Every year the Bereavement Support Group at Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary/St. Louis Parish in Swanton and Highgate Center selects a charity to donate to at Christmas. The recipient this year was Kurn Hattin Homes for Children in Westminster. The group sent handknit scarf and mitten sets created by group members as well as a monetary donation to benefit the school. Founded in 1894, Kurn Hattin is a charitable residential home and school for children ages 5-15 whose families are experiencing a period of need or instability.
