For the second consecutive year volunteer students from Archbishop Ryan High School traveled to local nursing homes to sing Christmas carols. This year the group went to St. John Neumann in Northeast Philadelphia and St. Joseph Manor in Meadowbrook, Montgomery County, on Friday, Dec. 20. The group, led by Father John Donia, consisted of approximately 50 students including some musicians. Santa, Rudolph and Frosty even made an appearance to bring good cheer to the residents.
