Dear Chanel Alum and Friends of Chanel,
The St. Peter Chanel Foundation is excited to announce the 57th annual Christmas Party for Children with Cerebral Palsy and other disabilities will go forward again in 2023!
Hundreds of Chanel Alumni and friends have attended the annual Christmas party over the years. Many Chanel grads first participated in the party as students, then continue to be involved after graduation.
The Christmas Party will be held on December 3, 2023 at Padua Franciscan High School. Padua has partnered with the Chanel Foundation by hosting the event, providing student volunteers to serve as "family hosts", and helping with various other party activities the last several years.
The party is held in the Padua gymnasium, and begins at 12:00 pm. Events include:

On Sunday, September 10, 2023, Marist School Rector Father Bill Rowland, S.M. blessed and dedicated an historic sunken relief sculpture of St. Peter Chanel that was recently affixed to the northeast side of Marist School’s main classroom building, St. Peter Chanel Hall. The sculpture, originally part of the façade of St. Peter Chanel High School in Bedford, Ohio, was installed at Marist over the summer, ending its 700-mile journey to its new home at Marist School. The limestone carving will serve as a daily reminder of the selflessness and enthusiasm the first Marist saint displayed in the missionary endeavors he was called by God to pursue.
