About 400 children served by Catholic Social Services throughout the year — representing thousands more throughout southeastern Pennsylvania — enjoyed themselves at the 57th annual Archbishop’s Christmas Benefit for Children Dec. 19 at the Sheraton hotel in Philadelphia. The party included songs, skits, games, food and visits by Archbishop Charles Chaput and Santa Claus (aka Douglas Dunn, a theology teacher at Pope John Paul II High School). (Video by Sarah Webb)
