by volunteers with Eastern Illinois University's Newman Catholic Center while on their mission trip to Haiti later this month.
Students were also blessed with a surprise visit from St. Nicholas (Bill Hendrix) and listened to a story about the life of one our most popular saints.
