On Sunday, December 2, 2012 at 2:00 pm, over 250 people attended The Franciscan Sisters of the Poor Annual Christmas Songfest. The Sisters invited the community to open the Christmas Season with them as choirs from McAuley and La Salle High Schools and St. Bartholomew's Bell Choir performed Christmas Carols in St. Clare Chapel at 60 Compton Road, Cincinnati (Hartwell) OH 45215.

As she opened the event, Sr. Arlene McGowan reminded us that both McAuley and La Salle High School Choirs won Silver Medals, and St.Bartholomew's Bell Choir won a Bronze Medal, for their performances at the World Choir Games in 2012.

And soon, we all knew why they were great! The Sisters and their guests showed their appreciation by giving them a standing ovation following their performance at St. Clare's Chapel. The performance was followed by a reception at the Centennial Barn, and people were having such a good time that no one wanted to leave.
