On the evening of 20th December, the staff and families of Maryvale Institute gathered at the house for the annual Carol Service and party. After a candlelit procession into the Chapel while singing O Come, O Come, Emmanuel, highlights of the service included singing and dancing both by Maryvale's Bridgettines and the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, as well as a violin solo by Aimée Hanson and the children present singing Away in the Manger following Fr Edward Clare's blessing of the crib.
