Christmas dinners set in 3 areas

Manitowoc, Oshkosh and Wautoma planning meals

By Patricia Kasten
Compass Associate Editor

Ready for Christmas? Looking forward to Mass, followed by a big meal celebrating the birth of our Savior?

Maybe you are. And maybe you don't have any family or friends with whom to spend the holiday. Then food loses some of its seasoning and the joy of the season is harder to find.

So make a new family. Meet some new friends. Come to dinner. Several groups around the diocese are sponsoring free Christmas dinners. Anyone is invited to attend. (Volunteers and donations are also welcome, so everyone has a chance to join in the sharing.)

Below are listings for some of the area dinners:

MANITOWOC: A Community Christmas Dinner will be held at noon on Christmas Day at Faith Evangelical Lutheran, 2201 S. 42nd St. Free transportation for Manitowoc residents. Reservations needed by Dec. 22. Call (920)755-4387.
