Church decorators add luster to Christmas services

Bringing an orderly nave out of a basement chaos, volunteer decorators at St. Patrick Catholic Church gathered Monday morning for their annual ritual.

What would Christmas morning religious services be without a brightly lit church, festooned with decorous decorations, from plants and paraments to icons and images of the divine babe and the holy family?

Bringing order and beauty to a nave from the chaos of a storage closet is an annual ritual for volunteer church decorators, such as the dozen good souls found Monday morning at St. Patrick Catholic Church in Perry.

After unearthing the stored goods from the bowels of the catacombs — really just the basement — the volunteers place the poinsettias to constructed the creche, working joyfully in company with the Rev. Luis Mejia.
