After a few years of not being able to gather together. We held our Carey Carols on the 25th of November. We had over 1500 people in attendance, with great music, atmosphere, food and fun to celebrate Christ’s birth as a community.
Mr McMullen has shared one of his experiences of the night:
“With so many people attending, our food suppliers were kept very busy. I was keen to enjoy some pizza with those I was sitting and joined the line to place an order. After standing in line for what felt like a ‘lifetime’, I finally got close to the front of the line, to be told that the customers immediately in front of me would be the last orders. The pizzas had run out. This news left me with feelings of surprise and disappointment, not to mention hunger!
As I turned to figure out what to do for dinner, one family who were waiting for their order to be cooked offered to share their meal with me. This generous offer was my highlight of the night. This moment has played in my mind repeatedly and keeps bringing me back to the birth of Jesus Christ. To be specific, by sending Jesus, God extends generosity to us.”
Thank you to the Carey Parents and Community (CPC), WCCS staff and special guests for your input on this fantastic night. We couldn’t have done it without you all.
