Santa Lucia Mission will hold a Christmas service at noon on December 25, followed by a Christmas dinner at 1:00 p.m. in the lower campground. The Monterey County Food Bank is contributing three turkeys, and those who are able are bringing potluck dishes to round out the meal. Many people in Big Sur have lost their homes and possessions, including the gifts they bought for each other. Your supportive presence is the best gift, but wrapped presents (tagged for men, women, older or younger girls, or older or younger boys) would be nice. In the midst of sadness and loss, the community will gather in God’s presence to celebrate the good news of Christmas together. Please join us!
