Archbishop Charles Chaput speaks to all CatholicPhilly.com readers in his new audio message. He hopes that everyone may imitate the boundless love of Jesus Christ and care for the sick, the poor and all those in need as we celebrate the feast of the Nativity.
Below is the winning entry in the second annual art contest to design Archbishop Chaput’s Christmas card for this year. The winning design was that of Nathan Johnson, a fifth grader at Queen of Angels Regional Catholic School in Willow Grove, Montgomery County. The contest was open to all students in the 216 parishes, 17 high schools, 119 elementary schools and four schools of special education in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.
