Local family continues rich history of Christmas caroling
For the past 25 years, members of the Teofilo family, along with Moser family members, have continued an annual tradition of gathering family and friends to go Christmas caroling at St. Agnes Hospital. For all these years, the group comes together to carol at St. Agnes Hospital entertaining patients and associates alike. Although most patients want to be home by Christmas, there are always those unable to do so.
A core group of about a dozen carolers, accompanied by Steve Moser on guitar, sing every year, although the number often swells to about 20 or more depending on holiday schedules. A second generation has grown up caroling with the group, having joined them before they were old enough to walk.
Each year, there are patients who join the carolers to listen or sing along. Sometimes they follow the group. Hospital caroling has become a favorite holiday tradition for the carolers who perhaps enjoy the experience as much or more than the patients.
