Diane Maxey directed the annual Christmas cantata, this year entitled “Hope Has Hands,” yesterday afternoon at Rainycrest. The performance for the residents and their families was a warm-up for the actual cantata to be held this Sunday (Dec. 14) at 3 p.m. at St. Mary’s Church. Admission is free, but a free-will offering will be taken at the door.
