St. Joseph Parish & Schools
Christmas Express

December 3, 2017

     In conjunction with St. Joseph Parish's Centennial Celebration, St. Joseph Elementary School & Monsignor Haddad Middle School are bringing back its beloved ​​Christmas Express Ride!  THANK YOU to those of you who joined us on Sunday, December 3rd as Saint Joseph Schools and the Needham Center Train Station are transformed to create magical Christmas memories for our kids. 
     The Christmas Express is a wonderful train ride to the "North Pole" (West Roxbury Train Station).  Children enjoyed a holiday reading, cookies, chocolate milk, their very own bell and a visit from Santa himself!   Included in the price of the Christmas Express Ticket was the opportunity to stop by the Sleigh at Eaton Funeral Home and have your child(ren)  photographed with Santa.

    In addition to the train ride,  St. Joseph's Elementary Schoolhosted the Festival of TreesSanta’s Village Marketplace, and an Advent Keepsake Craft. Guests strolled through the beautiful display of trees decorated by locally businesses and families, and visited Santa’s Village which will include a variety of local vendors and holiday gifts including home accessories, customizable gifts, stationery, jewelry, and skin care. Children also created an Advent craft keepsake. 

    We look forward to future years of this magical train ride! Thank you again for your generosity and support of our event! Merry Christmas everyone!
