We've enjoyed a few Christmas festivities at our different office locations over the past month!
On December 7th, we took time to acknowledge and celebrate our volunteers in the Great Bend office. This industrious group of ladies--almost a dozen strong and growing--help with our Non-Food Pantry, occasional mailings, the Annual Wine Tasting Event, client applications, data entry, cleaning, occasional rides and delivery, moral support and so much more. We really appreciate them, and we'd be in a pickle without them!
On December 12th, our staff took time from the usual hustle and bustle to celebrate Christmas, enjoy our friendships and support each other. While we function as one office, we have three locations (Dodge City, Garden City and Great Bend) and each year, we take turns hosting the annual staff Christmas party. This year, our Garden City co-workers hosted the event, and they treated us to a chance to paint our own masterpiece at the Garden City Art Center. Later, we enjoyed lunch and a gift exchange at Casa Mariachi. We also took time to wish Hattie Stein, our addiction counselor, a hearty blessing as she sets off to enjoy retirement. We will miss her!
As we embark on a new year, we extend our best wishes for a blessed Christmas and happy and healthy New Year to all our friends and supporters.

bless us whenever we gaze on the manger scene.
Through all the days of Christmas
may these figures tell the story
of how humans, angels, and animals
found the Christ in this poor place.
Fill our Catholic Charities offices and family
with hospitality, joy, gentleness, and thanksgiving.
and guide our steps in the way of peace.
Grant this through Christ our Lord.
