CHRISTUS Spohn Hospital in Alice hosted its Christmas Lighting Ceremony Tuesday, Dec. 3.

President Thomas McKinney opened the event by thanking the community for joining the hospital in the Christmas Lighting Ceremony.

"Unfortunately many times the hospital is associated with illness and pain. I wanted something the entire community could come to celebrate for the holidays," McKinney said.

The Singing Angels from St. Elizabeth School Choir recited Christmas carols during the event and prayers by Vice President Rick Morin and Margot Rios.
